A well-known former professional player is making his return to the analyst desk for the first major Call of Duty World League LAN event of WWII.
Revan competed in Call of Duty from 2011 to 2014, and then he made the transition to the analyst desk. He has been a part of the broadcast talent at several tournaments, but most notably was on the desk at the 2016 Call of Duty World League Championship.
“Words can’t describe how grateful I am to be joining the team for Dallas,” Revan said. “I’ve had many great memories in this city, one being the first open CoD event I competed in back in Black Ops. Thank you to the entire team at MLG for making this happen, it’s surreal to be back.”
Revan was last a part of the broadcast talent at the PlayStation Experience Invitational in December 2016. He later announced that he was retiring from casting in March 2017.
But Revan said that he never really wanted to retire and he’s extremely excited to be back on the analyst desk for CWL Dallas.
“It’s something I truly never wanted to leave in the first place and I expressed my interest in coming back before the new title released,” Revan told Dot Esports. “Once they reached out and officially offered me the spot, I immediately accepted and have been patiently waiting for the announcement ever since. It’s definitely been a tough secret to keep. Plus I really wanted to draw some stuff on the telestrator again and I hope to do some of that at Dallas.”
It’s been one year since the last time Revan was a part of the analyst desk at a Call of Duty event, and he said it’s difficult to describe how happy he is to be back.
“Call of Duty esports has played a huge role in my life and it’s something I’m very passionate about,” Revan said. “The CWL team has constantly raised the bar in Call of Duty esports and accomplished things people didn’t think were possible for a console esport to achieve. It’s a great feeling to be a part of such a passion-driven team and I’m looking forward to another successful year of competitive Call of Duty.”
While many fans are extremely excited about Revan’s return, they’re also equally curious as to whether he’s back for good, or if CWL Dallas is just a one-time deal. But Revan said that he wants to be at future events, too—as long as they don’t interfere with his final semester at college.
“If they’re interested in having me at future events, I’m all for it,” Revan said. “I only have one class remaining to take in the spring semester before I receive my chemistry degree, so I’ll have plenty of time to continue to improve on camera and learn the game. So as long as nothing conflicts with my scheduled exams, I want to be there.”
Many Call of Duty fans will look forward to Revan’s intellectual and in-depth analysis at the 2018 CWL Dallas Open, which begins this Friday, Dec. 8.
