Also there Call of Duty League is struck by the chaos derived from allegations against Activision Blizzard on discrimination and sexism, with even theUS army who decided to remove sponsorship official of the event, along with other companies.
As we have seen, Activision Blizzard was sued for male chauvinism and maltreatment of female workers, and the thing, which emerged last month, triggered a chain reaction with several consequences, including Diablo 4’s Game Director and Lead Level Designer who left Blizzard.
An event in sight and full of sponsors such as the Call of Duty League could not remain unscathed from such a storm, and in fact various defections were immediately recorded: the most important are that of the United States Army, which supported the eSport event. through an official partnership, and also that of ASTRO Gaming, the company specializing in the production of gaming accessories.
All the various promotional materials related to the Call of Duty League have been changed to no longer include the two logos in question, which until recently stood proudly among the supporters of the official eSport event dedicated to the famous first-person shooter.
However, these are not the only cases detected in these days, since the removal of T-Mobile as an official sponsor of the Overwatch League has also been recorded, as well as several other companies that have removed the support. Difficult to quantify at the moment the economic damage of such chaos, but it is likely to be massive.
