For many companies, 2020 was one of the worst years ever, but for gaming, it was quite a positive year. It certainly was for Call of Duty. During 2020 two titles were released, Warzone and Black Ops Cold War, but above all, it was the revenue that reached crazy results.
Warzone became a global hit and this allowed Activision to outdo Riot Games. In fact, for the first time, Call of Duty has earned more than League of Legends, an incredible result. Think that Call of Duty earned $ 1.95 billion in 2020 including nearly $ 700 million in just a 2-month span.

An unbelievable result that rewards Activision’s new policy. It must be said that the League of Legends game launched in 2009 did not do too badly. LoL made $ 1.75 billion, so was really close to beat Call of Duty
Call of Duty grows at a dizzying pace mainly thanks to the fact that Activision has changed policy, not only launches a new game in the series every year but above all offers subscription services that make Activision’s revenues grow greatly.
League of Legends remains the number 1 eSports but you have to watch from Call of Duty that is growing massively in America. More and more fans in the United States are following the Call of Duty League, numbers that grow exponentially, and that leads us to think that in a couple of years or so there will be more fans watching Call of Duty League rather than the LCS (the League of Legends North American league). Also because Activision is focusing a lot on making the Call of Duty League more enjoyable and interesting not only to the great eSports fans but also to those who are just approaching this world.
Definitely, a winning tactic considering that many bettors are now turning to eSports betting and Call of Duty could be the winning solution for them too.
