Splyce and Toronto Defiant Owners OverActive Media to Field CoD Franchise Team

-

According to a press release, OverActive Media is one of the first five organizations to sign on to Activision Blizzard’s Call of Duty franchising plan.


According to a press release and the Activision Blizzard earnings call, OverActive Media (OAM), the owners of Splyce and the Toronto Defiant, is one of the first five organizations to agree to a Call of Duty franchise team. This makes OverActive Media the first organization to field teams in all of the three major games: League of Legends, Overwatch, and now Call of Duty. OAM also has teams in Rocket League, Starcraft, and Smite. The OAM Call of Duty franchise will be based in Toronto.

Toronto joins Atlanta, Dallas, Paris, and New York as cities that Activision has confirmed will field teams when the franchised league begins. The league itself is rumored to start sometime in 2020.

OAM Joins 4 Other Organizations in CoD Franchising

Activision Blizzard CEO had this to say about the Call of Duty franchising:

“In each of the five founding franchises announced today, we are partnering with existing Overwatch League team owners who have first-hand experience of our esports vision and capabilities and recognize the scale of the opportunity for a global, city-based Call of Duty league. We look forward to announcing more details around these cities and other team sales in the coming months.”

It seems that OAM might already have a place for their brand-new Call of Duty team to play. Recently, Canadian OAM brands such as the Toronto Defiant and the Montreal Rebellion have been showcasing the Esports Central Arena in Montreal heavily over the past few days.

In any case, the only thing we know for sure is that OAM will bring a Call of Duty team to Canada. Chris Overholt, President and CEO of OverActive Media, followed up Kotick with this statement on the new franchise:

“Overactive Media is building a world-leading, global esports platform that will redefine the future of sports and entertainment. Our expanded partnership with Activision Blizzard and the acquisition of the Toronto Call of Duty franchise signals yet another significant step toward our goal. Today, we stand alone as the only organization who can offer our marketing partners, investors and fans access to the three most important esports leagues in the world.”
