COD World Championship Most Watched Event in COD eSports History

Seems that a few people might have watched the COD World Championships during what was a fun filled weekend at COD XP 2016.

Team EnVyUs’ thrilling win over Splyce in last Sunday’s epic showdown, pitting the top American squad head-to-head against Europe’s top team was the most viewed esports event in Call of Duty history. Fans tuned-in to Sunday’s epic conclusion held at Call of Duty XP, to watch these two hard-charging teams compete for their share of $2M – the biggest prize purse in franchise history.  Broadcast across five languages, the worldwide peak concurrent viewership topped the previous record for Call of Duty esports events by more than 40%, including previous COD Championship and Stage Finals.  Combined the Call of Duty Championship matches surpassed more than 20 million views.



The esports competition was held in front of a sold-out audience of thousands of fans inside the Forum in Inglewood as teams attempted to survive four days of intense competition playing Black Ops III. The action was shown around the world via Twitch, MLG.TV, YouTube as well as viewed in-game itself (Black Ops III PS4) on the Live Event Viewer. Reflecting the worldwide appeal of the CWL, the action was produced and broadcast in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.  According to Activision, more than 40% of the viewing audience tuned-in from Europe.

Here is on final stat to wrap your head around: Heading into the CWL Championship, Call of Duty competitive fans had already viewed more than 1.1 billion minutes of content across 100 million tune ins. Yep, that is a lot of people watching COD for sure.
