Esports tournament organiser ESL, part of the ESL FACEIT Group, has announced that the upcoming World Championship in Call of Duty Mobile will take place during DreamHack Atlanta.

The event will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta between December 15th and 17th and features 16 teams competing for its $1m (~£791,000) prize pool.

The event will occupy a major esports segment of DreamHack Atlanta, together with the ESL Challenger CS:GO tournament, fighting games tournaments and the ESL StarCraft 2 Masters tournament.

The addition of Call of Duty Mobile was first announced in April 2023 as a part of a larger deal between CoD’s developer Activision and the ESL FACEIT Group. The mobile version of Call of Duty has occupied all levels of the Snapdragon Pro Series, EFG’s mobile esports competitive circuit which includes the likes of Clash Royale, MLBB, Brawl Stars and Asphalt 9, among others.

The Snapdragon Pro Series consists of several events throughout the world, with CoD Mobile being featured in all competitive regions. In addition, CoD Mobile is a part of the Series’ Masters Tier, allowing the best players to qualify for Snapdragon Pro Series Mobile Masters event in early 2024.

This will be the second year in a row that the World Championship takes place in North America. Esports organisation Tribe Gaming is the reigning champion, having won last year’s event that took place in Raleigh, NC.

The competitive circuit for CoD Mobile underwent changes for 2023, due to the mentioned partnership between the EFG and Activision. The prize pool for the main event is also slightly lower than last year ($1m compared to $1.7m), but that is offset by other activations, rewards and smaller competitions during the year.
