Activision Blizzard Inc (NASDAQ: ATVI) has partnered with TeamSpeak in a multi-year deal that will label the VoIP application as the Call of Duty League's communications partner.
The application will be integrated into all in-game communications through 2023.
Jack Harari, VP of global partnership development at Activision Blizzard Esports, said in a release: "TeamSpeak offers best-in-class broadcast communications capabilities that we rely on to empower and optimize our teams and players. We have an obvious advantage entrusting TeamSpeak to provide this critical part of our operations in highly competitive environments where seamless voice communications are critical to successful broadcasts of live competition.”
This partnership isn't too surprising considering the Overwatch League signed with TeamSpeak back in December.
“Working with the Call of Duty League is a strong indicator of the continued adoption of our technology as the solution of choice among the leading competitive leagues and teams worldwide," said Ian Bamford, CEO of TeamSpeak. "Our technology ensures seamless in-game communications for every scenario, whether all-virtual, or for live, in-person events.”
TeamSpeak's deal as the Call of Duty League's communications partner will include a "global digital marketing program" that will push online brand sponsorships and community campaigns.
When live events can return, the partnership will also include stadium support.
