The Minnesota franchise for the upcoming Call of Duty League starting in 2020 have officially unveiled their name as the Minnesota RØKKR and revealed a first look at their logo and branding.

Having already announced much of their roster, which features world champions Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo and Adam ‘Assualt’ Garcia, all that was left for Minnesota was to officially confirm their name.

Unfortunately, many of teams’ announcements were spoiled after a leak from the Call of Duty League website revealed team names for all twelve brands.

On October 29, RØKKR confirmed their unorthodox name, a term from Norse mythology which translates to ‘Twilight’, and is often related to the battle of Ragnaök – “The Twilight of the Gods”

In an interview with Esports Insider, WISE Ventures esports COO Brett Diamond explained that the logo represents a “mysterious helmeted figure emerging from the shadows.”

The franchise is also backed by Gary Vaynerchuk, who joined as an investor in July.

Despite being one of the first to announce the players they had signed, RØKKR are one of the last teams to reveal their branding.

Their announcement follows that of Florida Mutineers, Toronto Ultra, New York Subliners, Dallas EmpireLondon Royal Ravens, Atlanta FaZeLos Angeles OpTic, and Los Angeles Guerrillas.

We’re still waiting on official confirmation for the Chicago, Seattle and Paris franchises.

Minnesota’s roster is a mix of young talent and experienced veterans, as we have seen on a number of lineups.

The likes of SiLLY, who has been competing since the very first Modern Warfare released in 2007, is the most experienced on the roster, while the likes of Asim and TTinyy will only be entering their second year of competing at the professional level.

Warzone’s much anticipated Black Ops Cold War update has been delayed to the disappointment of Call of Duty fans across the globe.

It’s fair to say there’s a lot of excitement for Warzone’s integration into Cold War. The update is expected to bring a set of significant features to the free-to-play title including map changes, new weapons, and new modes.

As Warzone will be transitioning into a new Call of Duty title, the game will be receiving a soft reset and returning to Season 1.

In November, Activision revealed that Season 1 would arrive on December 10. Unfortunately, an announcement has revealed that the update has been delayed.

Warzone’s Cold War Season 1 has been delayed

A live blog post from Activision has revealed Warzone’s Cold War Season 1 has been delayed. This is extremely disappointing news for fans of the free-to-play title.

It was originally set for a December 10 release, but now we know it will instead be December 16.

In an official statement, devs said: “It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping… we’re taking a few more days to finalize everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community.”

Warzone has received consistent updates since its release, but none have been as huge as the integration into Cold War. Although this isn’t news fans wanted to hear, it’s better to have a polished version of the game released.

The Warzone map has barely changed since the release of the game.

The main feature fans were excited about are the map changes expected to come with the update. Warzone’s map has barely changed since the release of the game in March.

However, it looks like we’re going to have to wait a bit longer before we get these changes. Hopefully, this delay will give the developers time to polish the experience for fans of the game.

We’ll keep you updated with all the latest news on the delay.
