The new Twitter account has been officially created just shortly ahead of the community reveal event, and signals an increased emphasis on the keyboard and mouse players.

The esports community may speculate that Call of Duty will be investigating the possibility of PC competitive, however the console tradition is likely too strong to be shifted entirely at this point.
But, at the very least, the growth of a larger Call of Duty community on PC is a major step forward for the continued success of CoD generally, as more and more casual players move to PC.
