Esports organization Team Liquid announced Wednesday that it has created a dedicated team for the Black Ops 4 Battle Royale format, Blackout.

Call of Duty is one of gaming’s most storied franchises and their push into the Battle Royale sector caught our attention. With our current dominance in both PUBG and Fortnite, it only makes sense to make a push towards Blackout,” Team Liquid said in the announcement.

The new Blackout team will feature four initial members: Brenden “Casper” Marino, Gage “Caliburn” Meyer, Thomas “Flankxr” Cook and Tanner “Rogue” Trebb.

This news comes just days after Jay Puryear, director of brand management at Treyarch, and Adam Apicella, vice president of league and event operations at Activision Blizzard’s MLG, revealed that the Call of Duty World League (CWL) will not feature Blackout in the current season, which launched last weekend.

Team Liquid has revealed that it will host a series of weekly open tournaments and invitationals, as it aims to be the first to host a full-squad broadcast event in Blackout.

aXiomatic, Team Liquid’s parent company, recently closed its own $26 million financing round, which was notably led by six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan.
