Activision Blizzard To Stream E-Sports Live On Facebook

If you're still not convinced e-Sports has arrived, it's now Facebook official. Variety says Activision Blizzard and MLG are partnering with Facebook to live-stream their upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 tournament. MLG demoed this new experience, which will be in HD and feature up to the minute leaderboards and statistics to viewers.

It was only a matter of time before Facebook made a run at Twitch, but can they pull it off? They've tried and failed in the past, but it's hard to count out a behemoth like them when it comes to growing brands! I'm excited to see how it turns out, and how a mainstream audience reacts to seeing it on their feed! Be sure to be watching Facebook June 10th as that's when it all goes down!
