Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag is a former Call of Duty pro and the founder of 100 Thieves. Last year, he’d announced that the iconic organization would not be a part of the franchised Call of Duty Global League. Nadeshot also released a video last year stating that the organization wasn’t in a shape to invest money and support recurring costs to join the league.
The announcement had come as an enormous shock. One, they were a very prominent organization with a hegemonic fan base in Call of Duty. Two, 100 Thieves had invested in the League of Legends league a few years before. So they had proven they weren’t averse to investments.
In a recent podcast with Hector Rodriguez, Nadeshot discussed the possibility of the CoD League shifting to a 4v4 format. This debate has gathered a lot of attention. It has also pointed to an expansion of the COD League.
At the moment, the League is exclusive to PlayStation players. Another branch in the conversation was the incorporation of PC players.
“Do you think that there is going to be a time in which cross-play is a thing?” HECZ asked Nadeshot.
And this is where things got interesting. Nadeshot replied that he wasn’t sure if he should answer the question because of his NDA with the Call of Duty League.
100 Thieves would make a significant addition to the franchise expansion. Perhaps the inclusion of PC players would give Nade an incentive to do it.
There have been a lot of murmurs around 100 Thieves signing an established deal that could see them become a part of the expansion program.
However, a lot of things remain unanswered right now.
What does expansion really mean? Will there be a shift to a 4v4 style of play?
Will the league incorporate PC and enable cross-play?
And what does this NDA mean for 100 Thieves?
