League of Legends
Call of Duty
On Wednesday, the news about the Call of Duty League’s 12th team became official; Kraft Sports Group and Oxygen Esports are partnering to bring the CDL to Boston, buying the 12th spot in the league from Envy/OpTic. The press release from Oxygen Esports, who will run the organization, didn’t include any information surrounding the roster or team name, though. While nothing is official yet, the organization dropped a cryptic video on Twitter that seems to confirm the team’s name: Boston Breach.
Shortly after the news broke about Boston’s entry into the CDL, Twitter detectives discovered a new account. The account was named @BostonBreach and had a video that was posted two days ago. The video told viewers to wait for some kind of news but nothing more. This by itself is intriguing, but Twitter users took it a step further to discover that the account’s recovery email was an Oxygen Esports email. This, paired with the new video from Oxygen Esports, all but confirm the Boston Breach.
Boston Breach coming to the CDL?

The video posted by Oxygen Esports has the CDL logo along with some hacking-type screens. Towards the end of the video, the words “security breach ” appear. Naturally, this doesn’t appear to be a coincidence with the Boston Breach Twitter account popping up yesterday. Interestingly enough, though, no official trademarks for that name have been filed as of the time of writing.
Of course, Oxygen Esports could be pulling off a massive bait when they saw the Boston Breach Twitter account was found. If that is the case, then fans will have to wait a little longer before seeing a team name reveal.
Oxygen Esports isn’t wasting time in announcing staff, however. Today, the organization revealed that Denholm “Denz” Taylor is joining the team as a general manager. Perhaps this means that an official roster and team name announcement could be coming sooner rather than later.
The Call of Duty League 2022 season begins on Feb. 3.
