The offseason for the 2022 Call of Duty League season is in full swing. Nearly every organization has announced a new roster for Call of Duty: Vanguard. Like many predicted, rostermania has been wild with veterans like Sam “Octane” Larew  joining organizations they’ve played for before.

Only a few teams have yet to announce their new rosters — including London — although we’re pretty sure we know who is playing for them judging by early Call of Duty: Vanguard tournaments.

The deadline to announce contract extensions has past, meaning teams like Atlanta are all but locked in for the 2022 CDL season. We’ve got some huge moves o the books, including Ian “Crimsix” Porter to New York and a merger between Dallas and Chicago. There are also reports that a prospective Washington D.C. investor has lost interest in joining the league.

Here is everything we know about 2022 Call of Duty League rostermania so far.
