    Controllers only.

    The 2021 season for the Call of Duty League is making the move to the personal computer, or PC for short. The league, which was typically played on the PlayStation 4, will make its PC debut for this upcoming 2021 season.

    There's just one small catch.

    Even though the league will be playing on PCs in 2021, players will not be allowed to use a mouse and keyboard.



    That sure is a weird thing to mandate. Why move to PC...
