While this is just a digital distribution deal, everything probably would not stop at just that. This partnership deal is likely to be expanded in the future if Blizzard has plans to hold esports events in India. The company is also a part of Activision, Call of Duty’s publisher – Blizzard balance can also be used on various Call of Duty titles on Battle-net as well.
