After it was reported that OpTic Gaming founder Hector "H3CZ" Rodriguez had bought the OpTic Gaming brand back from Immortals, many were wondering whether that would spell the end for one of the most recognizable brands in esports and gaming. 

According to sources close to the Call of Duty League (CDL), the Chicago franchise is set to undergo a rebrand to the Chicago OpTic.

First reported by The Esports Observer, the announcement is said to take place on November 11th.

The news comes after North American esports organization 100 Thieves was unveiled as the new owners of the second Los Angeles franchise spot, confirming that Rodriguez had sold the slot to long-time and legendary Call of Duty player Matt "Nadeshot" Haag. 

Opinion: Seeing the OpTic brand remaining in Call of Duty esports is certainly a successful outcome to the ordeal that has taken place for the last three years. OpTic Gaming and Call of Duty go hand in hand, and to see one of the few legacy brands disappear from the competitive scene would have been a disaster. With 100 Thieves and OpTic back in the CDL, the league is in a good position as it approaches its expansion window next year.
