Several teams teased the return of CoD LAN in the past few days, but the Call of Duty League Twitter account made it official.

However, it’s not certain if this is a full return to CoD League LAN tournaments or when in the League’s 2021 schedule LAN will make its comeback.

“In coordination with our teams, we’re happy to announce Call of Duty League plans for teams to return LAN play at select events later this season,” the tweet said.

The decision is also in keeping with recent announcements from Blizzard, Activision's other half.

Atlanta FaZe teased the possibility of CoD League LAN tournaments on April 13 with a tweet showing a League tag bearing the name “BACK2LAN.”
