There will be no Call of Duty XP event this year, Activision has confirmed.
Last year the publisher held a massive convention in Los Angeles to celebrate the upcoming release of Modern Warfare 3. Featuring paintball matches based on maps from the series, as well as a concert by Kanye West and a tournament with a million dollar prize fund, it was quite the thing.
But it won’t be happening again this year. Instead, Activision is looking at alternative events to be held around big conventions such as Gamescom in Germany. Call of Duty XP may return some time in the future.
In a statement on the One of Swords community blog, Activision said "Last year's Call of Duty XP was a great way to celebrate our Call of Duty community and reveal Call of Duty Elite.
“Each year we try to surprise and delight our fans and this year we are planning to host some new experiences for our fans around the globe including at Gamescom later this summer in Cologne, Germany,” Acti continued.
“While its possible we may host another XP in the future, we don't have plans to hold the event this year."
