The lights are on
The future of Activision’s fan celebration and convention is thrown into doubt. Last year in Los Angeles, Activision held an event dedicated solely to Call of Duty. This event was called the Call of Duty Experience (Call of Duty: XP) and it featured live music from kanye West and the Dropkick Murpheys, paintball, a $1 million gaming tournament, Jeep off-loading, and a full scale model of Burger Town from Modern Warfare 2.It appears that Activision does not intend to stage the event this year, saying in an official statement to Polygon: “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. While its possible we may host another XP in the future, we don't have plans to hold the event this year.”To give you a better idea of last year’s Call of Duty: XP, check out the video below from One of Swords.
