For the past couple of years, Activision chose to reserve most of the big Call of Duty news, usually related to multiplayer, for its “Call of Duty XP event. That won’t be the case this year, however.
In a statement to Polygon, an Activision representative confirmed that the company has chosen not to throw another Call of Duty XP event ahead of the launch of Black Ops 2. The rep didn’t discount an event next year, however, so Activision may revisit it later.
“Last year’s Call of Duty XP was a great way to celebrate our Call of Duty community and reveal Call of Duty Elite,” the representative told 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.”
Gamescom is set to kick off this August, so we’ll likely hear something about Black Ops 2‘s multiplayer around that time.
Are you looking forward to see Black Ops 2‘s multiplayer?
