Call of Duty XP 2012 Not Going Ahead
If you can remember last September, we were still awaiting the arrival of Modern Warfare 3 and were buzzing with anticipating over what the game will bring to the table. The Call Of Duty XP 2011 event was the designated stage for the games massive splurge of information and was a profitable project by publisher Activision. This year however, will not see the event go ahead, with the possibility of the expo being held in 2013.
Call of Duty XP 2011 let fans get involved in a range of things from, playing multiplayer and spec-ops on Modern Warfare 3, a massive zip-line, a paintball arena based on Modern Warfare 2 map “Scrapyard” and many other Call of Duty related activities, Activision even donating all of the ticket sales to the Call Of Duty Endowment charity. So why hasn’t Activision gone ahead with Xp 2012? Well, there’s more than one reason.
Activision have told Gaming site Joystiq that, they want to emphasis more on Germany’s Gamescom event held in Cologne this coming August. The publisher also looked back at the 2011 event and noticed it wasn’t run as smoothly as the likes of E3 or Comic-Con, with people waiting long periods of time to take part in the entertainment on offer. This doesn’t rule out Call of Duty XP forever though, we could be seeing the event return in 2013 under better circumstances and run more smoothly.
I’m actually surprised Activision didn’t go ahead with the event and reveal Black Ops 2 multiplayer in more detail. The event makes money and even if the same experience from last year was on offer, fans would still flock in their thousands to get a glimpse of what they would be buying in November.
