Next Call of Duty to debut at E3 2016, Activision won’t be there

Publisher of the massive Call of Duty franchise Activision has announced that the next game in the franchise–the 13th mainline release–will be revealed at E3 2016 in June.

The game will not be joined by other games in the company’s traditional show booth, as the company has also announced that it will not be participating in the exhibition.

Last month, Electronic Arts said that it would not have the same presence it has had at E3 and is instead opting to host a public event in neighbouring areas of Los Angeles.

Activision usually announces its upcoming Call of Duty in late-April, followed by a teaser trailer in May, and gameplay at either Microsoft or Sony’s media events. This year, the company will be partnering with PlayStation (as they did with last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III) to show off their latest creation.

The announcement was made by way of the Activision blog, though it appears to have been buried among a bunch of announcements relating to other Call of Duty announcements, such as the Championship and World League’s Division Challenges.

We will still of course be reporting on all the craziness from E3 this year, including the new Call of Duty game, whatever this year’s theme is.

Do you expect any other companies to drop out of E3 2016? Who will we see in their place on the show floor? Let us know in the comments below!
