It IS shocking that Activision will not have a booth at E3.
Activision has teased that the publisher will be “showcasing gameplay from Infinity Ward’s ambitious new game,” during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
In a post on the company’s official blog, Activision stated it will be working with Sony to showcase the gameplay footage because the publisher will not be present on the show floor.
“In June, we’re going to be at E3 showcasing gameplay from Infinity Ward’s ambitious new game. We’re looking forward to sharing exciting new details about the next great Call of Duty game in partnership with our friends at PlayStation. We’re proud to be participating in this premier video game event, but won’t have an Activision booth on the show floor.”
However, Activision is hosting the Call of Duty Championship this fall as the conclusion to the first season of the Call of Duty World League, along with a community event giving fans “insight and access to the world of Call of Duty.”
This news marks the second publisher to confirm it will not be in attendance at E3 2016
