No Call of Duty XP event this year

The community gathering is on hold for now, but may return in the future

Activision has promised to "surprise and delight" Call of Duty fans in the run-up to Black Ops 2's November release, but it won't be doing so with another Call of Duty XP event.


Last year's CoD XP event was a celebration of all things CoD aimed at the fans, and was also used as a handy platform for Activision to pimp Modern Warfare 3 and its new Elite subscription service ahead of launch. Despite its popularity, the event won't be returning this year.

"Last year's Call of Duty XP was a great way to celebrate our Call of Duty community and reveal Call of Duty Elite," Activision 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 it's possible we may host another XP in the future, we don't have plans to hold the event this year."
