Unlike other members of the gaming industry, Activision is not set to have a show or booth of their own at Call of Duty’s 2019 title?

With E3 2019 right around the corner on June 11-14, gamers across the world are hoping that there will be announcements about their favorite titles and series at the annual spectacle.

In particular, Call of Duty fans who are eager for any sort of news about what to expect from the franchises next title, have been targeting the trade fair as a possible announcement point. All signs have pointed to a return to the Modern Warfare series, which has hadn’t an iteration since 2011 – which has had announcements at E3 in the past.

Multiple Modern Warfare 4 ‘leaks’ have surfaced but it’s still not confirmed that MW4 will be the new game.

While fans may be grasping any sliver of news about CoD 2019, it now appears unlikely that E3 will offer them salvation and an end to their arduous wait. In a leaked floor plan for the upcoming event discovered by users of the ResetEra Forum, Activision is not set to hold a booth at the event despite doing so in recent years.

While having a booth spot isn’t the be all and end all, the game publishers are currently not set to hold a press conference either – which severely damages hopes of some announcement.

ResetEraActivision’s absence is notable compared to its peers.

Will Call of Duty be at E3?

Couple all that with the fact that Sony, the company which holds Call of Duty’s marketing deal, has chosen to skip the event and it appears as if the hope for big Call of Duty 2019 news at E3 is pretty bleak.

However, that doesn’t mean that an announcement for the next game is dead in the water. Activision confirmed to GamesIndustry that they will have a presence at E3, but that will come in the form of behind-closed-doors meetings.

They have, also, already confirmed that they will, before June 30, announce what game they are releasing as the next Call of Duty – so there isn’t too much time left for fans to wait regardless.

However, it remains to be seen just how, and when, Activision will announce the next game but it certainly looks like it won’t be at a big E3 show.

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
