While Activision won't have a booth at E3, that doesn't mean Activision still can't bring on the action with their most popular upcoming games. Just today, they announced plans for their E3 schedule including their most popular franchise, Call Of Duty.
The three games Activision will be showcasing is, of course, Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Skylanders Imaginators and Destiny: Rise Of Iron.
While Activision released the reveal trailer for Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare a few weeks ago, it was met with a resounding dislike, making it the second worst video on YouTube ever. So hopefully Activision has something really cool planned for the newest installment.
Recently, Activision announced that they would be hosting an fan event in September for Call Of Duty which would include gameplay sneak peeks at the remastered version of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It seems like Activision is trying to think of a worthy gameplan to win back the support of Call Of Duty fans.
Activision also just recently announced the newest version of their Skylanders franchise, called Skylanders Imaginators. This game pack is supposed to totally change how people will be playing the Skylanders franchise, eliminating the need to purchase the figurines just to play them in-game.
Finally, just today the Destiny: Rise Of Iron expansion was officially revealed with a September release date and details about the game, but I know fans probably want to learn and see more. And hopefully during Activision's showcase they will.
The press release doesn't say what time the showcase will occur, but does say it will take place on Tuesday, June 14 on the first day of E3 at the LA Convention Center.
I know Activision always has a lot planned for its games and usually is on-point with marketing, so I'm not worried about them turning around opinions for the new Call Of Duty _game. But I am interested to see more about the new _Skylanders game, mostly because it's an entirely new concept than what the game has ever done before. Even toys-to-life games like Disney Infinity didn't have the balls to figure out a way to get rid of their pricey toy gimmick. And look what happened to them. I'm a firm believer that if you want to stay relevant, then sometimes you have to be bold and change. And that's exactly what Activision is doing with Skylanders, and I really think it will pay off for them.
