Activision’s confirmed to Polygon there won’t be a Call of Duty XP this year following the launch of the event last year.

It wouldn’t rule out hosting a future XP event down the line, but teased “experiences” that will form part of the publisher’s gamescom plans in August.

“Last year’s Call of Duty XP was a great way to celebrate our Call of Duty community and reveal Call of Duty Elite,” Acti said in a statement.

“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 its possible we may host another XP in the future, we don’t have plans to hold the event this year.”

Last year’s Call of Duty: Elite featured the unveil of Call of Duty: Elite’s premium features and the first showing of Modern Warfare 3’s multiplayer.

Any event at gamescom or afterwards will likely show how Elite fits into Black Ops 2 and the first glimpse at its multiplayer ahead of the release on November 13.
