Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:
ATVI), is set to kick-off this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 Expo) with a blockbuster lineup featuring the #1 and #3 videogame franchises of 2013 in the U.S., including toys and accessories,
according to the NPD Group
1, and what could be the biggest new videogame IP of the year. Starting Tuesday, June 10, at the LA Convention Center, the company will debut a new era for the
Call of Duty® franchise with
Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare, while showcasing the newest innovative title from the popular
Skylanders® brand with
Skylanders Trap Team™, and the highly anticipated
Destiny will be playable on the show floor. Activision will be located in the South Hall, booth #1647.
“This year’s E3 has been years in the making for us,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “Each game we are showcasing is the result of our commitment to quality and innovation: our first 3-year development and our first new lead developer on the
Call of Duty franchise in a decade with
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Our biggest innovation since we invented the Toys-to-Life category with
Skylanders Trap Team. And the result of over four years of passion, partnership and investment to bring Bungie’s vision for
Destiny to life. I think this is the best slate in Activision’s history and I can’t wait for gamers to get a closer look.”
Activision’s E3 Slate Includes:Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – Developed by Sledgehammer Games,

Skylanders Trap Team – Developer Toys for Bob, creators of the Toys-to-Life™ phenomenon, return with another exciting innovation with
Skylanders Trap Team. The newest installment to the
Skylanders franchise will reverse the magic of bringing toys-to-life, letting kids take characters out of the digital world and bring them into the physical world. In
Skylanders Trap Team, Portal Masters seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pulling them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in Traps. Players can then send villains back into the game where they play as them to fight for good.
Skylanders Trap Team will include the Traptanium Portal™, a new ring of magical energy that enables kids to not only bring their Skylanders to life, but also capture villains using the new Traps.
