Activision Hits SDCC with ‘Call of Duty’ and ‘Spyro’ Franchises
Call of Duty will get quite the show
Activision is bringing several of the publisher’s most popular franchises to San Diego Comic-Con this year. There will be plenty to see from the “Call of Duty,” “Spyro,” “Crash Bandicoot” and “Destiny” worlds at this year’s event, with panels and presentations available to those attending. SDCC guests can check in with Activision’s iconic franchises at the panel discussions for both Call of Duty and Spyro and there will be a wide-array of loot and collectables to purchase, as well as talent signings, and announcements.
The centerpiece this year will be “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4,” which is hosting a special panel on July 19th. Treyarch’s Jason Blundell (Sr. Executive Producer) and Craig Houston (Lead Writer) will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Call of Duty’s Zombies and discuss what’s next for the studio’s signature undead in the upcoming installment. Fans will preview never-before-seen footage and be the first to hear any exciting special announcements confirmed at the event.
The “Spyro: Reignited Trilogy” should be another seat-filler, that panel is taking place on July 19th as well. The panel will connect Spyro’s creation with his present by giving fans an exclusive look into the creative process behind the original games from the ’90s and the 2018 remastered collection. Panelists include key members of the Insomniac Games and Toys For Bob development teams, Stewart Copeland (composer of the original Spyro soundtrack), Tom Kenny (the voice of Spyro), and Michael John (Producer at Universal Interactive Studios on the original Spyro trilogy). With this panel, some of the most talented names in entertainment will share their unique experiences in creating and remastering one of the most beloved trilogies in platforming history. Activision has teased that there will be a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive giveaway slated for panel attendees.
Activision will also have Destiny and Crash Bandicoot merchandise and collectables on-hand at this year’s event, so be sure to save some time if you are hitting SDCC and browsing between panels.
