This event is for fans, not just the lucky ones to attend in person. Whether it's through Xbox  Live, the Call of Duty YouTube channel, Facebook, Twitter or other broadcast  avenues, there will be numerous ways to be a part of the action wherever you  are. Hirshberg said "We're going to have keynote speeches, press  conferences, panels with all of the key developers, and the ability to get to  the know the developers up close and personal," Hirshberg explained. "We don't  have the full schedule of speeches, but it will be anything you want to know to  get a behind-the-scenes look at the development process and the people  responsible for creating the game and the franchise. Obviously we're going to shine a big spotlight on our developers at this event."

More than 6,000 tickets will go on sale on July 19 for $150 each. Considering more than 25K people attended last year's BlizzCon, which still managed to sell out in minutes, not hours, the scale of the event seems very conservative to us. Activision wants it be a size where everybody who's there has an A+ experience, they don’t want to create a situation where people were standing too long in  line, or having an experience where we couldn't deliver an A+ experience for every single attendee. At around 6,000 attendees at $150 a person, Activision is  raising less than $1 million for charity. is heading to Los Angeles for the Call of Duty: XP on Sept. 2nd!
