Comic-Con isn’t too far off, taking place in just a couple of weeks in sunny San Diego. And it appears that Activision will be there in full force, as the publisher has just announced that it will host panels for three of its biggest games this year, including Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: WWII.
Of course, we knew about Call of Duty prior to the announcement, with the developers at Sledgehammer Games spilling the beans. But this is big news for Crash Bandicoot, as he’ll have his day in the sun yet again following the success of N. Sane Trilogy. And, of course, Destiny 2 will get some great exposure as well.
Here are the details on the panels, so prepare your schedule accordingly!
