Call of Duty have launched a new marketing campaign for the upcoming Black Ops 4, kicking it off with a brilliant Post Malone inspired meme.
Call of Duty’s marketing machine has been an integral part of the franchise’s success, ruling the console gaming world for over a decade.
With Black Ops 4 coming – the fourth instalment of the most successful sub-franchise of CoD – they have launched a new content focused campaign, encouraging content creators to submit their best/funniest moments.
It is a smart move from Activision, as focusing on organic content production from places like YouTube and Twitch has undoubtedly been a key role in the success of other popular games – namely Fortnite.
