2019 CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE LAUNCH

August 22, 2020
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched on Oct. 25, 2019 facing strong headwinds on two fronts: stiffer competition and a more challenging climate surrounding Mature-rated video games. Our task was to captivate new and lapsed fans, fueling mass excitement for the game as the must-have blockbuster of 2019. REIGNITING A CULTURAL PHENOMENON Our team was tasked with driving cultural impact through a strategic media relations and influencer campaign. Leveraging research on other entertainment reboots and authentic voices like developers and Navy SEAL consultants, we facilitated high-impact, behind-the-scenes stories with TIME, Washington Post, LA Times, USA Today, and the Hollywood Reporter.

Highlights include an ESPN takeover with NFL star Todd Gurley and a multiplayer reveal with several Women’s World Cup Champions and NBA stars Kyle Kuzma and Klay Thompson. Migos star Offset received a special surprise when Call of Duty infiltrated his birthday gala, surprising him, Cardi B and hundreds of VIP guests with a themed cake and gaming stations. Preview experiences at the NFL, NBA, and NHL Drafts, alongside an NCAA college tour, amplified our reach with the next generation of sports stars.
