Yes, simply posting the logo for Modern Warfare 2 has generated more interest on social media than the first trailer for the latest COD.
Just a logo. That’s all it took for Activision to generate more traffic on Twitter yesterday with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 than Vanguard did with its first trailer, a sign of increased public interest in the next instalment in the veteran action shooter’s hit series.
The short teaser for Infinity Ward’s FPS has reached 2.2 million views in less than 24 hours…
Let’s talk data! The short teaser animation for Infinity Ward’s FPS reached 2.2 million views in less than 24 hours, while the first trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard was viewed 1.9 million times just a few months after its release. The difference in the virality of the content is even more significant, with more than 9,000 retweets compared to the 35,800 retweets of the above video so far.
We’ll have to wait for more tasty content, such as the shooter’s demo video, to see the difference in interest between the two titles, but all signs point to Activision increasing the number of users again.
A few days ago, the company, which is up for sale to Microsoft, confirmed that it lost 50 million monthly active players last quarter compared to the same period the previous year, a clear sign that interest in Vanguard has waned compared to Black Ops: Cold War, which will be in stores in 2019.
Activision is quite optimistic about Modern Warfare 2, calling the episode the most advanced game in the long-running series a few days ago.
