    Why has there been no sign yet of tv commercial for legion?

    Legion is around the corner, less then 2 weeks away and yet zero sign of any tv promotion towards legion.
    Has WoW dropped down so low of number that they even stopped doing proper advertising?

    Do they really need it? The movie basically did all the promotion they need. It's also safe to say that a vast majority of Warcraft's audience may not even have cable TV anymore, most likely they utilize streaming services like Netflix/Amazon over actual cable.

    Not to mention at my theater I saw a Legion ad for a couple months in a row, it had several parts of the Legion cinematic in it and the release date.

    There is still plenty of fish to get from tv audience.
    Even Overwatch had it. Would be ashame to see them skipping it this year. Just like how they stopped making celebrity tv spot commercials.
    Only means bad for WoW sadly.

    Idk how you could track this but the commercials for WoD didn't help sales? Idk the lack of commercials is weird to me too.

    I don't know.

    But let me ask you this.. since you're obviously A Very Important Person and now that you've uttered A Very Important Question that no one on these boards can obviously answer:

    Do you think Blizzard's marketing department has dropped so low, they will jump in here to clarify their promotional strategy for you?

    I don't watch a great deal of TV but the only Blizzard ads I've seen lately have been for Overwatch, 2/3 days ago.

    Sometimes updated...

    Probably they decided the return they could expect from such commercials would be less than what they would cost.

    I could see them skipping it. They already have positive chatter from beta players and the movie just finished. It's also very possible that they have enough pre-sales to feel confident that it'll be a hit without outside ads. We shall see. That said - I'd love to see some tv advertising.

    I guess they only wanted to do Overwatch ads, these are just filled all over TV. But back in WoD we used to have a lot of these ads aswell, I wonder why they don't do any extra promotion like the Gorehowl replica on Time's Square.

    I'm fairly certain Blizzard themselves have realized the game does it's own marketing these days. Marketing is a HUGE cost and if you can skip it then that's a fucking golden ticket to profits.
