Call of Duty has already thrown King Kong, Godzilla, and Nicki Minaj into its brand synergy blender, so a Warhammer 40,000 crossover is next



“Operators are only as strong as the oaths they uphold”, says the official Call of Duty Twitter account, by way of announcing skins based on gothic space satire Warhammer 40,000 are coming to Warzone and Modern Warfare 3. Expect skins based on the Adeptus Astartes, Adepta Sororitas, and Astra Militarum among others, which is to say the superhuman space marines and battle sisters as well as the poor doomed ordinary troopers of the Imperial Guard. I suspect the marines will not actually be eight-feet tall, as that might make it a bit too easy to noscope headshot them.

Before the word “Fortnite-ification” emerges from your mouth, it’s worth mentioning this is far from the first Call of Duty crossover. CoD has already enjoyed cross-branding exercises featuring Tomb Raider, The Boys, both Godzilla and King Kong, Diablo, Spawn, Evil Dead, He-Man, actual human being Nicki Minaj, and more. There is a certain precedent in the market is what I’m saying.
