Activision Blizzard wins Game Publisher of the Year
The Clio Entertainment Award goes to the publisher that received the most nominations out of any other company.
We’re going to need a bigger shelf.
Activision Blizzard won Game Publisher of the Year from the Clio Entertainment Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, adding to an already banner 2023. The awards recognize creative excellence in entertainment marketing, and we’re honored to have received two individual awards as well as the Publisher of the Year award, which means our games received the most nominations out of any other company. Given Microsoft/Xbox’s past winning streak…we’re happy to keep the award in the family!
Activision Blizzard was honored alongside Netflix, which won Network of the Year, and Universal Pictures, which won Studio of the Year.
Adding to the big night, Call of Duty also took the top prize for Branded Content for its “Corrido of Duty” campaign. As part of the global launch for Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty partnered with hit musical group Banda MS to create a custom song that was featured in the game.
Also, Activision Blizzard’s charity program Loot for Good won for Experiential/Event/Activation. Each time a player extracted $30,000 of in-game cash during a DMZ match in Call of Duty: Warzone, Loot for Good allocated $1 to the Call of Duty Endowment to place veterans into high-quality jobs for a total of $1 million.
Activision Blizzard was on the shortlist for 34 individual awards, including for outstanding work on Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Warzone, Call of Duty: Mobile, Diablo 4, and Overwatch 2.
