The same reason people get excited for a movie trailer or when an artist announces a new album even though there is no new music yet. It's something people have wanted and it gets them excited knowing it's coming.
A movie trailer actually shows the movie. An artist you already know their music. None of what you said compares to a CGI trailer that shows nothing, or just a title trailer like Fable was or Elder Scrolls 6.
