Get your first look at in-depth Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare gameplay as Reyes and his crew infiltrate and take down an enemy SetDef destroyer. Launching from the UNSA Retribution, the SCAR team must engage in intense Jackal dogfighting and close-quarters combat through zero-g to accomplish a coordinated assault with the UNSA Tigris. Welcome to the deadly world of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
It has been just over a week since Activision and Infinity Ward debut the trailer for the 2016 entry to the series Infinite Warfare. It is safe to say that the launch could have gone better with the trailer receiving mass criticism from the Call of Duty fan base. The video has now racked up more than 1.3million dislikes, a massive low for any CoD video. This number just keeps on rising and will continue as more and more get on the bandwagon. It currently sits at number 5 of the most disliked youtube videos EVER.
Could it reach the number one spot (not a stat Activision will want to publicise)? The video is still a long way off Justin Bieber’s Baby at number 1 with over 6 million and Rebecca Black’s Friday at 3 million taking the second spot.
People need to chill out.
Check the trailer out below if you have not seen it.
During the Activision Q1 earnings conference call, CEO Eric Hirshberg addressed the negativity around the new infinite warfare trailer which has received over 370,000 dislikes on YouTube – the highest ever for a Call of Duty trailer.
First of all, you gotta love the passion of gamers. This is an industry like no other and a fan base like no other. We love that our fans treat this franchise like their own and have such strong points of view about it. There just aren’t many entertainment franchises on earth that can generate the kind of passion that Call of Duty can… and that’s a good thing.
Secondly, of course, we know there are people in our community who are nostalgic for the boots on the ground-style gameplay; that’s why we made Modern Warfare Remastered. But we also have millions of people in our community who want to have new innovative experiences in the game each year and Infinite Warfare is going to deliver that.
The good news is this year we found a way to deliver both in one package while keeping our community together. While of course we see the passionate opinions online, we also look at other measurements and the fact is — while it’s very early — pre-orders are off to a very strong start. Views of the reveal trailer … are up and, in fact, the number of likes per view on the Infinite Warfare trailer are the highest we’ve ever seen.
We’ve seen this in the franchise before. The reveal trailer for Black Ops 2, which took the franchise into the future for the first time, had the most dislikes of any reveal trailer we had ever made at that time. And that went on to become our most successful game ever.
Right now, the franchise has never been stronger. We have more people playingBlack Ops 3, a game that takes place in the future, with boost jumps and fictitious weapons, than any game in our history.
What we know for sure is that if we always just did what worked in the past and never took any creative risks, we wouldn’t have a franchise. The day to worry is the day we stop trying new things.
