Well, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare trailer is now one of the most disliked gaming video on YouTube. However, that isn’t a problem as Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre orders are strong. This is exactly what happens every year, fans complain and hate the reval and then go on to pre order a copy but I think the case is a little different his year.
But before we discuss how its different lets see what Activision had to say about YouTube dislikes and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare pre orders.
According to Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing
First of all, you’ve gotta love the passion of gamers. This is an industry like no other, and a fan base like no other, and we love that our fans treat this franchise like it’s their own and has 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. That’s a good thing.
Secondly, of course we know that there are people in our community who are nostalgic for the boots-on-the-ground style gameplay, and 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 delivers that. And the good news is, this year we found a way to deliver both in one package while keeping our community together
Well, Mr. Hirshberg there hasn’t been any innovation in Call of Duty for a long time. Secondly, your pre orders are strong because a large part of the community wants to get their hands on Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and you are not selling it separately from Infinite Warfare.
It would be very interesting to see server data three months down Infinite Warfare’s release because I believe most of the community would be seen playing COD 4 online.
