Call of Duty has dealt with plenty of boycotts and angry fans in the past. The Infinite Warfare reveal trailer was another thing entirely, however, with more downvotes than many trailers have views. It was so one-sided Activision even put out a response.
The latest Infinite Warfare footage from E3 looks miles better. But do you think that’s stopped the internet downvote train? Course not.
At the time of writing the official gameplay trailer from E3, which is the seven or so minutes of space combat and shooting shown during the Sony conference, has 346,103 views. Out of those, 36,613 people have given a thumbs up — while just over 40,000 have continued to air their disappointment with the game.
It’s a stark contrast from the more than 2.9 million people who took a brief moment to registered their dislike of Infinite Warfare:
Mind you, this is the Call of Duty crowd we’re talking about. There could be 20 million downvotes and people will probably still pre-order Infinite Warfare anyway because you’ll get a remastered version of Ghillies In The Mist.
COD’s campaign might be a laugh at the best of times, but goddamn that mission was a lot of fun.
