It’s official — many disapprove of Activision’s upcoming first-person shooter, “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.” The strong sense of aversion is very evident in the amount of dislikes its YouTube-uploaded trailer received days prior its official release.
As of writing, the “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” trailer has over 3.3 million dislikes, which is absolutely overpowering the less than 600k likes it accumulated. The game’s trailer is the second video to receive the most dislikes on YouTube. It is almost halfway through Justin Bieber’s “Baby's” record with a whopping 6.9 million dislikes.
Ever since Activision released the trailer for the game back in May, many quickly jumped in to voice out their disgust for the upcoming “Call of Duty” title. The Guardian reported at the time that the reasons why the gaming community loathe “Infinite Warfare” includes its futuristic approach instead of the return to the Second World War drama the franchise’s fans love.
Activision did respond to the negative reaction of the gaming community toward its new game. CEO Eric Hirshberg said that they want to bring an innovative experience to players through this new approach and that for players who prefer the traditional gameplay, there’s the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered,” as reported by Gamerant.
Just a few more days and “Infinite Warfare” will officially arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC, so there is certainly no going back for Activision now. It has already done its part in releasing two multiplayer betas and reaching out to beta testers for feedback.
In a lengthy Reddit post it shared just this Sunday, the company expressed its gratitude toward players who took the time to join the beta testing. Also highlighted in the said post are the changes they made to the weapons, modes, perks and many more ahead of the game’s Nov. 4 release. These changes are expected to be part of the day one patch for the game.
For players who are already pumped up to experience what “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” has to offer, the download size of the game has already been revealed. As opposed to the rumored 100GB size, GearNuke has found out that the real download size of the game is 47.94GB, making it just as big as “Battlefield 1.”
On the other hand, “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered” — only available in digital form — is clocking in at 39.94GB. Players who have preordered the “Deluxe Edition” or the “Legacy Edition” will have to make room for the 87.88GB download size of the two titles on their hard disk
