YouTube users have been flooding the reveal trailer for Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and got more than 1,137,000 dislikes and there is a campaign going on at the moment so it is probably going to get a lot higher.
As one gamer moaned: "gamers and community has had enough of this futuristic Bullshit and most of all the approach that Activision has. They screw their customers and all they care about is MONEY.. It has to stop."
And Activision’s aware of it, an analyst asked Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg about the dislikes and he said that the reveal trailer for Black Ops II, 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, of course, went on to become our most successful game ever.”
Here’s the full statement:
“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 is going to deliver that. And the good news is this year we found a way to deliver both in one package while keeping our community together.
“And 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 that you referred to are up and in fact the number of likes per view on the Infinite Warfare reveal trailer are also the highest we’ve ever seen.
“We’ve seen this in the franchise before. The reveal trailer for Black Ops II, 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, of course, went on to become our most successful game ever.”
