Needless to say, people have already known from day one that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" will arrive. However, when Activision released its first ever reveal trailer, the fans did not expect it to be bad. From unacceptable comments to more than 2 million dislikes, there is no doubt that the game's video has become one of the most hated in YouTube. So why do fans really hate it?
The upcoming game, unlike its predecessors, focuses on a futuristic setting. It is safe to say that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is packed with plenty of sci-fi components as far as the whole series is concerned. But so far, what fans do really know is that this game will suck. But why?
According to SegmentNext, "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" seems to feature movements that are quite similar to the likes of "Destiny" and "Halo." Meanwhile, there are those who see it as a complete rip-off of "Battlefield 1," which is EA DICE's forthcoming game.
If only Activision took an effort to consider the tons of feedback from its community, then the outcome might be different from what it is today. In fact, this seemingly constant failure has since stained the studio's reputation, and it is only with the "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" trailer that everything seems to add up.
Simply put, Activision's decision to continuously reject the community has finally taken its toll. Sadly, the publisher seems not to care. After all, it is still making enough money -- enough to gain resources in making yet another video game.
"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is expected to hit the shelves come Nov. 4. And, as reported by PCGamesN, its release date is not even cooked for being a massive Christmas hit. Nonetheless, the game is said to be available in varied versions, with the Legacy and Standard editions, being the two major packages.
If "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" indeed turns out to be a huge fail in the end, it is about time that Activision takes its boy pants on. The entertainment company should realize by now that there are plenty of games, except its own, out there that fans might deem worth spending on.
