Why are people hating on the COD: Infinite Warfare trailer?

If you haven’t seen Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s latest trailer, go ahead and watch it now.

If you HAVE seen it, you’ve probably already seen the comments. And the thumbs down.

Just to compare, here are the approval ratings for Battlefield 1’s gameplay trailer.

Now, I’m not going to say that one game is better than the other. But what I WILL say, is that before the game has even come out, it looks like Infinity Ward, who has traditionally developed the better games in the Call of Duty universe, has their work cut out for them just to make people believe in the franchise again. YouTube commenters, who aren’t known for their restraint and poise on the best of days, are leaving comments from ‘it looks just like Halo mashed together with TitanFall’ to ‘Looks so boring and generic.’ to ‘Remember the thing you hated the most from CoD Ghosts? Well, here it is! AND IN ROBOT FORM!

I’m just hoping that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is another of those games that had a terrible trailer, but turned out to be awesome.

And lastly, a bit of bad news/good news. The bad news - with what is looking more and more like par for the course, the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare multiplayer beta will be available next month, but only for PlayStation 4. PC gamers? Will just have to wait. The good news, of course, is that as soon as it’s out for PCs, you can play Infinite Warfare on your mobile as well :)
