On May 2, 2016, the Call of Duty official YouTube channel released its Infinite Warfare trailer. And it did no go over well. The trailer has gotten more dislikes than any other video on the channel. But if that wasn’t enough, other developers took to Twitter to rag on it.
Employees over at DICE, the developer behind Battlefield, tweeted some unflattering comments about the new trailer. Roland Smedberg, their Media & Video Editor, called the trailer “quaint”. He later criticized the poor lighting, and promised the Internet that they’d be much more impressed come 4pm on May 6, when DICE is releasing Battlefield 5.
Roland criticized COD’s poor use of depth of field and poor lighting
Randy Evans, Senior Video & Media Director of DICE criticized CoD’s new trailer as well
Last but not least, Roland promised that the Internet will be impressed by Battlefield 5’s graphic at its release
At the moment, Infinite Warfare‘s trailer is ranked 35th in most disliked videos on YouTube, putting it among music videos from pop stars like Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Psy, and Rebecca Black. At the moment, this trailer has more than 391 thousand dislikes — and it’s still increasing.
Infinite Warfare will be released on November 4, 2016, and players can pre-order the game at Call of Duty‘s official page. When Battlefield 5 releases its teaser today, players will undoubtedly be comparing its graphics to what’s teased in the CoD trailer.
