This year’s iteration is about to overtake Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda as the most hated trailer on YouTube
It has been exactly one week since Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) released the debut trailer for this year’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare installment. Between frustration for the unavailability of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone purchase and the recent announcement of Battlefield 1 by Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA), there has been a great surge in the amount of dislikes for Infinity Ward’s upcoming game.
At the time of writing, the Infinite Warfare’s YouTube trailer has amassed over 13 million (13,253,251) views, out of which more than 1 million (1,083,008) are dislikes. This puts Infinite Warfare’s preview as the eighth most hated trailer on YouTube, just behind Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda, which currently has 1,159,337 dislikes. At the current rate, it will just take another day (or two) for Infinite Warfare to cross that abysmal showcasing of music, as well as Miley Cyrus’s We Can’t Stop (1,240,353 dislikes), to land in the list of the top five most hated/disliked videos on the global video-sharing platform.
Infinity Ward has its work cut out since the most disliked video on the planet, as of now, is Justin Bieber’s Baby with over 6 million dislikes. The developer, though, is hardly fazed and is confident that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is going to sell a lot of copies, despite the current public display of scorn.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is scheduled for a release on November 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game’s special editions are going to come bundled with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
