It’s no secret by now that the reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was met with a rather not-so-good response. While this is to be expected for almost every Call of Duty title since the franchise is the everyone loves to hate (but keeps on buying them anyway), the amount of dislikes Infinite Warfare had was a bit on the extreme side.
In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle set to hit the site soon, we asked Infinity Ward Multiplayer Project Director Jordan Hirsch on the studio’s reaction regarding the backlash and whether it will influence the studio at all moving forward.
PSLS: When your initial trailer went live, the initial response seemed kind of mixed. What’s your stance on social media’s reaction to your trailer? Will that influence any of your games going forward?
Jordan Hirsch: Response has been sort of mixed with the first one, we have really passionate fans. I’m confident that we have a really good game, and I think people are going to love it when they try it. In terms of changing games going forward, I think we’ll pay close attention to the trailers that we’re releasing, and make sure that everything that we put out there is super exciting.
