Every year I look forward to the multiplayer reveal of Call of Duty games. I don’t know why I do. I’m not a huge Call of Duty fan. In fact, I would consider myself a fan of Treyarch’s efforts and that’s about it. Infinity Ward hasn’t been the same since they sent this franchise into a storm of killstreaks and air support.
This trailer doesn’t do the game many favors. Unlike with Battlefield 4, it’s not immediately evident that this is a next generation title. They also fail to give context to many of the game’s new features. Speaking with my brother who watched the “event”, it sounds like Infinity Ward is building upon what Black Ops 2 established.
“Does this game feature Gun Game?”
That is the most important question. It’s not going to stop me from picking it up but it will determine how long I hold onto it. I was very close to passing on it until Treyarch’s year but I thought to myself: I’ve purchased all the Call of Duty titles thus far, why stop now?
