The official Call of Duty Twitter confirms that fans should expect to see an in-depth look at the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare campaign in a few weeks at E3.
The annual trade show event E3 2016, is now a mere few weeks away and companies are putting the final touches on reveals, information, and new trailers intended to excite fans. Even though Activision won’t have an official booth at E3 2016 this year, don’t expect the highly anticipated shooter Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare to skip the show. As expected, the game is planning to reveal its campaign in an extended gameplay demo in a few weeks at the annual show.
The confirmation comes directly from the official Call of Duty Twitter page where they revealed that campaign footage was being readied for the first official day of E3 2016 on June 13. An in-depth look is promised at the game, revealing more about Captain Reyes and his ship the Retribution, which is one of Earth’s last remaining warships. The on stage demo should give fans a good idea as to what sort of gameplay to expect from the game once it launches later this year.
While Activision didn’t confirm where the footage would be shown, it’s safe to say that the game will follow in the footsteps of previous entries and receive amply stage time for the first party company that the franchise has a deal with. In this case, the most likely scenario will be that the gameplay debuts on stage with Sony, as timed exclusive rights moved to them last year with Call of Duty: Black Ops III. As expected, this also means that PlayStation 4 fans can again expect downloadable content first on their console, followed 30 days later by the other platforms.
It’s been an interesting ride for Infinite Warfare so far since its initial debut trailer arrived a little over a month ago. The reveal was met with more more hostility and hate than what either Infinity Ward and Activision were anticipating, as the trailer on YouTube alone has received an astounding amount of dislikes.
Interestingly enough, the hate wasn’t coming solely from fans alone as some developers at DICE also took to social media to slam the game. The Tweets in question were quickly removed and a lengthy apology was put in their place by one of the developers. All of the negativity surround the game hasn’t slowed Activision however, as the company has faced similar behavior before and recently explained it away to investors on an earnings call.
Are you excited to see gameplay footage or are you more or less done with the series for now? Sound off in the comments below.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is due out on November 4, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
