Infinity Ward, the developer of upcoming military shooter video game "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare," has been facing a lot of flak for setting another one of its games in futuristic, science-fiction setting.
Fans wanted Activision, the game publisher, to focus on making a realistic military game and not something that is similar to "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3."
Taylor Kurosaki, the narrative director at Infinity Ward, spoke to Forbes about the upcoming game where he has claimed that it will be "most realistic." He said, "We are telling the most realistic, plausible near-future story of war."
He further supported the focus on science fiction by saying, "Space is the next frontier and its militarization is inevitable."
The developer was interested to explore part of space exploration and assured fans that it was not making a "sci-fi game," he said extending the reach to space opens new opportunities for game.
"To be clear, we aren't developing a science fiction or sci-fi game. Infinite Warfare is first and foremost a Call of Duty game, which means visceral infantry combat as well as piloting vehicles," Forbes quoted him as saying.
The game's trailer faced a mass "dislike," with nearly 2.29 million people disliking it out of the total 22 million views it received.
"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" will have chain-based fluid movement system, similar to "Black Ops 3," assured a Twitter post from the developer.
Gaming blog Dexerto reported that the "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" trailer is the second most disliked video after Justin Bieber's "Baby" song video on YouTube, which currently has 6.14 million dislikes.
"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" is expected to be released on Nov. 4 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
