According to the latest statistics, the Battlefield 1 trailer is now the highest rated video on YouTube with a staggering 1.3 million upvotes.
Amongst video games, TV, and movies, the Battlefield 1 trailer currently sits as top-rated trailer on YouTube, with 26 million views, 1.3 million upvotes, and only 24,000 downvotes.
The trailer has been more warmly received by YouTube viewers than several significant Hollywood blockbusters including Captain America: Civil War, which only received 348,000 upvotes despite its 55 million views. Naturally, it’s also far above the trailer for the new all-female Ghostbusters movie, which has the dubious distinction of being the most hatred trailer in YouTube’s history.
Unlike Battlefield 1, the trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has received a cold reception, garnering a staggering 1.8 million downvotes after a fan-led campaign encouraged gamers to express their discontent with the game’s futuristic, sci-fi setting, which represented a departure from previous titles.
Activision, the game’s developer was forced to address the issue in their most recent financial earnings call after an investor expressed concerns about the fan’s overwhelming dissatisfaction with decisions made about their upcoming release. Unlike the defenders of the new Ghostbusters movie, accusing critics of misogyny and anti-feminism clearly wasn’t an option.
The upcoming Call of Duty release is now the fourth most disliked video in the history of YouTube, only trailing behind a Justin Beiber music video and Rebecca Black’s music video for the song, “Friday.”
Both games are slated for a fall 2016 release, with Battlefield 1 scheduled to debut on October 21, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on November 4.
