The release should please fans of the series dismayed by the HD remaster of Modern Warfare IV being limited to those who pre-order the forthcoming Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare title.

The 2016 release is currently taking flak from fans of the series, who’ve made it one of the most disliked trailers on YouTube.
