The new trailer released as part of their TGS live stream, which cuts together a further in-depth look at the gameplay we can expect from Metal Gear Survive. However things have not gone over well.
At the time of writing this the “thumbs up” to “thumbs down” ratio is sitting at 1000 “likes” to 15,000 “Dislikes.” Unlike Activision’s similar issue with the first Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer, this one seems to dive deeper. Activision had noted that even though their trailer was heavily disliked it still provided insight that a lot of fans are interacting with the game, or that is what they told their investors. For Metal Gear Survive the video has close to 500k views, which means a majority of the audience hasn’t even bothered to vote.
Activision also followed up with several great trailers for Call of Duty Infinite Warfare that were heavily liked. That number slowly changed to positive “likes” and it even changed some of our staff’s opinion on the game.
Yet when you tie in Kojima in any way even that isn’t looking good. When interviewed by IGN Kojima flat out denied he had any involvement at any point with Metal Gear Survive. In fact his overall statement is exactly what most fans of the series are thinking.
“The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage,” he continued. “Where do zombies fit in with that?”
In fact he brings up an even more interesting idea of switching out the zombies with mechs of some sort.
