COD: Infinite Warfare Box Art Change

So there has no doubt been a lot of controversy since the first official trailer was released for the latest Call of Duty game titled Infinite Warfare. If you haven’t seen that trailer or want a reminder of what all the controversy was about then you can watch it by clicking here. Basically people were calling it a Halo rip off and were angry because it strayed too far away from what fans love about Call of Duty. Well someone over at Activision must have been paying attention because the spacey box art has been officially changed.

The official Call of Duty website updated today and gone is the old art featuring a space pilot holding his helmet and now we see a soldier looking a lot more like Spectre from Black Ops III. Besides the character change, the most noticeable differences is that the spaceship is a lot less prominent, more soldiers  have been added, and the gun looks a lot more like a modern day weapon. We can only assume that these changes were made in response to the terrible back lash that fans unleashed after the release of the Infinite Warfare trailer.

Only time will tell what Infinite Warfare will bring to Call of Duty fans. One thing is for sure, we will be seeing more footage this weekend when E3 takes over the Los Angeles Convention Center.
