Dr Disrespect claims “marketing is saving Call of Duty” in response to MW2
Dr Disrespect a.k.a. Guy Beahm had some critical comments in response to the recent Modern Warfare 2 reveal, suggesting that Call of Duty doesn’t live up to the marketing.
Dr Disrespect is not only known for their successful streaming career, but also for their work as a map designer on previous Call of Duty games such as Advanced Warfare.
With Modern Warfare 2 set to come out, the devs officially revealed the first batch of artwork for the next installment of the Call of Duty franchise. Of course, Dr Disrespect reacted to the new art, which prompted an opinion on CoD’s product and marketing.
On May 24, players were given their first glimpse of Modern Warfare 2 with some new artwork depicting the main characters. We also got an official release date, leaks surrounding a beta, and more.
This has obviously caused excitement among the Call of Duty community, especially as the game is also supposed to be bringing Warzone 2.
Dr Disrespect hasn’t been too happy with the direction of Call of Duty recently, especially when it comes to Warzone’s Calderas map. As well as offering advice to the devs of Warzone 2, the 2x Champion gave his opinion on Call of Duty’s marketing.
In response to the new Modern Warfare 2 reveal and artwork, the Doc said, “there ain’t nothin’! It’s getting to the point where like marketing is saving Call of Duty. Isn’t it crazy to think that?”
The streamer then goes on to insinuate that the product doesn’t live up to the marketing, “like the actual product isn’t…like its the marketing of it.”
Dr Disrespect slightly stumbles over his words, but it seems he’s suggesting that Call of Duty focuses more on the marketing of their games rather than the product.
We know Dr Disrespect isn’t the happiest with the franchise and FPS genre in general, even creating his own development studio and game to bring the changes and experience he’d like.
