Yesterday the internet, being the internet, decided that Activision’s new trailer for their FPS The Walking Dead game was rubbish – full of seemingly in-development segments and poor editing.
Except, well, it wasn’t an Activision trailer at all – it was a fan edit of intentionally in-development segments previously hosted on IGN.
It wasn’t even on Activision’s own YouTube channel, but a newly made channel with one video. That one. Here’s the so-called trailer, as it was:

It’s amazing how quickly outlets distributed the ‘trailer’ (and associated vitriol) yesterday, but I guess that’s just the way this industry is these days, right?
Survival Instinct is due in 2013, at which point hopefully it’ll look a lot better than these very early elements. As it’s highly likely to do, of course.
