New COD game have been confirmed!

Post by thl » Sun Jan 10, 2010 8:27 pm

It's believed that the next COD game (developed by Treyarch) will take place in the Vietnam War:

Hope this one to be a big improvement to Call of Duty: World at War. Will keep up to date when further news comes in.

Hmm. Vietnam war? Could be interesting. I'm not a fan of the Treyarch COD games to be honest; as single player games they are alright (although always slightly less cerebral than the IW games), but multiplayer has always been a little less compulsive. I haven't played a good vietnam game since...errr... I dont think I ever have, so could be good!

I heard about this Vietnam setting not so long ago and im not too convinced by it. I think it'll be hard to produce a varied game that is predominantly guerilla warefare taking place in a jungle.

It could have an awseome soundtrack to it though if they licenced real music from the time.
It’s suggested that the story will focus on the story of individual members of an American platoon during the Vietnam War.
I see this is going to be something like Halo: ODST which would be good if they pull it off better than Bungie did.

Well, they will rewrite history but will be interesting to see Ia Drang as would be a throwback moment. Guard your landing zone as wave after wave comes at you.

Isn't the bigger news that Infinity Ward are moving onto something else and not doing MW3.

YAY! Another Theatre of War that the Americans can utterly sanitise themselves of any responsibility over!
The sad thing is most people will take the game at face value as well, especially the bit where America actually wins at the end.

Treyarch, well WAW was certainly better than thier last offering so should be interesting.

I don't know how varied it's gonna be, but i would imagine there will be plenty of rescuing POWs, rescuing POWs and er, whats that other thing, oh yeah, rescuing POWs :shock: JK

Hueys, lots of Hueys.

Vietcong on the PC was great. It's a shame that the console ports were utter censored.

Then there was of course Men of Valor. It would've been a great game, if the AI wasn't that terrible. Your squadmates always blocked your line of fire and the enemy soldiers could hit you easily, even if you were in cover. Though I have to say, that I enjoyed the atmosphere...

I don't care too much, still enjoying mw2, and halo reach is soon to be released.

Gran turismo 5 will take up my year anyway, and the n64 its too enjoyable.
