Call of Duty: Vietnam

From the internets... I'm guessing its based on the COD4 platform.

----------------------------------------------------------

A source for Computer and Videogames has confirmed that the seventh game in the Call of Duty series of games will be coming this November to the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 and will be set in Vietnam War during the late 1960s.

Unlike World War II and modern settings, the Vietnam War setting has not been a particular successful setting for games whether it be because of the political and cultural distaste for the war or because the games weren't particularly well made to begin with. The Call of Duty series has not been one to flinch away from controversy though whether it be the violence in World at War or the infamous "No Russian" level from Modern Warfare 2. So maybe drawing inspiration from the movies Platoon and Apocalypse Now will be fitting for this game in the Call of Duty series.


Treyarch, who also developed Call of Duty 3 and Call of Duty: World at War, says it is on track for a November release and Activision surely feels confident after Modern Warfare 2's domination of the Holiday 2009 sales charts and World at War still among the most played games on Xbox Live. World at War provided Treyarch with experience in developing jungle environments for gamers to play in so it should be interesting to see how they can improve on it for Call of Duty: Vietnam.

Like the article said they have experience designing and developing jungle environments from WAW. I would be curious how they would make it seem like your not playing WAW.

I have thought that from the second I played those single player missions on WAW, "How would a COD Vietnam be different than this?".

I assumed they were heading this direction as everything else seems to have been done, and it would be good for someone to do a good new Vietnam game that rocks.

My only hope is they have some SEAL beginnings style missions. I would expect alot of tunnels, jungle, and rice patties. Alot of green everywhere.

I would hope they would put TET in there with the Embassy raid by Viet Cong.

Oh oh oh, they have to put Carlos Hathcock in there as your guide on a sniper mission.

So theres the plot, 2010 Copyright Wally

It's actually expected to happen.

There is now a 3rd party involved in the CoD series



Having two teams dedicated to annual output of Activision's Call of Duty franchise may not be enough for the publisher. A report from the LA Times says that a third team is now tasked with Call of Duty development duties.

While the news outlet doesn't name the studio responsible for providing gamers with even more of the Call of Duty that they clearly crave, having a third team dedicated to pumping out future iterations could mean any number of things.

One possibility could give current Call of Duty developers Treyarch and Infinity Ward more time to produce entries in the core series, offering them a three year development cycle instead of the two year turnaround time in place now. Another is semi-annual releases, which may be pushing it.

Or, this third team could be focused on a different Call of Duty model. Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has publicly expressed this thoughts on a massively-multiplayer online take on the series. Activision CFO Tom Tippl has also teased "additional online monetization models" for the Call of Duty brand.

Activision already has a handful of other developers working on Call of Duty content, including Nintendo DS developer n-Space, responsible for three portable entries, and multiplayer map specialists Certain Affinity, who helped Treyarch out with Call of Duty: World At War. The publisher owns plenty of other studios with first-person shooter experience, like Raven Software (Wolfenstein, Singularity) and High Moon Studios (Darkwatch), should it choose to tap one of its wholly-owned developers.

Or perhaps Activision has its newest studio, the recently announced Sledgehammer Games at work on a Call of Duty title. The ex-Dead Space developers could take the franchise in a more futuristic direction, if they dare.

We've reached out to Activision to see if they'd like to comment on the LA Times report, but have not yet heard back.
