Even though computer gamers are still a bit disappointed by the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, we must admit that this franchise is one of the biggest in the world so every new release should be expected with anticipation and hope that it will finally be done right for the computer game fans!
We’ll have a chance to change our mind regarding the Call of Duty franchise this November when, according to CVG, a new Call of Duty game developed by TreyArch will be released.
“It’s going to be November again – just as with World At War and Modern Warfare 2,” a source told the website. “Activision believes that it can own Christmas 2010, just as it has in the last two years. Development is on course – and Treyarch have been told the game must be ready to hit shelves before the gifting season.”
The next game in the Call of Duty franchise (the seventh in the series) will be set in the late 1960s, during the Vietnam war. According to early reports, the FPS will take influence from movies like Apocalypse Now and Platoon, which sounds quite nice. We’re waiting for more official details quite soon – and hopefully some great news for PC gamers.
As you probably know, the development of the Call of Duty games is handled by two different companies: Infinity Ward, the ones responsible for the “Modern Warfare” series and Treyarch, the ones responsible for the “classic” games. There’s just one game released per year, therefore giving each company two years to work on the next game. Pretty smart!
