Rumor: Next Call of Duty Set in WW2

A tweet from a user named Victor___Z says that the next Call of Duty game will be set during World War II, and suggests it's being developed by Sledghammer. This is just an unconfirmed rumor, but Charlie INTEL vouches for the poster's bona fides, saying: "However, the leak, Victor_Z has known to accurately leak information in gaming, including Call of Duty. He accurately stated that the Black Ops Cold War reveal trailer back in August would include a 10 second MP preview, amongst other information he has shared in the past."

Good. Back in the early Medal of Honor/CoD/Battlefield days everyone bitched about how tired WWII as a setting was getting, as we'd seen nothing else in three years.

Instead we got 15 years of 'modern.'

Do you not play video games? Because I'm pretty sure BF1 and BF5 gave us nothing but ww2 for the last 5 years.

Battlefield 1 was set in WW1, dude.
And it sucked

I don't play cods anymore, no matter what they all look and play like the Michael Bay of video games, but that's not say there isn't a market for that. But really it's not like they have a huge swath of 'huge' real modernish tech wars to choose from.

Why did the CCP not like China Rising? I always thought Dice gave a pretty fair shake to the Chinese.

They accused it of demonising the image of China in a new form of cultural aggression, as well as discrediting China's image abroad and distorting the truth in an effort to mislead young people.

Yeah, a shame we can't have that. Dice and EA are going to shy away from anything "controversial" which means the only "good" bad guys are Nazis, and made up ones. That said, there's Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.

That's MP only and I can't stand multiplayer.

So are the BF and CoD games, except for some brief SP campaigns. I liked the CoD campaigns back in the day, but recently tried playing through the Infinite campaign, and just found it boring.

It's only been four years since Call Of Duty: WWII and Sniper Elite 4 and only three years since Battlefield V. I thought it was really bold for them to go with the Cold War setting in the recent game, especially the detail used to model a former president. The reviews have apparently been middling but at least it was something different.

Same here, but everybody/everything has to be so politically correct nowadays. Publishers are afraid to offend other countries, and this goes back YEARS. If you recall they had to rename the Taliban to "Opposition" in Medal of Honor 2010. More recently, BF4 was banned in China due to the China Rising DLC.

Yes, the skins were WW1, but all the weapons and vehicles behaved as if from WW2, because "gameplay."

There was some "future" in there as well.

They definitely dont have the ballz to do anything will upset the thin skin China Chinese. So they won't do Vietnam or Korean war. And sure not something like BF4 with the modern Chinese PLA. So Nazi and zombies are always the default bad guys.

Honestly at this point, I rather EA/Take2/Activision/UBISoft copy what Namco did for decade with their Ace Combat world settings. FAKE COUNTRIES conflict with real modern (or old) world weapons. This way the game can have MUCH MORE creative FREEDOM (without upset any thin skin country). Forget try to be realistic of the "setting" (because it never will), instead be realistic of the weapon/vehicle physics.

Two of those wars/conflicts are still ongoing. I doubt any company wants to touch the Russo-Ukrainian War (Crimean situation) or the Syrian Civil War as long as people are still out there fighting and dying. That's not about being politically correct, it's about being decent human beings and not gamifying a situation that is still destroying lives.

Yeah, but in fairness the market was way over saturated with WWII games at that point in time.
