Rumor: Call of Duty 5 Will Be Set in Japan?
It was re-confirmed earlier today that, yes, Treyarch and Infinity Ward would continue to trade off on developing games for the Call of Duty franchise. And unfortunately, yes, that does mean the next Call of Duty game will be taking us back to *groan* World War II. On the plus side though, at least Treyarch is looking to shake up the game a little bit with its setting. Rumor is now suggesting that Call of Duty 5 will actually take place in Japan. It is also suspected that the game will put players in the shoes of Japanese soldiers, rather than their Western counterparts. Details are of course sketchy about what sort of battles will be recreated, but I’d bet you’ll be taking a trip to Iwo Jima at some point. And I’d bet the game will somehow still be a lesser version of Call of Duty 2.
