Call Of Duty Leaves WWII Behind
Wait...how can we possibly imagine Call of Duty without World War II? The two go together like peanut butter and jelly, like politicians and prostitutes; CoD is WWII! Ah, but Activision has a big change in store for fans of the revered franchise, and yes, you guessed it: they're moving beyond the famous world war.
According to IGN, the next installment in the series - yet to be officially unveiled - is scheduled to make its first appearance during the televised NFL Draft on ESPN this Saturday. And it's called Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, which means WWII is out and a modern setting (perhaps like the one we see in the likes of Ghost Recon) is in. Not much is known about the game at this time, but Treyarch has apparently been working on this next-gen CoD since their development time for Call of Duty 3.
Platforms for the game aren't officially announced, either, but IGN confirmed in February that Activision is looking at the PS3 and Xbox 360 for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. If you want a sneak peak, tune into the NFL Draft, which begins at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on Saturday.
