Report: Call Of Duty: Vietnam A Reality
For a while now, we've all assumed that Treyarch's new Call of Duty, set to launch later this year, would be the first CoD based in Vietnam. But now, we have more concrete evidence that this is indeed a fact.
According to a very plain announcement at VentureBeat, Call of Duty: Vietnam is a reality, and it should be revealed on SpikeTV on Friday night. All of these whispers and rumors about a Vietnam-based CoD began a couple years ago, when we learned that Activision was looking to license Vietnam War-era music for what has only been known as "Call of Duty 7." They tossed a little wrench into the works when we learned about another CoD installment in the works at Sledgehammer, which is rumored to be in a fresh third-person perspective. Some were thinking that would be the one based in Vietnam, but it appears it's Treyarch's project that will play host to the war that helped spark a societal revolution in the late '60s. Some believe the setting is a little too sensitive but that's an argument that could last forever. We're willing to admit that World War II veterans would've felt the same way about all these WWII shooters had they been younger when the video game boom hit.
Well, it was bound to happen. The question is, will gamers respond to the new war for CoD? People didn't think they would when the series went "Modern" but look what happened...
