Rumours abound that Call of Duty is going back to World War 2. IS it time for the series to return to its roots, or would doing that jeopardize losing the entrenched multiplayer fanbase?
I trust Treyarch, so I can't wait for the next Call of Duty
I'd like to shoot some virtual nazis again, why not. Never really digged those futuristic setups
I'm ready for some bullet on nazi action too.I miss the BAR.
Today's average Call of Duty players won't want to be limited to WW2 weaponry and technology. The reactions especially from the younger fans who probably haven't even played a WW2 shooter before will be absolute comedy gold if they do go back to the WW2 era. Activision probably understands this better than anyone, there is noway they'd take such a gamble, at best they'd integrate the WW2 setting and weapons into whatever modern shooter they have planned.
Yes it is I am tired of this futuristic stuff. I would even take a MW2 remake over a new game.
I was thinking the same thing, maybe a modern warfare collection or something, although I kind of hated MW3. Never been a fan of the World War 2 ones either.
Yes, with guns like No Land Beyond ;)
Yes. I'm so tired of the modern/futuristic military FPS games.
Yes yes yes
Absolutely. There's not much farther they can go into the future before the series starts shaking hands with Halo and Mass Effect, after all – 2057 was about as late into the timeline as you can set a game with a minimal amount of lasers and mech suits. A World War II game might even bring back that kind of difficulty and diverse traversal that the original games did. It's about time for Call of Duty to go back to its roots – it's been long enough and fans are ready for it. The future stuff needs a break until Advanced Warfare 2 rolls around in a few years and the modern stuff's done. Period piece entries were the best of the series, imho. Time for real Nazis this time. Wolfenstein's prepared us for it.
WWI would be a lot better. Bring on the Zepplins.
If it does I am not buying. I like the modern setting, with modern weapons
You had me at Is it time for Call of Duty to go... Id much prefer a new Brothers in Arms, or even Full Spectrum Warrior.
Yea Tommy, before Ze Germans get here.
Modern or past anything else and my money goes elsewhere.
Wow, people are so desperate for a WW2 shooter that they'd go as far as buying a CoD game. There was this game that came out recently, it's called "Enemy Front" or something. It's a WW2 shooter, a mediocre one at best, yet people loved it just because of the setting. If you guys want a game with WW2 elements, try Wolfenstein:TNO. It may not be the most realistic portrayal of WW2, but still way more fun than most bland WW2 shooters
Great old school game
Yes but I want Civil War, WWI, and the Iraq War. Actual recent wars sounds fun. There's no reason to wait an arbitrary amount of time to do so.
Search for "Insurgency" on steam.
It was time a very long time ago, the futuristic call of duty games should've been scraped on the idea table. They're absolutely terrible ideas imo.
No no no!!!!! If it does I would not buy it...need to go back to today's military not all the jump backs n all....just go back to the roots of REAL....
It depends on if there's still a good WWII story to tell. Mp wise it would be great to return.
So first of all we all complained about the saturated WW2 games market, now we're complaining about the saturated sci-fi games market? I guess things have come full circle.
What about WW2 with futuristic weapons? Involving time machines and stuff. Do it now Treyarch.
Would love to see the omaha beach landing like in medal of honor.
No I think they should do modern or future because that is what we are transitioning into. Cod is too fast paced for WWII imo. I would be more open to a WWII Battlefield with the same destruction because it is more of a war simulator than Cod is. Cod is a run and gun shooter and that doesn't really hit WWII's trench style warfare
a truly next gen ww2 game is not a bad idea
I think it's time at least ONE shooter went back to WW era. The market is saturated with modern/futuristic shooters. With today's power we could have a real gritty WW shooter full of cinematic atmosphere and less hand-holding. Give me a darker world with spotlights and fires... trenches and surprise. I've had enough of copy and paste.
Yes I am ready for a great WWII FPS. One with a good long campaign. The mood in those were great and immersive. If not COD, bring back the Medal of Honor series and do it there. Those were great, long campaigns, and harder. In those if you were injured you needed to find and manage health packs. None of this magical auto-heal crap, it was more strategic and there were consequences for playing sloppy.
Yes, I hate the freaking Exo suits. All people do is jump around instead of trying to be tactical.
