VG247: Call of Duty 5 has been confirmed as being called Call of Duty: World at War and is set in the Pacific theatre of WWII. The news comes from subs issues of UK mag gamesTM, which landed this morning.
IMO, that's a real shame. Been there, done that, not buying.
Again? O c'mon!
World f'n war two AGAIN.....How dull.
Pity COD4 was the first in the series I liked. Far too many online glitches and problems though.
a pass for me. I have played more WWII shooters than I care to remember and I don't need to add to more clutter to my memory.
Yeah, that last WWII shooter set in the Pacific theatre sucked. What was it again? Oh. Right. MOH - Pacific Assault. Well, that was an okay game. But it was too recent for me to care about a new game with a mediocre (COD4) engine. What was it? 4 years ago? Too recent. And what was that other game set in the Pacific? Oh! Right! Battlefield 1942 had a couple of Pacific maps! And BF1942 sucked, everyone who has ever played PC shooters knows that the BF series did nothing for the FPS genre. Please. 4kmx4km maps? Fully-pilotable vehicles from aircraft carriers to jeeps? WHATEVER! Yeah. Too many games set in the Pacific theatre. I'll still be buying it.
If you want to bash CoD 5 fine, go ahead but leave BF 1942 and the BF series out of it. The BF 1942 didn't do anything for the FPS genre? STFU, you have no clue.
I think that you need to read what I wrote again. Especially the bit about vehicles and 4kmx4km maps. If that doesn't work, I can't help you. Hint: Read it without the kneejerk.
If it uses the COD4 engine it shouldn't be too bad right? I mean we play for the gameplay don't we? Right?...right?
Wrong it might have the same engine but not the same developer there is a big difference as far as game making skills between treyarch and infinity ward. Infinity ward one of the best developers out there well treyarch are just amateur using call of duty engines that Infinity ward build and they just tweaks it and call it their own.
Looks like I'll be waiting for CoD6 when Infinity Ward takes back over. In all honesty I can't stand Treyarch. They don't do the series justice. Also the WWII thing is getting played out. Treyarch is just trying to cash in once again like they did with CoD3.
WW II again? Sigh. I think I'll pass with this one. We'll have resistance 2 and killzone 2 by then right?
The only recent competition this game has is History Channel: Battle for the Pacific! I use the term 'competition' loosly
If I'm disappointed, it's not the fact that CoD is going back to WW2. I think that's where it belongs in the first place. CoD4 was great, but face it, it was a one-time thing. If CoD keeps going with the modern warfare setting, it'll just lose its novelty and risk becoming just another modern military shooter, and we've got plenty of good ones already (RS:Vegas, GRAW). However, WW2 in the Pacific hasn't been done that often before, and it has NEVER been done well. Treyarch didn't pick a terrible setting. But something tells me they haven't got many ideas on how to change up the gameplay and make it new and interesting. Maybe its the addition of coop and vehicles which every other shooter has right now. Or maybe it's the ridiculously-generic title, World at War :/
CoD 3 multiplayer sucks too. It as too arcade.
COD4 multiplayer is too arcadey. Why?
what is wornge with cod 3? it was a pretty good game...y so much hate for trayarch
you don't have to buy the game if you don't want to. i will be buying it because i liked cod3 (multiplayer, singleplayer was too flawed)
we gotta moan about something, now don't we!?
Brother's in Arms "Hells Highway" should be a good game. I might get that one but not another COD WWII.
ill give it the benefit of the doubt though, jeez i learn more about WW2 through videogames than I did in history class, we need more modern day shooters RS vegas didnt do it justice and GRAW is more futuristic in a sense, But this Battlefield: Bad Company is starting to look nice i might just get it gameplay reason, everything is really destructible.
What happened to the huge success of COD4? i thought they'd learn from that.. I thought i even read somewhere that WW2 games were overdone and needed to move in a new direction. My interest went from 100% to about 5%... WW2 again? common..
What happened is Treyarch is making this game not Infinity Ward. Insomniac will be making CoD6, which I am waiting for now. They switch developers every other. Infinity Ward gets the even numbers, Treyarch gets the odds.
lol BigPete. It's Infinity Ward, not Insomniac.
You mean infinity Ward, right? Edit: Damn you mistertwoturbo :(
Lol yeah Infinity Ward. Sorry for the mistake. I even said Infinty Ward in my first post. It's too damn early.
yeah WW2 is way over done. unless there is a drought of other games at the time i think COD5 is a pass. any news on COD6 though?
GET SLAUGHTERED IF IT COMES OUT IN NOVEMBER
i'll wait for the next infinity ward game, thnx.
somebody kill this stupid company let infinity ward handle it
