I feel like World War 2 and modern war games have been done to death.
Yep like how Bungie did Halo to death and then moved on to Destiny. Same needs to be done with CoD really.
And it'd just be the same thing, I'm sure. Some Russian/Chinese/Middle Eastern terrorist or government threatens the world's safety, and it's up to the united States of America to save the world.
I actually liked the twist in Modern Warfare 2, where the power hungry general is revealed as the baddie. Reminds me of the novel Starship Troopers.
Nah, not the same it could be set far enough in the future is is not about earth anymore but some other planet and two different races. Haloish; but not Halo.
It would be interesting to see Treyarch or IW do something completely different. What exactly, I have no idea. Would love to be surprised one year.
Probably too risky for Activision.
World War II is the reason so many franchises are successful. Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, and Battlefield have World War II to thank for millions of dollars. Activision knows this. You can bet your ass with the conclusion of Black Ops 2 (and the World at War storyline) that Activision has 100% at the very least considered Call of Duty 2014 to be a WWII game. Call of Duty: Ghosts is the first IW CoD on next-gen and is a completely new story. It is a surefire thing that Treyarch's first next-gen game will be a game that features a completely new story as well.
Here are some dates of the last WWII video games. It is nearly 2014, keep in mind.
Last Call of Duty WWII game: 2008
Last Medal of Honor WWII game: 2007
Last Battlefield WWII game: 2009 (arcade game)
Last Brothers in Arms WWII game: 2008
Last Battlestrike WWII game: 2008
WWII video games have been beaten senseless the beginning of the decade and as a result a drought occurred. This is yet another reason why Call of Duty 2014 will be set in 2014.
A WWII shooter would be a very refreshing change of pace, and Activision knows this.
I Agree with some of what you were saying but I have played every call of duty made. i like the way they have all turned out however I find that world at war was by far one of the best along with modern warfare 2, I think that they should make a second world at war as looking back now I can see how much I liked tht game although times have moved on and a lot of companys have made a game like that at somepoint I feel that they should make it, I though the black ops games weren't that great. making a second world at war might not be such a bad idea because they are so used to doing more modern styled games now.
Since they seem to have a modern shooter and a futuristic shooter, they could very well make a World At War 2 as it was one of the greatest CoDs ever, and I'm not even a fan of WW2. However, a WW2 game would break in the cycle a bit without having to be yearly or WW2 all the time. It could be every 3 years (CoD is now a 3 year dev cycle). Furthermore, there's no other WW2 game like a CoD WW2 game.
World At War was the first CoD to bring 4 Player Campaign Co-op
World At War used the formula that made CoD4 so successful
World At War brought zombies (I know that has nothing to do with main game, but it's highly popular to this day)
World At War brought bigger maps for bigger fights and it makes more sense to do big fights in the WW2 era. It could be the first and only CoD on consoles since years ago to have more than 12 players and bring the feeling of war (PC benefited from this with 32 players)
World At War brought better graphics for its time and with the newer consoles out, it can really be pushed much further like thunderstorms and rain effects (probably limb dismemberment too). Just don't make the colors yellow and brown only, even if it is for authenticity
World At War could expand on vehicles like CoD United Offensive (PC) or CoD3 (console) the CoD way
World At War was the last CoD with real player dedicated servers
World At War - Bolt-Action Rifles, Tommyguns, Browning, etc.
I was one of those who said WW2 games need to go, but really, it's ok if they're not over saturating the market and everyone is doing them. If I were going to play a WW2 game, it would be a CoD version and it would be similar to Call Of Duty World At War.
