CoD is becoming like all sporting games. It's an annualized game, that thrives on the competive nature of its players, and only changes minor aspects each year. If they actually think setting the game in 2025 makes it new, they clearly lack imagination.

It's a solid formula that sells incredibly well. No way on Earth are they going to make any revolutionary changes to this series.
At least not until people stop buying it the way it is.
