Default Call of Duty 7 to be Vietnam based?

Quote:
While not official, there have been several rumblings about Treyarch’s next installment in the white hot Call of Duty franchise. Specifically, the current rumor is that Treyarch’s Winter 2010 entry into the series will be based around conflicts regarding the Vietnam War..

I hope it is and they better have choppers. The only Vietnam era game that has been good is BF:VT but sadly many over looked it so the community quickly died. I use to play it for hours and damn I felt at home flying those choppers around.

Call of Duty is dying and it doesn't matter if Treyarch are making it or IW.

Thats my opinion anyway. MW2 did so well because of CoD4...none of the next CoD's will be anywhere near as sucessfull.

Bring on BFBC2, BF3 and MoH2010 please.

BF:VT had jungle maps. That's also what was great about that game, the maps were varied. That said, many modders made better maps.

How do did you come to this conclusion COD is dying? Even World at War sold ridiculous amounts and it was actually good despite the hate some showed it just for being a WWII game..

This rumor has been around forever and I do hope it's true, but at the same time I hope they can really do dense jungle properly on current hardware.

CoD is dying because there is better games of the same genre coming our way in 2010. Presumptuous yes...but also confident.

Unfortunately MW2 has been the Steam top seller or near that since it released almost 2 months ago, the player numbers at any one time are astronomical and the game is a huge succeess.

Another game catering more to your niche interests does not mean CoD is dying.

I think that when BFBC2 and MoH2010 are released the 'amount of hours played' on any CoD game on PC will drop dramatically, therefore the death of CoD will begin. It may not be dying yet...but it is terminally ill.

May i ask why it is unfortunate that MW2 is the steam top seller? And may i suggest that media promotions and very expensive advertising along with the CoD name may have had something to do with those sales. It is a success for IW as they have made a lot of money on the CoD name but MW2 is a mediocre FPS at best and imo the most overhyped game of 2009.

Again i only speak of multiplayer...i have no interest in singleplayer rail shooters especially when they have been done before and better.

How can you sit there with an honest face and say the COD series is dying. It is now the biggest selling game (MW2) of all time.

Wishful thinking on his part, lol. I have played BFBC2, and the game sucks.

If you guys really want to talk about an overhyped game, talk about halo. Jesus that game is a piece of ****. Got to be one of the worst FPS games I've ever played. If it weren't for the hype the game would have been completely overlooked.
