I said this in another thread...WW2, why always WW2. Are companies that afraid to do something new? Who not try Vietnam or something else?
Cause making a game where the US is a violent aggressor dropping chemical weapons on their under equipped enemies and raping and pillaging their ways through villages probably won't sell as well in the US:

While I'd love a Vietnam CoD (campaign could be great if they took cues from all the Vietnam movies out there), I think the main reason is because WWII is a global theater so you can get some pretty good variety in areas/scenarios. Vietnam would look pretty samey.

It's a different studio, but they did do Advanced Warfare which was great.
Oh I know! It's just that I skipped AW and (thankfully) BO3 so the last CoD game I played was Infinite Warfare. I have faith in Sledgehammer after the idea that Infinite Warfare was going to suck according to GAF was proven wrong. I enjoyed IW so I'm super hyped for my first Sledgehammer game.

Very cool they are going back to their roots, I may go back and play the first couple of games again to get me in the mood.

1, UO and 2 are so damn good. Hope these devs can capture what IW and Gray Matter did so well.

We don't even know what it looks like, so what kinda comment is this?
I mean it's going to be the same engine Infinite Warfare was on and I don't see how the Switch could run Infinite Warfare.

Not saying a Switch version is impossible but it's extremely unlikely. If Switch keeps selling great then in say another year or 2 I could see them optimizing / changing the engine in order to make Switch versions

I expect this as the opening mission.

This scene again... LOL. It will be interesting to see whether they go with the rehash of popular WWII scenes, let's do the same scene but from a supporting troop's PoV, OR, the ever popular, hey, here's another battle you didn't know about trope.

Ah well, first year since the first Modern Warfare that I'm skipping. Hopefully back to modern next year!
As excited for this as I am, I do hope the next one is current/modern. I also hope they stay the hell away from future, though. Let other FPS games have that.

I wish they'd go back to the pace of CoD 2 for mp, though I doubt it.

It was so much more fun (to me) like that, everything wasn't nearly as fast and it wasn't about killstreaks/over the top things.

No i think its because America lost Vietnam is why its a rare breed

This might actually bring me back to CoD. I couldn't stand the futuristic style of the newer games. I really gave advanced warfare a try but with the horrible lag and poor performance at PS4 launch it put a real bad taste in my mouth.

Hopefully they correct alot of the problems because I'd love to play this with my friends.

I hate the name, honestly. It feels like they think we're stupid.
I dunno, people are pretty ignorant and oblivious to the past beyond the tag WW2 which they must realise is Saving Private Ryan at least.
