A recent report from ThatVideoGameBlog has sparked the rumor that the inevitable 7th Call Of Duty game will be traveling past World War 2 (about time!) and to a much more… relaxed time in a not-so-relaxed place.
TVGB reported that, ”’A source we consider reliable”, has told them that Activision is looking to get the licenses for music from the Vietnam era, Soviet Union, African and Cuban music. It has also been reported that Noah Heller (senior producer) who was heavily involved in the tension between the two studios (Treyarch and Infinity Ward) will be working on the game.
Heller was quoted last year saying,
”I’m sure game companies will be making World War II games for years to come and World War II is a very classic war. But we’re happy that we put the war to bed.”
So, Modern Warfare 2 will be releasing later this year and CoD 7 will be on the tail end of that. Right now its anyone’s guess when the swapping of the license will finally rest in the hands of only one team. We can be sure however, that there is definitely time enough for both studios to go at each other once again.
