Well it looks like we are taking a big step backwards from Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare to WWII yet again with Call of Duty 5 World War.
Multiple online reports sourcing July issues of Official Xbox Magazine and Games(TM) reveal that Call of Duty 5 will be called World at War and return to 1940s fascism.
According to the upcoming issues, Call of Duty 5 will now be known as Call of Duty: World at War. The shooter is being developed by Treyarch, the team responsible for Call of Duty 3, and is built using the impressive Call of Duty 4 game engine.
Though unofficial, the reports confirm that World at War will return to the oft-used WWII setting (this time in the Pacific), and that 2-4 person online co-op will be supported. Additionally, 16-person online multiplayer using the same level-up (aka Perk) system found in Call of Duty 4 will return.
According to Treyarch, World at War will be the “darkest” Call of Duty yet. The Xbox 360 is the lead development platform, and the Wii version is said to look much closer to Call of Duty 4 than one would believe, in addition to supporting the Zapper peripheral.
Call of Duty: World at War is scheduled for release this fall for Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, DS, PS2, and PC. Infinity Ward, the developer behind Call of Duty 4, has reportedly begun working on Call of Duty 6. The conflict continues…
When I say backwards I mean in time not in technology by any means, but what about the PSP. CoD 5 is rumored to be for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PC the Wii and DS. This looks like it will shape up to be a good game with the 2-4 person co-op and the “perk” system the same, lets see if taking the trip back to the future will be worth it.
