Update: CoD5 returns to WWII

dday225.jpgIn a developing update to yesterday’s breaking news concerning upcoming Call of Duty 5, IGN has confirmed that Treyarch will be taking the series back to World War II. This confirmation may disappoint fans of Modern Warfare, but Treyarch assures that they will be taking on WWII from new angles including battles in the Pacific, Russia, etc.. IGN also confirmed that Treyarch has had full development time with the project since Call of Duty 3 (2006), and are utilizing the CoD4 engine to the fullest. The project has also been given a new title…Call of Duty: World at War.

More news on the Co-op front reveals that Call of Duty: World at War supports 4 players, but has yet to be confirmed for the Wii version. A DS version has been announced as well.

Are you disappointed at the roll back to WWII? I do believe that time period has been worn out, but new angles, and support with the Modern Warfare engine could make this the finest we’ve seen since Medal of Honor: Frontline.

Expect Call of Duty: World at War to release Q4 2008 ”“ Q1 2009.
