Recent update from Treyarch says that they are not interested in revisiting World War II as they did did in in World at War.
Community manager of Treyarch Josh Olin said, “I don’t think we would go back, because we’ve done a lot of World War II. I’m not saying that the genre’s done. It would be important that, if there ever were to be another game set in the World War II era, it would have to be something that’s fresh and new. You still have to by that code and do something players haven’t seen before.”
He also added further that World at War is just one example of that. The developer brought gamers to fight the imperial Japanese army in the South Pacific.
The new series of Call of Duty will take place during the Cold War period where there were two superpowers, the Soviet Union and United States. In this war both the superpowers used non conventional means.
He says that Cold War offers to the gamers of Call of Duty: Black Ops some more material than the World War II. It offers the covert nature of military action of that period. So, the developer has more rooms to innovate and also to create some interesting scenarios.
Black Ops is set to be launched on November 9 on Xbox 360, the PS3 and the Nintendo Wii.
