Gaming INTEL has received exclusive information that Call of Duty 2020, set to be developed by Sledgehammer Games, is expected to be set in Vietnam or the Pacific Front.
CoD 2020 – Vietnam or Pacific Front, According to Sources
The rumor mill for this year’s upcoming Call of Duty title is already well underway, but in this article, we want to cast our gaze even further than the latter half of this year to the end of 2020, when Sledgehammer games will be releasing their next Call of Duty. A very reliable source has informed Gaming INTEL that CoD 2020 will be set in either Vietnam or on the Pacific Front.
This information comes from an incredibly early stage of the game’s development, and since informing Gaming INTEL our source has become disconnected from the project, but nevertheless, if the game develops on its current course players should prepare for another historic Call of Duty next year.
Longtime fans of the Call of Duty Franchise will know that Sledgehammer has already attempted to develop a Vietnam based Call of Duty in the past. They were taken off the project, which was intended to be a third person shooter, to assist with the development of Modern Warfare 3.
A game set on the battlefield of the Pacific Front seems a somewhat more likely approach for the third Call of Duty Development studio, following up 2017’s Call of Duty: WW2. That game focused primarily on the battle up through Europe and players didn’t get to visit any of the more exotic theatres of war.
In any case, Sledgehammer games creating a Call of Duty game rooted firmly in the past makes a great deal of sense from a marketing standpoint. Hot on the heels of Black Ops 4 and Modern Warfare 4, a trip to the past would be a welcome breath of fresh air after more modern and futuristic games.
As always with leaked information, it’s worth taking these at least some skepticism, especially when you consider how far out from Call of Duty’s 2020 release we actually are.
Expected Announcement: May 2020
