Sledgehammer Games, the developer behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, recently revelaed that their Third-Person Action-Adventure Call of Duty would have been Call of Duty: Vietnam. Now, they are saying that if allowed by Actision, they would jump at the chance to finish the game.
Speaking with GameInformer, Sledgehammer Games boss Glen Schofield acknowledged difficulties with the project such having a third-person game go head-to-head with a juggernaut FPS franchise.
“If they ever asked us to a make a third-person Call of Duty game I’d go back to what we were doing,” he said. “We found out as we were researching it as well, all around the world it’s actually known as America’s war. Not Vietnam’s. We were the only ones that called it the Vietnam War,” he noted. “It’s kind of unpopular. And we didn’t really understand the marketing aspect of that.” He further elaborated that the game had been in development for around 8 or 9 months, and that it had some interesting, but undisclosed, mechanics already built in.
While this isn't exactly an announcement or a sign for any future Call of Duty games, it's nice to know that Sledgehammer is still considering the prospect of an Action Adventure Historical game.
