Despite not even knowing all the details about this year's Call Of Duty release, rumors have already started to swirl about what the franchise might release in 2020, with the biggest one speculating that the game will be set in Vietnam.
There are two types of game that you need to buy every single year if you want to remain up to date. These include sports games such as FIFA, Madden, and NBA2K, as well as Call Of Duty titles. There has been at least one CoD release every single year since the first one hit shelves all the way back in 2003.
It is somewhat understandable. For starters, we keep buying them. If there is money to be made and you have the manpower to do so, why not release a new game every year? Also, basing a game around war gives the developers a lot to play with, as there are many moments throughout history that you can base a game around. Although the minds behind CoD might be running out of ideas after Black Ops 4 was based in 2043.
We're joking, of course, as there is still a litany of points in history that CoD has yet to focus on. The Vietnam war might be the biggest of all, and might even be a significant time in US history that CoD has been trying to save for as long as possible. Well, according to Gaming Intel, time is almost up. Sources have told the site that in 2020, there's a strong chance we will be getting a CoD game set during the Vietnam war.
That is apparently one of two possibilities, according to a source that is no longer linked with the project. The other is that the game could be set on the Pacific Front during World War II. While CoD: WWII focused on Europe, there is still a lot of the world left to be utilized for upcoming CoD games.
Developers of the game, Sledgehammer, actually had plans to release a Vietnam-based CoD game a number of years ago. However, it was pulled away from that project to assist in the development of Modern Warfare 3. Clearly, it is a topic that Sledgehammer has wanted to broach for a while, and now it might very well have the chance.
Plans change, though, and since there is still this year's CoD offering to come before the 2020 edition, it is best, as always, to take these rumors with a pinch of salt.
