Wait…how can we possibly imagine Call of Duty without World War II? The two go together like peanut butter and jelly, like politicians and prostitutes; CoD is WWII! Ah, but Activision has a big change in store for fans of the revered franchise, and yes, you guessed it: they're moving beyond the famous world war.
According to IGN , the next installment in the series – yet to be officially unveiled – is scheduled to make its first appearance during the televised NFL Draft on ESPN this Saturday. And it's called Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare , which means WWII is out and a modern setting (perhaps like the one we see in the likes of Ghost Recon ) is in. Not much is known about the game at this time, but Treyarch has apparently been working on this next-gen CoD since their development time for Call of Duty 3 .
Platforms for the game aren't officially announced, either, but IGN confirmed in February that Activision is looking at the PS3 and Xbox 360 for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare . If you want a sneak peak, tune into the NFL Draft, which begins at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET on Saturday.
