While we know Call of Duty 7 will not be the official name for the next iteration of Activision’s First Person Shooter, we’re sticking with it. But some reports have made their way to PerezStart headquaters. We know, you’re currently enjoying Modern Warfare 2 and haven’t even thought of a new Call of Duty game. But you know how video games go. Much of the buildup to the release is more exciting than the post release; it’s the way the video game industry works.
For now, here’s what we do know. Treyarch, developers of Call of Duty: World at War (Call of Duty 5) will unsurprisingly work on Call of Duty 7. The game is also scheduled for release in November, a norm for the publisher Activision.
Here’s where the rumors kick in. The setting is set to be in either Cuba or Vietnam. If the war takes place in Cuba, we’ll all be sure to see Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and their “Revolucion” take over the country once governed by Fulgencio Batista. Being of Cuban descent, I would welcome the idea since this would be an original concept for a Call of Duty setting. Too many developers have milked the World War era and it’s time to move on. To my knowledge, the Cuban Revolutionary Ear has not depicted in any video game and with the FPS genre, this game could be huge. Treyarch mastered World at War but can they go back to the “vintage” well and produce another instant hit?
