'Call of Duty 7' already 'in production'
Treyarch animator's resume lists development of reportedly Cold War-set game as being "currently" under way; 2010 release date expected.
Last week, rumors surfaced that Activision was working on "Call of Duty 7," the next chapter in the wildly popular first-person shooter series. They stemmed from a report on That Videogame Blog, which said that the publisher was looking for "Vietnam War-era tunes, as well as Cuban, African, and Soviet Union music."
Now comes further proof that Treyarch is already hard at work on a new entry in the series. According to the LinkedIn resume of an animator at the shop (name withheld), "Call Of Duty 7" is listed as "currently in production." Activision reps had not responded to requests for comment about Treyarch's current project as of press time.
The resume offers no other details on Call of Duty 7, including platforms, ratings, or a release date. However, given that Modern Warfare 2 is due out November 10, 2009, a fall 2010 release date appears likely. If the past two games are a precedent, an M for Mature rating and multiplatform release are also all but assured.
