I wouldn't mind a modern day COD, but either way I'd be happy.

I hope it stays WW2. As long as it's more like COD2 and less like COD3 I'll be happy.

Actually It doesn't matter for me. I voted for Modern Time though.
All I want is that they fix the goddamn AI.

As long as they make it more like COD1 was then I couldn't care less. Every new cod game got worse and worse :(

WW2 I hope, love CoD1 and 2, although not played CoD3 yet.
They just manage to be fantastic experiences.

I would be disappointed if they set COD4 in modern time. I'd like to see some fighting in the Pacific theater.

this is the only problem with the COD series and the new game coming out will be based in modern times the original maker in infinity ward will luckly be making this one too which his much better for us 360 fans, it is also most likely not coming out for any console and being solely for PC. Infinity ward was the company who made COD2, and finest hour

the new one will be in the modern war and it will basically be a war poster for people to go join the army, IW announced that it will be modern about 2 months ago on their website

Link? Being as this is going to be the first official announcement of COD4, I can't see how they would of announced it being Modern War. In that link above there is no such confirmation, only speculation of it being set in Modern Times.

I'll put money on it being released on PC about a month before consoles. Infinity Ward would be Stupid not to release it to the the next gen console. Remember they're a business, they don't care about the ethics of COD3 being released on consoles only.

I could go either way I think, but I like the WWII set of weapons so that's what I voted for. As long as it's like CoD2 and not CoD3 I'll be happy.

They should keep it historicle, not to modern times. i dont mind if they move on to another war though.

As far back as I can remember COD has always been a world war 2 game and I really like that :D

Ah well, I do love CoD2 and still got plenty to do on veteran difficulty so I don't mind sticking with that for a while :D

I hope to god its not a modern times war. There is still so much left to cover for WWII. Japan, Pearl Harbor, more in Europe. So long as it sticks by COD2, then it will be an amazing game. COD3 isn't that bad, just noticeable differences in my opinion. Veteran on COD2 is twice as hard as COD3, but the game itself in my opinion is ok. But I really hope its in WWII. I've lived through the war in Iraq and as far as a game would go, I don't want to see Soldiers blowing to bits by an IED, or teaching iraqi's to fight and rebuilding a country....I want to kill bloody JERRY's!!!!!

I have only played CoD2, and I love it. I heard 3 was nothing to be excited about. I voted for Modern day, but if it's a great war game then I'll buy it, WW2 or Modern day doesn't matter.

What would be cool if they made it Futristic Warfare. I know the chances are next to none of it happening, but I'd like to see something similar to 2142 arrive on the 360. 2142 FTW

this is where IW is different that most companies, the reason that COD3 was not released for PC was they wanted to give the "Consolers" their shot at playing the game and let them catch up, which is why they gave the rights for COD3 to Treyarch and we all know what happened there.

the thread was deleted by an admin on the IW forums, one of the moderators posted it and was relieved of his moderator status for releasing the data, i only received it from a friend whom i believe

I could go either way but i would prefer modern times. I think WWII was been played to death already. Treyarch made CoD3 so Infinity Ward could focus on CoD4.

To be honest i was a bit disappointed with cod 3 and i dont which time it is set in as long as it's good!

i think cod should stay WW2, it wouldnt quite be right any other time period, but activision are making this one again so i it should be fairly good whatever they deceide to do

Would like if it was historical but still more modern, i mean i love WW2 and all but a nice break for at least one game would be cool, don't want and futuristic or Vietnam styles though, never really liked Vietcong or anything like that.

I wish they would announce they were not making a COD4 this year, as the series will go the way of Tony Hawk if they keep doing these yearly sequels.

Very True. However I think with the damage COD3 has done to the reputation of the COD series, I think a COD4 by mid 2008 would be a good move.

Ugh, you guys do realize that the Modern Era started around the 1700s, but if you refer to the Contemporary Era [as in NOW], then, my vote goes neutral. If you mean Modern, then I would say yes. WW II is getting boring already. Killing Nazis, is old. Let me kill something else, Brits, French, Arabs, Asians, etc.

World War II never gets old my friends...And if killing Nazis is getting so old, then how about killing some commie-japs! (no offense japanese people)
Why break a good habit? Why fix that which is FAR from broken? Keep WWII!:woop:

i hope its ww2 or a differnt war than modern time.. the modern war going on now is more govered by like graw... i think call of duty should stick to the older ones, it will be so much better.

The whole premise of COD is the game is staged in various parts of WW2. Now it's pulling a Battlefield and going into the future. I'm going to have to say without seeing it in action, 'Jump the Shark' on this one.

There are still so many more battles with in WW2 they can make a lot more CODs I don't think they will be thinking of a modern war game anytime soon...

Looks like Battlefield 2 with single-player, the A.I. looks pretty top notch though- they squeeze down sometimes when they die and the gun goes off while they fall like in F.E.A.R and they are bringing back the more dramatic scripted sequences.

Couldn't this be a bit too controversial though? Besides the Topic there are like 3 execution style shootings in the trailer, and I think I saw soldiers sweeping a plane (bombs?)

Yep its true the next call of duty is called modern warfare and is finaly leaving World War 2 behind

'War rages on in the fourth edition of Activision's acclaimed war game. For the first time in the series, Call of Duty moves away from WWII to the modern battlefield.' quoted from IGN.com

? do you think this is good or bad ???

I still haven't even opened up COD 3 & I got it the week it came out...

I also need to go back and play COD 2 on Veteran...

i agree with walch, but there r just SO many shooters dealing with war right now or close in the future (battlefield, graw, etc.) so mabe they should try somthinge like the korean war or mabe even go into ww1

I like the idea of it going modern, there have been so many WW2 games.

I hope they don't change the game play at all, i don't want it to be like GRAW or Counter Strike

its gonna be nice to have it in modern times cuz how many dam times can you beat hitler,but also it may be just like graw or it may just may be a broing war game anyhow i think cod is dead but who knows maybe this will be a good game

I'm so glad they have moved beyond the wwII theme. While this era was fun it was beginning to get a little stale. This should be an awesome fresh new addition to the franchise.

Rifle Elite
05-23-2007, 07:05 PM
please WWII or maybe WWI there arent many games that has WWI fights. There are already enough modern games. If its a WWII game i want that there will be also german missions. Not missions where the germans lose but where they win. And i also want to see a bit of the russia army and something of Japan. I hope there arent that many american missions i hate them because in every war game it are american soldiers u have to play the missions with like Call of duty 3, Rainbow six and GRAW 2.

Rifle Elite
05-23-2007, 07:14 PM
nah i changed my mind please no WWI. All they did during that war whas running between 2 trenches for 4 years. They get out of the trench and get all killed b machine guns. Germans get out of their trench and they all get killed by machine guns. And when the americans came to europe the war ended very fast because of the tanks that the germans didnt have.

:shrug:
It didn't feel modern to me.
I thought it was set around civil war times. That's what I gathered from the muskets anyway, and how all the guns had 30 second reload times.
