Activision Planning November Release For Call of Duty: Vietnam?

There’s been quite a bit of chatter this week about where and when Activision’s juggernaut Call of Duty franchise will be heading for its next tour, and if recent reports are to be believed, players will be shipping off to Vietnam this holiday season.

Sources tell CVG that Call of Duty: World at War developer Treyarch have set a tentative release date of November for the acclaimed shooter’s seventh installment. Continuing the series’ cinema-inspired presentation, the game is expected to borrow heavily from films such as Platoon, Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket (Can you say R. Lee Ermey as a drill instructor?).

With EA taking a stab at modern warfare with their Medal of Honor reboot, it would be quite fitting for Activision to try their hand at Nam, six years after the release of EA’s Battlefield: Vietnam. Also, considering Treyarch’s last effort took place in the tropical environs of the Pacific Theater, it would seem they already have a head start on the whole jungle warfare thing.

While it certainly makes sense for CoD to finally take on the fertile setting of the Vietnam War, Activision and Treyarch are keeping quiet for now. I’ve contacted Activision to see if they have anything to say about all of this, so stay tuned.

What do you think about a CoD Vietnam game? Did you play Battlefield: Vietnam?
