"don't think" they'll be revisiting it unless its "fresh."
World at War from Treyarch was set in WWII, but it went to the Pacific theatre. Call of Duty: Black Ops explores the Cold War and covert teams.
"For us, I don't think we would go back because we've done a lot of World War II," said Treyarch community manager Josh Olin.
"I'm not saying that the genre's done. It would be important that, if there ever were to be another game set in the World War II era, it would have to be something that's fresh and new. You still have to by that code and do something players haven't seen before."
"So, World at War was one example of that. We brought the players for the first time to the South Pacific to fight the imperial Japanese army. It was a different game to the other World War II shooters in the franchise. So, as long as there's new experiences people will still play them," continued the developer. Can you still bare to play WWII shooters?
"It is sort of refreshing to be in this new locale where we have all these new toys that we can play with. We've been making World War II shooters for a long time." Call of Duty: Black Ops releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC November 9th.
