It's "obviously more complicated" than just going off and doing it, but it would present a "unique opportunity" for them. Far-future not so appealing though.
"I think the answer is ‘yes'," said Treyarch Game Design Director, David Vonderhaar, asked if the studio would ever considering stepping the franchise into the future.
"I think it would be kind of a unique opportunity but the way that this works out is obviously more complicated than ‘Hey. Me and Treyarch are going to make a near-future shooter.’ It’s a tough question to answer."
"We have not announced any new Call of Duty games at this time but to answer his specific question I think, personally, it would be pretty fantastic to do near-future, you know? Not necessarily far-future,” added Vonderhaar.
The next Call of Duty is due from the doors of Infinity Ward. Already there are very future sounding trademarks attached to the Call of Duty name - 'Call of Duty: Future Warfare,' 'Advanced Warfare,' 'Secret Warfare,' and 'Space Warfare'.
Sledgehammer Games is rumoured to be developing a future set COD instalment but has allegedly slowed down in order to help out Infinity Ward with their next offering. Would you welcome a near-future set Call of Duty, videogamer?
