Treyarch, know fondly as the bastard child developer in the Call of Duty franchise, has just announced its latest entry into the franchise since Call of Duty: World at War. Not many details of the game have been released except a trailer, a release date, and speculation. The trailer is in the external link.
Activision has confirmed that this game takes place in Vietnam but also shifts settings to Cuba and the Arctic. What is head scratching, though, is in the trailer you also see a man wearing a space suit! I bet Jonah Dark makes an appearance, too. Feel free to post your speculations, theories, and “insider” facts in the comments thread. Official press release quoted below.
