    Is the wii even powerful enough to pull of such good graphics?? [​IMG] Dunno sounds fishy to me...

    Anyways kinda bummed out about them making yet another world war II game. Hopefully they'll do enough new to make it feel fresh.

    Really.. HOW? [​IMG]


    Anyway, the game is not being made by Infinite Ward (CoD4), but by Treyarch that made CoD3.. so.. don't expect too much [​IMG]

    The engine will OBVIOUSLY be modified.

    And great, COD4 was absolutely fantastic and now the series gets dragged right back to WW2. Screw this.

    How could they drag it back to the past again?! How stupid is that. Being in a different time is what made CoD 4 better imo. Im sick to death of all these world war games. Dont we have enough of them?!

    It's a completely different team working on this Call of Duty.
    Long story short, while they guys we're working on COD 4 another team was hard at work on 5.
    Just because one team decided to take a new direction, doesn't mean the other shared the same views.
    By the time the 4th one came out and everything thought it was awesome that they we're moving away from WW2 they we're all knee deep in making COD 5 anyway.

    Who knows, maybe the COD 4 team is hard at work at a modern sequel to 4.

    I am kind of bummed that it is going to be in a WWII setting, but maybe it will still be as good as CoD4.

    CoD4 engine on Wii? Sorry to say this but I don't think this'll be possible unless you have the engine modified so heavily that it looks like CoD:UO. That's basically stepping back to the Unreal 2.5 engine. Sounds good eh?

    I'd heard that the CoD4 people recently became the only CoD dev for every game in the future (meaning games released past now, not games that happen with aliens and crap) except CoD5, because it's already being made.

    Of course it'll be heavily modified. It's not like the Wii version will look like the PS360 versions.

    Why go back to being a WWII shooter? The whole genre is so lame now. COD4 was brilliant. I was hoping for something a bit more futuristic yet still well done.

    I'm pretty interested to see what they would do with the Pacific Theater setting. And I wonder if they would do Pearl Harbor. Or maybe we'll be the bomber that dropped the bomb. Pretty scary stuff. I really wonder if they'll do any of these. It might spark some more controversy though. Wii Zapper+Pearl Harbor+Bomb+Violent scenes=VERY VERY Angry Parents?
    Who said this can't be a new game? It's still WW2, but not in Europe. There will be the Chinese, Australians, United States, New Zealand? and such. And it will be in an entirely new environment. A whole lot of bamboo and foliage.

    Interesting to see what they'll do with the Wii version.
    the DS version on the other hand.. it will probably look like CoD4 did.
