Industry rumblings suggest new Call Of Duty will ditch realism for space marines...

With Call Of Duty: Black Ops fresh on the shelves this week, rumours are already circulating about the future direction of the series, with calls from some quarters suggesting that the realistic conceit of the franchise may be eschewed in favour of a more futuristic aesthetic.

Sledgehammer Games are known to be working on a new installment in the FPS saga, and Gamasutra has cited ‘industry sources’ that suggest the new game “will be set in the future and feature, for lack of a better term, space marines”.

The Activision owned studio was founded in late 2009 by ex-employees from EA studio Visceral Games, and includes many key creatives from the original Dead Space team, including the Creative Director, Environmental Art Lead, and former GM. The studio is still hiring for the new Call Of Duty project, and no firm details have officially been released, but clearly this is a team with an impressive pedigree for producing immersive space combat experiences.

That would be genuinely awesome. I love the idea of long-haul space travel in a first-person shooter.

COULD be very cool, as long a they take a "realistic" take on the future, with bullets and long haul space travel instead of lasers and lightspeed.

@Post 1: So, basically you're looking forward to Sony and EA games then?

I hear what you're saying though. Sledgehammer Games could actually be CoD's last hope in a couple of years. By the time 2012 comes around, will we be so bored by the Infinity Ward and Treyarch formula that a new deveoloper breathing life into the series will be a welcome relief?

It'll be interesting to see what Sledgehammer is planning if the game still intends to be in the action/adventure genre... lots of Tomb Raider block puzzles to push around and locked doors to open?!?!

bored bored bored.  modern warfare was a great FPS.  world at war was ok for multiplayer, but the single player was abit meh.  modern warfare 2 was, well, crap imo.  the single player was rubbish in terms of level design, ai, it's length and storyline.  it was a 2 year old game (mw1) with new maps and a few new online features.   and then they have the cheek to charge over £10 for map packs, where 2/5s of it was from the 2year old game i mentioned before.  i think they NEED these new teams to maybe one day breathe life into it again.  Black Ops is the last chance COD gets from me haha.  much more excited by other games on the way now, such as:  Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, Gran Tourismo 5, ModNation Racers, Crysis 2, Little Big Planet 2, and more i just can't think of.  I think they only people really left playing COD are actually not really old enough to be playing it lol.  Sorry, but complete lack of interest here!
