No more numbers in CoD game titles, says Treyarch

Monday, 23rd June 2008 07:54 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking at a Call of Duty: World at War event, developer Treyarch told that there aren’t going to be any numbers attached to Call of Duty sequels from here on in.

“We’re getting rid of the number in Call of Duty for a very specific reason,” said senior producer Noah Heller. “It’s because we want you to know that when you’re playing Call of Duty: World at War you’re playing the best shooter, the best WW2 game ever. Likewise when you’re playing Modern Warfare, likewise when you play any game that will be called Call of Duty.”

There’s a massive interview with Heller and creative lead Rich Farrelly right here.

    What a load of rubbish.

    More likely that it’s not called COD5 because it’s clearly not of high enough quality to be considered a step forward from COD4…

    The quickest way to make sales is to take a franchise and increment the number on the end.

    The quickest way to devalue your franchise is to make a newer version that’s not as good as the previous one.
