Treyarch’s Call of Duty game is set for a release in November this year, with Activision keen on the studio to have it out “before the gifting season”, CVG‘s rumouring.

A “senior UK trade source” told the site that the publisher has the game scheduled to arrive in the same period as World at War and Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2. Big shock there.

“Activision believes that it can own Christmas again, just as it has in the last two years.

“Development is on course – and Treyarch have been told the game must be ready to hit shelves before the gifting season,” the site’s source said.

The source also said that the rumours of the game being in Vietnam with a story influenced by movies such as Platoon and Apocalypse Now were correct.

Earlier today, insiders told VG247 that the COD coming after Treyarch’s won’t be developed by Infinity Ward.

Development on that is expected to be handled by Acti upstart Sledgehammer Games, which is managed by ex-Visceral heads Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey, said sources.

    Hard to do Nam, being the good guys didn’t win. Maybe they’ll have our troops shooting children. Nam=touchy.

    Hell, even MoH is getting out of WW@, may Valve will do a modern version of DoD.

    Activision are going to be the Simon Cowell of gaming. Give it a few years a some bright spark will start a Facebook group to get Killer7 to No. 1 at Christmas.

    Agree with Splattered House. The nam-a-like levels in WaW were by far the worst in the game. Not interested in playing 6 hours of that.

    Treyarch should stick to what they’re good at…

    erm…
