Put on your thinking caps, boys and girls, because this one’s a doozy. When asked by Joystiq about his firm’s feelings on returning to WWII with Call of Duty: World at War, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia replied that his company isn’t going back at all.
See, when CoD5 was conceived, CoD3 had just been unceremoniously shoved out the door. Therefore, by that logic, “there was no modern warfare,” said Lamia, because CoD4 was still a twinkle in Infinity Ward’s collective brain matter.
Ah, semantics. Don’t you love ‘em?
