Treyarch-made near-future CoD would be "pretty fantastic," says design director

Treyarch design director David Vonderhaar has said that a Call of Duty set in the near-future made by the developer would be "pretty fantastic."

Speaking to Machinima, Vonderhaar said "yes" when asked if the Black Ops dev would consider being up for the task.

"I think it would be kind of a unique opportunity but the way that this works out is obviously more complicated than, ‘Hey, me and Treyarch are going to make a near-future shooter,'" he said.

"It’s a tough question to answer. We have not announced any new Call of Duty games at this time but to answer his specific question I think, personally, it would be pretty fantastic to do near-future, you know? Not necessarily far-future.”

This week, Treyarch released the first map pack for Black Ops first on 360, First Strike.

As for any near-future Call of Duty titles, Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward are rumoured to be working together on Modern Warfare 3.
