Is COD and Activision going back to it’s roots?

Something happened to COD around 2014, the franchise that placed its players in modern war engagements suddenly became a future shooter! The whole antigrav jumps and the many laser based fighting tools it looks like Activision is finally done and dusted with the setting. After three instalments and the bomb that was Infinite Warfare the trigger has been pulled with COD now going back to its roots.

This isn’t some voodoo im using here and I certainly have not been reading the Tea Leaves again but Activion’s senior VP of investor relations Amrita Ahuja has admitted that Infinite Warfare “wasn’t the success we planned” One tracking company even claimed that it sold 50% less than Black Op’s 3 at launch.

So will 2017 COD take us back to older war encounters, like Battlefield One did , will they pull us back to a more simple time of warfare.

“In 2017 Activision will take Call of Duty back to its roots, and traditional combat will once again take center stage,” Ahuja said.

This years instalment will be bought to you by Sledgehammer Games, it’s first since Advanced Warfare and there is some hint that the studio has dropped down to a earlier point in the 20th century.
