Treyarch has hinted at a modern-era setting for their next Call of Duty installment within a Systems Designer job posting on their official website.
Creating titles such as World at War and the entirety of the Black Ops trilogy, Treyarch has cemented themselves as a fan favorite developer to produce Call of Duty games.
The annual cycle includes studios such as Sledgehammer Games and Infinity Ward, with all three developers switching off on a yearly basis to create the newest title.
Although each release is supervised by parent company Activision, producers are able to implement their own designs and twists to the franchise, often attempting to innovate as much as possible.
As the community anxiously awaits the return of ‘boots on the ground’ combat after three years of ‘advanced movement’ with CoD WWII on November 3rd from Sledgehammer, Treyarch is looking ahead to their future addition to the series, presumably slated for late 2018.
Under the Systems Designer (Combat) career listing on the Treyarch website, it lists the traits in which prospective applicants should be able to meet.
However, near the very bottom of the post, it reads that individuals will stand out if they possess, “Deep knowledge base of firearms and modern military technology,” among other characteristics.
While many believe that the posting is a huge indicator for a modern-era setting, it is unclear at the time of writing if the rumor will actually be taking place, or if it is a clever ruse to throw fans off of the trail.
