Call of Duty 7 Under Development at Treyarch

Treyarch senior animator David Kim has let slip that Call of Duty 7 is under development at the studio behind Call of Duty: World at War by listing it on his LinkedIn profile.

"I am currently on my second title as a senior animator in the games industry with Activision / Treyarch on Call Of Duty 7," reads Kim's profile, superannuation spotted.

Call of Duty 7--no doubt a working title--may be expected next year given Activision's commitment to annual releases of its major franchises, and its "leapfrog" strategy which has seen Infinity Ward and Treyarch alternate CoD entries these past few years.

Kim's Call of Duty 7 listing follows recent rumors that the sequel could be set in the Vietnam War era, based on the tunes Activision is supposedly seeking to license.

World at War senior producer Noah Heller of Treyarch stated last year, "I can't say that there won't ever be a WWII Call of Duty game again," suggesting that World War 2 might be on the shelf for now--but he also raised several promising unexplored areas of WW2.

Obviously no platforms are known yet but the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are safe bets considering the franchise's history on the platforms and recent Activision activity.

The next Call of Duty entry will come from Infinity Ward with Modern Warfare 2--originally referred to as Call of Duty 6--this fall, which recently received a brief teaser trailer.
