Sledgehammer Games Tease Untitled 2017 Call of Duty Game with Possible Modern Setting

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare developer, Sledgehammer Games is currently hard-at-work on the as yet untitled 2017 Call of Duty game, and while almost nothing is currently known about this year’s installment, the developer has begun to tease a possible setting on social media.

With the popular franchise called into question recently over its choice of futuristic settings, with previous entries including Sledgehammer’s very own Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (2011) and last year’s Infinite Warfare, developed by Infinity Ward coming under heavy criticism for its choice of destination, it appears the California-based studio are taking the next title back to a more modern day setting.

On Christmas day, Sledgehammer Games developer Michael Condrey posted a Call of Duty 2017 teaser via his official Twitter page, the tweet can be seen below:

As reported by GeeksUltd, the posted image shows a Colt M1911 pistol, a weapon manufactured in the early 1900’s and still used to this day. The M1911 pistol was used by U.S soldiers as a standard sidearm throughout various wars including World War I, World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War.

The appearance of a Colt M1911 from Sledgehammer could very well indicate that the untitled 2017 Call of Duty game might revert back to a modern setting, be it past or present, with a recent IGN leak hinting that the next CoD entry could feature a possible Vietnam setting.

Additionally, Sledgehammer Games also teased 2017’s entry a few days ago on January 1st, 2017 with a short video that appears to show a safe lock with a combination that results in 2017, but this could simply just be the studio’s way of celebrating the beginning of a new year.

With a large percentage of the series’ fans calling for a return to a modernistic setting, the early teases from Sledgehammer are certainly pointing towards that very possibility.
