Looks like the Call of Duty people are finally done with the FPS go-to that is World War II and have moved on to the Vietnam War.

Yay for new wars! Yay for not beating the dead horse that is WWII! Yay for awesome music!

OK. I’m assuming there will be good music. Please?

According to VG247, Activision is casting for motion capture and voice actors and if you read the character descriptions, Vietnam’s mentioned a couple of times.

Another change is the fact that Infinity Ward isn’t doing the next Call of Duty.

Treyarch – who did World at War – is handling development [along with Activison startup Sledgehammer] on the still unnamed Call of Duty game. One thing we do know is that the game is set to hit shelves November of this year and will be influenced by Platoon and Apocalypse Now [both awesome films].

Though I’m excited by the change of wars [that's something I never thought I'd ever write] I can’t help but wonder what the game will feel like since I’ve gotten so used to an Infinity Ward created title.

What do you guys think? Will Treyarch’s new Call of Duty title stand up to recent titles like Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2?

    I think it will be a really good thing, both storywise and for the action involved. WWII was about lines and holding them. Vietnam was about the unknown, the unexpectedness of ambushes. In vietnam they could walk across a wide open field and suddenly realize they were surrounded by people hiding in plain site. It was different enough to be an entire different type of shock. So if they do it well it could bring in an entire new world of FPS gaming.
