According to the latest rumours, the upcoming Call of Duty game from Sledgehammer studio could be set during the Korean War in 1950s. The rumour comes from reliable insider ModernWarzone.

Rumours about the next Call of Duty game are in full swing as we get closer and closer to the official reveal, which should be scheduled for Summer. And just like every year, players are eager to find out where this next Call of Duty title will be set. 

Some insiders suggested that Activision plan another modern-day setting, while whispers about Advanced Warfare 2 are also making rounds on social media and gaming forums, especially after we found out Sledgehammer Games are behind the project.

However, today we have some first, proper rumours about the setting for the next Call of Duty. According to reliable insider and Call of Duty content creator DougDagnabbit of ModernWarzone Twitter, Call of Duty 2021 will be set in the 1950s, during the Korean War and will include Guerilla Warfare. 

This is certainly an interesting one since we already have Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty WW2, which are set close to that time period. To be honest, we were almost 100 per cent sure the game would be Advanced Warfare 2 or some other futuristic title but it seems that Activision decided to reuse some of the assets from Cold War and WW2. 

Perhaps, the game is indeed behind schedule which explains why six support studios are currently working on the game. 

Anyway, as always with these rumours and leaks, take them with a grain of salt since nothing has been officially confirmed by Activision. Hopefully, we'll get more information about the game in the coming months.
