Sledgehammer’s Cancelled Call of Duty Game Took Place in Vietnam, Here’s Some New Concept Art

Published

While I’m excited for Advanced Warfare, this should have been a thing and hopefully will be sooner or later.

Sledgehammer Games, the lead developer on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, was previously working on a Call of Duty title set during the Vietnam war. The game was actually quite different from the traditional Call of Duty formula, putting the game into a third person view and exploring the more “horrific” parts of war.

The team had a full 15 minute demo of the game developed the was fully playable, but was put on the back-burner when Activision came to Sledgehammer for help on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Will we ever see this title come to fruition? Personally, I seriously hope so because the Vietnam War is something that hasn’t been explored very well in games and could offer some very dark storytelling if done right. With the Call of Duty name at the helm as well, it could be a very fresh take on the franchise and help the brand expand to other genres.

For now, you can see “what could have been” by checking out the concept art released just below. Leave us your thoughts on this cancelled project in the comments and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest gaming news.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
