IGN has found concept art for Sledgehammer Games’s canceled third person title, which was going to be set in Vietnam, and take the franchise to an action adventure genre. The concept art was done by Eddie Del Rio.

Sledgehammer Games canceled this title to take up the opportunity to work on Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward, and now work on Advanced Warfare.

    that looks sick!

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    This would have shit on MW3.

    • kplem

      you’re forgetting its 3rd person are you really gonna play cod in 3rd person?

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Yes. I would. The character customization in MP would make far more sense.

        • Constant_Win

          Because we all play CoD for the MP character customization…

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Some people do, even though it makes no sense..

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            We play CoD for the customization in general, I liked that feature in Ghosts.

        • kplem

          did you play it in MW2 the 3rd person mode?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yes.

          • kplem

            yes the character customization would definitely make more sense. but i doubt seeing it sell, i would love the Vietnam element to it

    • Tep Kok

      Literally anything that has ever existed in this universe or the next shits on MW3

      • SeaSaltSora

        But…

        I like MW3… D:

  • kyr95

    Such a shame :/ I hope they return to it eventually.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      I think they’re just letting it go. :/ Keeping it in the past. It’s a shame because this game would have been better than MW3.

      • kyr95

        Yeah, but on the positive side, im so glad that they are part of the franchise, it took them to take cod in a new direction and im happy they did

        • kplem

          yeah but its 3rd person that would be cod it wouldnt sell either i for sure would buy it full price

          • kyr95

            I’d definitely buy it, and although Activision assigned them with the job of developing a 3rd person cod, SHG decided to assist in the development of Mw3. But thats fine, we have AW now, although i do hope that they return to it someday in the future.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I wouldn’t bet on it. Cancelled means cancelled. They’re not funding the project anymore. :/

          • kyr95

            They did mentioned that they had moments thought for that game that would like to show us some day, we can only hope.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Where’d they say that?

          • kyr95

            In one of the interviews of gameinformer i believe.

      • Keshav Bhat

        It would’ve been very hard to sell off because COD is known for being a First Person game. This being third person would have resulted in lots of hate, and many not buying it.

  • Adam

    I’d totally buy it if it was first person. I love the Vietnam era but dont really care for 3rd person.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      BO1 had Vietnam. 😛

      • Adam

        Which is part of the reason BO1 is my favorite CoD.

  • Another Vietnam game would be amazing! Just not 3rd person. That’s not why I play COD. If I want a spectacular 3rd Person Shooter, I’d play Uncharted (which is fantastic).

    • PHAT PETE

      the 3rd person on mw2, was great.

      • Azen

        3rd person aint great. it just stupid…

        • lumps-of-a-god

          Exactly because someone can take cover and see you when didnt see them

    • PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION :P

      Glad someone on this thread mentions Uncharted – masterpiece from the Naughty Gods

      Can’t wait for Uncharted 4 🙂

      by the way do you own a PS4 or xbox one?

      • IZKGaming

        What about the masterpiece known as The Last of Us?

        • well Uncharted is made by the same people that made The Last Of Us so they are both great games

        • Grenada!

          both masterpiece games that deserve the credit from ND.

        • fires

          What about a little old gem called Crash Bandicoot?

          • Azen

            that not masterpiece that shitpiece.

          • IZKGaming

            Oh Yeah that too 🙂

      • I own both

      • Mr Doge

        What do you mean “mentioned on this thread”? This is a CoD forum why should it BE mentioned if you want to talk about how amazing Uncharted is then go on an Uncharted Community forum not here. This is for CoD.

    • sweg

      What about Jak & Daxter that game was amaze balls!

  • jordanxbrookes

    Looked good as well, I hope Treyarch are making a game set in the Cold War again.

  • Damien Anderson

    They could save this idea for a huge expansion. kind of like how Battlefield BC2 had that Vietnam dlc.

  • Ryumoau

    awesome art. 🙂

  • Josh

    Thank god we got Advance Warfare and not this!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Come on now, AW looks good and this game ALSO looks good.

  • Paco

    Ho Chi Minh rules!! USA never won Vietnam War

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Whoa whoa whoa, have some respect… Nobody won Vietnam, it was a war that should never have been fought, but we (the US) fought anyway because we are patriotic people who love our country.

    • Dr. Salim

      We sighed a treaty and you guys broke it so idk why you’re chanting.

  • Damien Anderson

    That Cliffside village needs to be a multiplayer map. Oh my fucking god the sexy possibilities!!! It reminds me of that Halo 1 multiplayer map Boarding Action.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Yeah, that looks amazing. This is SH’s concept art, maybe there’ll be a futuristic version of it. In a DLC maybe? One can only hope, lol. I really want to play on that map, though.

      • Josh

        I saw you comment on OverBoardHumor’s newest YouTube video haha.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Lol yeah. 😛

  • Maxspawn

    I think a WW2 setting would be cooler simply because WW2 is more known and much larger than the Vietnam war

    • fires

      I think they chose vietnam not because of the scale of the war, but the emotional after-effect of, “MURICA, DOESNT always win”

  • Guest

    Got bored so I decided to do something with the images….

    • Zarky

      Not sure why its posted it twice 😛

      • You probably deleted your first post because something went wrong,the page posts your comment as a guest after that,i dont know why

        • Zarky

          I deleted it because I clicked the “Insert Image” icon and the image wasn’t being inserted 🙁 But I guess it took some time for it to show up

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yeah, that happened to me a few times.

  • Zarky

    Got bored so I decided to do something with the images!

      Damn dude! That’s pretty good think you can make it into a wallpaper?

      • Zarky

        That was my first attempt but it didn’t look so good so I turned it into a twitter banner 😛

            Yeah it’s Windows 7 just with a custom star button

      • Zarky

        But here it is anyway 🙂 Had to re-make it so its not 100% the same but its pretty close…

        http://i.imgur.com/mvw5SLp.jpg

        Had to up-scale the images which is why it doesn’t look to great as a wallpaper, loses quality. But enjoy regardless 🙂

        Vietnam Zombies for Treyarch’s game in 2015.

        • Fighting zombies in an open world Vietnam-era with jungles and crafting? Yes please.

    • Mr codman1976

      sweet great job man.

    • exeterman2

      That’s brilliant man. Great work.

  • BigBadBryant

    We got a decent break from the WW2 setting in Call of Duty but I think that it’s time for them to get back to their roots. It is clear that from a narrative standpoint, their single player campaigns have suffered since their shift to futuristic settings. They don’t have the emotional connection or impact that the historical events of WW2 conjure.

    • Xecho

      To have the same weapons over again? No thanks.

      inb4 “They’ll use different guns from different countries.”

      it doesn’t make sense to do that in SP unless they actual stop with the WOOO MURRICA shit all the time.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I hope Treyarch does something like with Origins. Not exactly steampunk, but more like alternate reality. Like what Wolfenstein did with the “What if the Nazi’s won WW2..” but maybe something different. It’s a little far fetched, but I can see how it could work if they did it right. Plus, it brings so many more possibilities for maps and weapons, which would be awesome.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          I have my own ideas on a game that I’d like CoD to become that’s influenced by Wolfenstein. I think it’s pretty good.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Same. Wolfenstein doesn’t have MP, so it’ll be pretty unique as a COD game.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Yeah I wish I had a game dev company so I can share my ideas.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            You can always give suggestions on twitter or on their forums. Idk if they read the forums, but you could link the thread from the forums to their twitter and they might check it out. Probably too late for COD 2015, but maybe a later game.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I highly doubt they’d listen to me lol, and I’d rather keep my ideas for myself, especially if I wouldn’t get something in return for them using my ideas lol, I’m definitely going to college to be a game developer.

    • Gince

      Looks pretty bad to me

    • Mitch

      This is another canceled project which was in development by Vicarious Visions.

    • Dr. Salim

      That would be fun if it was CO-OP.

    • shanafan

      Reminds me of the Outfit from the Xbox 360’s early days.

  • …just imagine this would be the 3rd gamemode 😀 i know its impossible but still it wouldven been amazing

  • Tayler Hammond

    I really hope they release a demo of this game some time. It would be awesome to see what they were working on before MW3

    • Xecho

      They won’t

    • Wish Chaos

      Are you dumb?

  • Mr Buckethead

    I think it would be really nice.but not 3rd person

  • steelersdc26

    I would love to see a WWII game that takes place in the European Theater of the war, such as the D-Day Invasion. Fighting in the Pacific was cool, but I think Normandy with the next gen graphics would be INSANE.

  • Τhε Grεατ Gατsβy™

    I have a question, if I preordered Advanced Warfare on the Playstation Store.. do I still get the ghosts/BO2 camo pack and the advanced arsenal pack? Cause it’ll suck if I preordered it on PSN just to play it at 12am exactly -.-

    • fires

      if they offered it online, probably. I thought the bonus only happens in physical pre-orders; ie, gamestop. I may be wrong, if they offer it on PSN, it should come with both.

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    No way i will buy this game if it was 3rd person.

  • Mr codman1976

    A Vietnam game like battlefield bad company 2 Vietnam dlc, that shit gives me a stiff one.

  • LikeaSomeboday

    Would have been great, 10/10, definately would recommend.

    • jordanxbrookes

      You misspelled ‘definitely’, 0/10.

      • Wish Chaos

        Here we go with the fucking Ali-A fanboy religious preaching!!!
