Could Sledgehammer's Vietnam Call Of Duty game have been the series most thoughtful entry?
It's now common knowledge that Sledgehammer was working on a third-person Call Of Duty game set during the Vietnam War but they've not said much on the concept.
Concept artist Eddie Del Rio was involved with the project and now he has released some of the artwork he did for the abandoned concept and it shows that Sledgehammer could potentially have built a much more thoughtful take on the Call Of Duty series.
The artwork seems to have been influence both by the extensive array of poignant films that have been made on the Vietnam War as well as the striking photographs that were taken by embedded photojournalists in the notorious conflict.
The concept was abandoned when Sledgehammer were drafted in to help Infinity Ward finish Modern Warfare 3 but it seems to have had the potential to be a far less superficial experience than the Call Of Duty series has become.
