New Call of Duty release date hinted

Can you guess when?

The rumour mill has been working overtime again, this time with release date details of Treyarch's planned Vietnam entry to the Call of Duty series.

Unsurprisingly, the new title was mooted to follow the previous two iterations of the series and hit shelves in November of this year. The news fits in with everything we have come to expect of Activision with the publisher clearly hoping to have Christmas number ones, two years in a row.

The rumours have appeared courtesy of an un-named senior industry figure who spoke to CVG off the record.

His exact words were apparently: "It's going to be November again - just as with World At War and Modern Warfare 2. Activision believes that it can own Christmas 2010, just as it has in the last two years."

He also added some information about the state of the games development: "Development is on course - and Treyarch have been told the game must be ready to hit shelves before the gifting season."
