Vietnamese setting for new Call of Duty spied
Activision are casting for a new "video game", the publisher seeking an LA-based voice over and motion capture actor to play the role of Frank Barnes, a soldier in an Elite Vietnam unit.
The Vietnam - Studies and Observations Group were active in 'Nam during the late 60s and early 70s, and this news follows speculation that Treyarch's next entry in the hit Call of Duty series will be set during the controversial 60's conflict.
Barnes - "a fiercely patriotic veteran of WW2 A solid leader, possessed with an excellent ability to assess and respond to any situation quickly and decisively" - will be joined by Joseph Lewis, Jason Hudson and Kristina Ivanova on the battlefield.
Of course, Activision haven't confirmed that this game is the next Call of Duty title, although given that the new FPS is expected out before Christmas we're fairly sure that it is. More as we get it.
