Next Call of Duty back to WWII ?

It seems as if the next Call of Duty game might take gamers back in time to the WWII era again. Treyarch, the developer of Call of Duty 2: Big Red One and Call of Duty 3, is looking for multiplayer and single-player level builders to join their team and work on what is obviously a World War II game.

Among other things, the job ad states: “Detail & polish levels (including lighting) based on photo reference, concept art, and design documents”, “Research subject matter for history and look of the map” and most revealingly “if you’re a fan of World War 2 shooters, then even better!”

Taking the series back to World War II may be a mistake, unless they manage to do something really fresh with the series. Is there really more to see that we haven’t seen time and time again ? But we’re guessing Treyarch’s game will be a ‘filler’ until Infinity Ward can finish their own next Call of Duty game. Which, considering the insane success of CoD4, will hopefully be Modern Warfare 2.
