Sledgehammer's first Call of Duty game, currently expected in 2011, will be set in space, industry sources close to the studio have told Gamasutra.

Not just set in space, but in the future with space marines, too.

The Gamasutra report didn't reveal any further info. Analysis

We've had historic Call of Duty titles and we've had modern day Call of Duty titles, but we're yet to have a futuristic, sci-fi Call of Duty.

Sledgehammer has the right men in charge to make a sci-fi hit. Studio heads Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey moved to Activision's studio last winter from Visceral Games, creator of Dead Space.

It certainly sounds plausible.

Haha, I'm pretty sure I read that exactly as you intended Jams!

Two thoughts:
1) CoD Near Future would be cool with some futuristic weapons but still mostly human rather than super spacemarine stuff.
2) We already travel to space, I know not regularly, but the idea of setting a fight in space isn't that far fetched...

The "Industry sources say it'll feature space marines." made me laugh

I'm surprised they haven't done it already.

I see Call of Duty fatigue setting in next year.

Call of Duty: Star Wars - now that would be cool - CoD's production values and gameplay using the Star Wars licence!

Didn't we predict this when they started buying up all those URLs? I can't see how it work...we already have futuristic shooters that have their place in the market.

"Call of Duty Future Warfare"
I actually quite like the idea of one with space marines.
