In returning to a World War II setting, the Call of Duty series has gone full circle from space-age weaponry. The first game in the Call of Duty series was set in World War 2, but it was also part of a gaming generation where the community was growing weary of all the first person shooters set during World War 2, with competition from Medal of Honor, Battlefield 1942, Red Orchestra, Brothers in Arms, and even a popular Half-Life mod, Day of Defeat.
Now the community is tired of shooters with over-the-top infantry abilities such as wall-running. Also, since there have been no World War II first-person shooters made this decade using modern game engines, it makes sense to return to a World War II setting for an interpretation using modern game engines.
