Sledgehammer Games' third-person, action-adventure Call of Duty title would have been set in the Vietnam War, said Sledgehammer co-founders Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey in an interview with Game Informer.


According to Schofield, the studio spent six to eight months on a prototype that introduced new combat mechanics and unique moments to the Call of Duty franchise, all of which were made possible by the third-person perspective. The action took place during the Vietnam War in Cambodia, a setting that presented new gameplay opportunities as well as some marketing challenges.


"We had the underground tunnels," Schofield told Game Informer. "We were definitely getting some Dead Space moments. I don't mean that from sci-fi, I mean that was a war that was scary for the [American soldiers]. They didn't know if in the jungle there was a booby trap, or what was in those tunnels."
