I am starting to get the feeling that Treyarch is panicking, I don’t know if it’s just from how their comments are being reported or my original worry about going back to WWII rearing it’s ugly head.
But I do actually think it’s more about how their comments are being reported, example A
According to Noah Heller from Treyarch
â€œThere’s a lot of competition this year, but I feel very strongly we have the best shooter this Christmasâ€
Which is a fair enough comment to make and why wouldn’t you think your product was the best, however the lead line from MCVUK.com is
â€œCall of Duty: World at War will beat Gears of War and Resistance 2, insists developerâ€
Which while factually correct puts the comments in an entirely different light and smacks of arrogance.
In my personal opinion Call of Duty 5 is not going to beat the 9.5 of Resistance 2 nor will it compete with the complete mania that will follow Gears of War 2, it is going to be the perfect replacement for Call of Duty 4 though and will do very well.
If I worked for Treyarch I would be telling the guys to stop talking to the media right now and let their game do the talking.
