Call of Duty Job Listing for Systems Designer Suggests Modern-Era Setting

Share this:

We may have been given a hint at a new modern-era Call of Duty being in the works. A job listing posted by Treyarch asks for an experienced systems designer, specifically for one with a knowledge of “modern military technology.”

Here’s the part of the listing that requests applicants have a “deep knowledge base of firearms and modern military technology.”

And you’ll really get our attention if you have:

  • Combat design experience on a AAA competitive shooter.
  • Previous design experience owning entire categories of gameplay content both at the moment to moment and systems level.
  • Deep knowledge base of firearms and modern military technology.
  • Prestige 1 or above in Black Ops 3 Multiplayer.

David Vonderhaar, Treyarch’s studio design director, tweeted the job listing out himself:

So it seems perfectly possible that an upcoming Call of Duty game could be set in modern times! Would you like to see that?
