Those rumours that Treyarch's next Call of Duty game is set in Vietnam? They might only be partially correct, if a supposed casting call for actors for the game is anything to go by.


The call, spotted by VG247, is looking for four actors to provide a mixture of voice work, facial capture and full-body motion stuff for the game. Interestingly, it also gives some background on the characters, and while some of them suggest that there'll be action in South Vietnam, others - like the female spy Kristina Ivanova, who speaks both English and Russian and "has a network of contacts behind the iron curtain" - hint at a larger scope for the game, perhaps touching on areas of the Cold War outside South East Asia.

That is, if the call is legit.

We've got in touch with Activision for comment on this, and will update if we hear back from them.
