Infinity Ward just as sick of WWII as you

Infinity WardApprently gamers and critics aren’t the only ones who are sick of World War II re-enactments. Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward, whose most recent project was a turn-tail-and-run departure from that particular subject matter, aren’t exactly big fans anymore, either. Speaking to Developer magazine, they said:

"Call of Duty 4 was Infinity Ward’s third Call of Duty game, and as such we approached it knowing we needed to do something fresh. We don’t want to pigeonhole ourselves any more than we have to, and many members of the team came off Call of Duty 2 promising never to work on another WWII game.

Coming off Call of Duty 2, we knew we wanted to do something different for our next game. We don’t agree with some critics who say that WWII as a genre is dead, but we couldn’t muster the same passion for the subject that we had in our first three WWII games."

I can certainly understand their feelings, because as difficult as it is to play WWII game after WWII game, actually building these things time and time again must be torturous.
