Treyarch has told the latest issue of GamesMaster that the studio considered making a futuristic Call of Duty game for some time before the year 2025 was settled on for Black Ops 2.
Studio head Mark Lamia said moving the franchise to a Cold War setting for the original Black Ops sparked plenty of creativity within the studio and it was something he wanted to see repeated with the sequel.
"It was actually something that we've talked about doing for a while," he said in a 14-page Black Ops 2 blowout in the magazine's July issue. "We settled on it about the time of Black Ops' [development] ending."
