Vietnam hinted as location for next Call of Duty again

In what is becoming the worst kept secret in the history of the gaming world, yet another clue that Vietnam will be the location for at least part of the next Call of Duty game has sprung up. Before it was music requests and unfounded gossip that led us to this conclusion; now it's a casting call.

A recent casting call in LA has called for voice over/motion capture work for a Call of Duty game. The work was being done for a character named Frank Barnes who is part of an elite Vietnam military unit, the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group. This was a highly classified, elite group of men from varying military services who conducted covert operations during Vietnam. Barnes is described as, “a fiercely patriotic veteran of WW2… A solid leader, possessed with an excellent ability to assess and respond to any situation quickly and decisively.”

It also describes three other characters who may or may not be in the game. Joseph Lewis, a “very physically fit” black man in his 20s; Jason Hudson, a 30-something white male with “over 15 years of military experience, making him an excellent tactician and mission co-coordinator”; and Kristina Ivanova. a lady from Russia who knows martial arts and is “calm to the point of being cold and detached.” You forgot the nerdy Asian guy with a background in science and the forced to be there because of the draft hippie, Treyarch. I suppose you don't want to hit too many cliches all at once though.

You can see the full casting call over at VG247.
