Call of Duty games have ranged in setting from World War II to the distant future, and we recently learned that there was even a pitch for an entry set in ancient Rome. The game’s concept included controlling a legion of Caesar’s most trusted soldiers in battle against Gaul, and there was reportedly support for the game at Activision, but only as a new IP rather than as a Call of Duty title.
Following this report, GamesRadar reached out to Activision for comment. Activision confirmed the existence of a proposal from
“a former employee while working at the studio,” but clarified that it “was not seriously considered nor requested to move to prototype.” Activision didn’t comment on Vicarious Visions’ reported involvement in the project.
