A new job advertisement could offer a hint at the setting for the next instalment in the Call of Duty series.

Developer Treyarch is looking for a level builder to work on its "industry leading first-person shooter action war franchise". The ad states, "If you're a fan of World War II shooters, then even better," leading to speculation COD5 will mark a return to the series' roots.

Further details of the game are yet to emerge, but at least we know it's in the pipeline. COD5 was referred to in a fact sheet about the formation of Activision Blizzard just a week ago. The fact sheet also mentioned new Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero titles, which are unlikely to be set in World War II. Stranger things, mind.
