The Call of Duty franchise began back in 2003 and has seen many highs, and lows since then. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2009) brought perhaps the greatest praise, with recent, more futuristic settings bringing the biggest criticism.

Developed by Treyarch, Call of Duty World at War is the fifth installment of the main series. Released after Modern Warfare, it returns to the World War II setting of earlier titles. It acts as a prologue for Treyarch's next game, Black Ops, which is in the same universe, sharing characters and story references.
Due to a legal dispute between the game's publisher Activision and the former co-executives of Infinity Ward – which caused several lay-offs and departures within the company – Sledgehammer Games assisted in the development of the game, while Raven Software was brought in to make cosmetic changes to the menus of the game. The game was said to have been in development since only two weeks after the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
The game continues the story from the point at which it ended in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and continues the fictional battle story between the United States and Russia, which evolves into the Third World War between NATO allied nations and ultra-nationalist Russia.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the eleventh main installment in the series, developed by Sledgehammer Games with assistance from Raven Software and High Moon Studios.
This is when futuristic Call of Duty really became a thing. It also starred Kevin Spacey in the lead role (before his recent accusations of abuse).
