Activision has announced the next Call of Duty game, and it’s titled Call of Duty: WWII. Yes, Call of Duty is going back to its roots with a World War 2 setting, the first time a game in the series has been set in the second world war since 2008’s World at War.
WWII is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the team behind 2014’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Activision will be showing the game off with a gameplay reveal livestream scheduled for Wednesday, April 26 at 12pm CT.
Smith’s Sentiment: Fairly interested in this. It’s been just about a decade since a Call of Duty game has been set during World War 2, so it’s about time. Like most people I had burned out on the setting, but with a decade break what’s old is new again. EA found a lot of success with the World War 1 setting for Battlefield, so I’m sure Activision is banking on this to breathe some life back into the Call of Duty franchise.
