Yesterday, Call of Duty: WWII was officially revealed by Activision and Sledgehammer Games but they didn't reveal too much other than the title and some promo art. Hence, we're rather stoked to see what Sledgehammer games has in store for the upcoming Call of Duty WWII.
Remember when we were all so excited for the Call of Duty series to leave its well-trodden World War II roots behind? These games were all excellent in their day, but subsequent series likeModern Warfare and Black Ops pushed Call of Duty to new heights, at least from sales and multiplayer perspectives. So it is very unlikely that Activision simply pivoted to World War II just because of last year's results. Indeed, earlier this year, Activision's CEO Eric Hirshberg insisted that the series would "return to its roots" for 2017's entry. One can expect that will change soon, however, the game will be formally disclosed in a Livestream on this month. Co-studio heads and founders Michale Condrey and Glen Schofield previously worked at Visceral on the Dead Space series. Call of Duty: WWII will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
It follows a recent online leak, with an image of an alleged promotional poster for Call of Duty: WWII. The images show USA soldiers seemingly storming France's Normandy beach, an event known as D-Day and one of the most infamous World War II operations. "But it also had a setting that didn't appeal to all of our fans".
Well, some of the rumors were fairly accurate, like the tweet from Sledgehammer that implied what time period the game was going to be in. A special live stream of the gameplay of Call of Duty WW2 is also expected.
On Wednesday, April 26, at 10am PST/1pm EST, the developers and publishers of Call of Duty: WWII will be taking the stage for their Worldwide Reveal Livestream!
With November 3 falling on a Friday, the release date is plausible, especially based on previous Call of Duty games.
