After speculation and a teaser from Activision that the next Sledgehammer Games developed Call of Duty would see the series return to its roots comes confirmation that Call of Duty: WWII is happening. Coming later this year (with a rumoured release date of November 3), the game will take place during the second World War. A full reveal is set to happen at 3AM on April 27 this week.
Here's the confirmation.
After the success of Battlefield 1's return to the early parts of the 20th century, a new World War II game feels like the right move for the next Call of Duty. Like a pendulum that swung away from classically-set shooters to the more current-day futuristic setting of recent years, World War II in gaming is fresh again.
Leaked marketing material suggest that the game will feature both co-op and a mission or set piece around D-Day.
