Call of Duty: WWII Officially Announced, Reveal Coming Next Week

Sledgehammer Games  Activision

Call of Duty is returning to World War II for its next iteration, as Activision just let loose the name of the next game in the first-person shooter series. Hence, we're rather stoked to see what Sledgehammer games has in store for the upcoming Call of Duty WWII.

In February, Activision COO Thomas Tippl revealed that this year's release for the Call of Duty franchise will bring it "back to its roots".

So it seems like this year's Call of Duty game is leaving no stone unturned to leave its mark for many years to come. Call of Duty games will continue on a three-year cycle of development. There's no release date yet, but we'll get more details during a worldwide premiere livestream on April 26 at 1 p.m. ET. Next week's reveal should open the gates for pre-orders and we'll likely get more details about this. WWII will be developed by Sledgehammer Games and co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield will be presenting the livestream when the time comes.

While we still don't know if Call of Duty WW2 is set to land on the Nintendo Switch, as well as PS4, PC and Xbox One platforms, we do know when we'll find out.


The thing is, World War II is not the answer. (The game's space setting didn't resonate with the fans).

Call of Duty: WWII is finally official!

Strap on your combat boots, shoulder up that automatic rifle and head for the trenches - that's right, Call of Duty is returning to its roots. Historically, several Call of Duty titles have launched in November, though it's not certain at this point if this release will follow suit. You'll be able to play with friends through this "next-level standalone game experience full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments". For the last six years, the new Call of Duty release date arrived in November. Thus, going back is actually a step forward for Activision and Sledgehammer Games.
