Call of Duty returning to WWII setting with 2017 release
CoD returns to its roots.
This year's Call of Duty will return the series to its roots, bringing back the World War II setting that made the game a leading FPS title all those years ago. Studio Sledgehammer Games will be fronting development.
"Call of Duty returns to its World War II roots with Call of Duty: WWII, developed by Sledgehammer Games," the official blurb reads.
"More details are incoming during the game's Worldwide Reveal livestream on Wednesday, April 26 featuring Sledgehammer Games co-studio heads and founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield. Fans will be able to tune in to get a first look at Call of Duty: WWII and get intel on the studio's vision for the game."
The change marks a change in pace from recent Call of Duty releases, which have embraced "near-future" settings for the last few releases. The last release, Infinite Warfare, failed to meet the expectations set by its predecessors, seeing poor launch sales compared to previous entries in the series.
Call of Duty: WWII will get an official reveal on April 26th at 6PM BST. Be sure to tune in to find out what the future holds for the iconic shooter.
