Activision has officially announced that the next game in the series is Call of Duty World War II. A page has been hosted online that shows the first look teaser image while a worldwide reveal is set for April 26th.
With just a week to go, the excitement is rife among Call of Duty fans and gamers in general because World War setups were always the best in the series except for the Modern Warfare series.
In their official announcement, Activision said, “Call of Duty will return its original roots with World War II and the game is developed by Sledgehammer Games. For more details, you can tune into the livestream scheduled for Wednesday, April 26th where Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield who are the founders of the development studio will speak out. They are about to share a lot of details about the game, it’s elements and the vision they have for this future game set in the past.”
Call of Duty came into being in 2003 with a WWII setup and the finale was World at War. After that, all the games that got released were either set way ahead in the future or in the 1960s as it was in the Black Ops 2 among other titles. Call of Duty Modern Warfare is easily a gem even though it doesn’t have a world war setup. But, players wanted to go back in time once again and experience the battles in modern day graphics and improved game engines.
Electronic Arts and DICE developed Battlefield 1 has already gone to the World War I setup and had an incredibly well done single player campaign in a long time. Call of Duty series are always the best with their single player campaigns and decent multiplayer modes. The newest game in the series could very well the refreshment it needs after the debacle with Infinite Warfare and its abysmal sales.
