Fans of the Call of Duty video games have been convinced for some time now that the next installment will go back to its roots and be set in World War Two. And, well, it turns out they were all bang on the money all along. That’s exactly where the new CoD game will be set. And its name? The very clever ‘Call of Duty: WWII’.
We told you before that makers Activision had hinted at the game going back to how things used to be, and now they’ve actually confirmed it via a tweet on their official Twitter account.
In a longer announcment, the firm said this:
“Call of Duty returns to its World War II roots with Call of Duty: WWII, developed by Sledgehammer Games.”
“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.”
