Call of Duty: WWII Officially Unveiled by Activision and Sledgehammer Games

Posted April 23, 2017

Activision today revealed the newest Call of Duty game, and it definitely takes the series back to its roots.

The newest game in the "Call of Duty" franchise is being created by Sledgehammer Games, the same studio behind "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare".

If the promotional poster is to be believed, then the Call of Duty WW2 release date has been set for November 3. Hence, we're rather stoked to see what Sledgehammer games has in store for the upcoming Call of Duty WWII.

Activision has finally revealed what's going to be next big thing for "Call of Duty".

It was reported that the company made a decision to return to historical conflict after last year's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare didn't have the same success as the previous year's Black Ops 3.

That said, nothing is official until next week's livestream event, but Call of Duty is nothing if not consistent in its platform selection and release month when it comes to its console games. It seems all too convenient that we'd have a World War I game by one company only to have a World War II game from its competitor just a year later. Call of Duty: WWII will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

No dates have been given for the private beta, it's unclear if it will happen earlier in the year, more towards release, or if they will conduct both open and closed betas for the game.

A leaked ad popped up that describes a new gameplay mode for the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise.

A tweet confirming the worldwide reveal of "Call of Duty WWII" on April 26 was sent from the official COD twitter account on Friday afternoon. Given that this is a game set in World War II, this isn't exactly a huge surprise. The fact that the franchise is focusing on World War II again will win back many gamers who have left over the years. Historically, several Call of Duty titles have launched in November, though it's not certain at this point if this release will follow suit.
