After months of speculation, Activision confirmed today that Call of Duty is returning to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII.
The game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind 2014’s Advanced Warfare and it is the first time the series is set in the Second World War since World at War almost ten years ago.
There hasn’t been much information revealed so far, only a teaser page counting down until a livestream set for next Wednesday when the game will supposedly be revealed. However, teasers have been sprouting up around Twitter in anticipation for the worldwide unveiling.

Most of the internet has known about the return to form for the Call of Duty series thanks to a couple of leaks from last month. Some might consider this a copycat move considering the success of Battlefield 1 this year, the franchises main rival who broke new ground by setting their game during the First World War. However, games take a few years to make, and unless there is some internal communication (or spying) between EA and Activision, this might just be a casual coincidence.
Like every other year, expect Call of Duty: WWII to land this November in all home consoles.
