Simply called "Call of Duty: WWII", the new game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and, as rumors have hinted, will head back into the trenches of the Second World War.

Sledgehammer Games, the developer of the 2014 entry of the franchise Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, is the studio behind the upcoming title. It is now Sledgehammers turn to deliver their next Call of Duty game and well get the juicy details about it in just five days. It was only 2007's call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare that saw the game move into "contemporary times" when the game's popularity soared and set the template for future games. Publisher Activision broke the ice on Friday by officially unveiling the name of the next installment in the wildly popular gaming franchise, simply called World War II.

The official Call of Duty: WW2 livestream will take place on the 26th April at 6PM BST. No other detail was revealed aside from the setting, the title and the studio that will develop the game.

The thing is, World War II is not the answer. You'll be able to play with friends through this "next-level standalone game experience full of unexpected, adrenaline-pumping moments". (The game's space setting didn't resonate with the fans). It was the problem that the company needed to address on the "Call of Duty: WWII".


There was no confirmation today on which platforms the new game will be launched, so there's still a chance something will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. FPS fans will want to keep an eye out for Activision's livestream on April 26th at 10 AM Pacific to get your first look at Call of Duty: WWII.

A Redditor posted an image of GameStop's incoming shipments, which indicates that stores will receive promotional material for both Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 around the same time.

The Call of Duty: WWII release date is in November 2017 unless there is some kind of massive change to the development and release cycle.
