With a world wide reveal for Call of Duty WW2 imminent, marketing materials have apparently started to hit retailers readying for pre-orders of the game. WWII will be developed by Sledgehammer Games and co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield will be presenting the livestream when the time comes.
He did note it will be interesting to see how Sledgehammer Games will turn back the clock with the multiplayer setting of "Call of Duty: WWII", considering the sci-fi settings had wall running and double jumping. Combat is being described as "classic" for the series, and the bonds of camaraderie will also play a big role in the game's narrative.
The rumors are true - the Call of Duty series is diving back into the world of Axis vs. Allies with Call of Duty: WWII. If past releases are any indication, we'll likely see the game on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The leaks were real: this year's COD will be going back to the Second World War, as Acitvision tease a full reveal for next week.
However, they have deviated so far from the formula that made these games so successful.
"It's been a long time coming and we've been on research for the last two and half years, traveling all over Europe and the world, to research World War 2 to get this game right for fans".
We would put money on a Call of Duty: WWII release date on Friday, November 3rd. After many leaks, Activision confirmed the setting and promised a worldwide reveal next week. Now that we have a countdown, we know that we will learn something on April 26th at 10 AM Pacific. "But it also had a setting that didn't appeal to all of our fans".
This marks an abrupt change of direction for the series, which hasn't explored the World War II era since 2008's "World at War".
Activision now has three studios rotating the annual game: Sledgehammer, Infinity Ward, and Treyarch.
