Activision Fulfills Call Of Duty’s World War 2 Promise

By  | 

Rather than parrot EA’s efforts of exploring in harrowing cinematic style the horrors of the First World War, Activision has apparently decided to take Call of Duty back to where it all started for the series – World War 2. That’s why the next installment is set to be called Call of Duty: WW2.

Eurogamer has recently confirmed this with it sources and has also pointed to The Family Video Gamers YouTube channel which revealed the box art for this year’s COD title. Looks like Activision is actually making good on its promise of the franchise getting back to its roots, after the disaster that is Infinite Warfare.

The developer for WW2 is Sledgehammer Games, the same folks who brought us Advanced Warfare back in 2014 – whether or not that’s good news is really up to the gamer. Critics gave it Sledgehammer’s futuristic shooter favorable scores, but gamers in general weren’t so kind.

Anyway, the studio’s co-founder Michael Condrey said that he would like for WW2 to have “latest production values and robustness in a World War 2 setting like Band of Brothers,” so perhaps the upcoming title would be gunning for the raw grit appeal of Battlefield 1 after all.
