But that's about it.
After many rumors and much speculation, the existence ofCall of Duty: WWII was revealed yesterday with a countdown page leading to its official announcement.
The image above was just tweeted by Activision, promising a proper reveal at 6pm BST on Wednesday, April 26. " There is still no confirmation on which platform the new game will be launched, so we assume probably it will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch".
Call of Duty is still a ridiculously successful franchise, but recent Call of Duty titles have struggled to achieve the same level of success as the first couple of Modern Warfare installments. Soldiers were seeing storming Omaha Beach on D-Day.
Promotional artwork and prospective box art leaked in late March, seeming to confirm the series would be "going back to its roots" as Activision executive Eric Hishberg put it during a company investor call in February. The WWII setting was first leaked by The Family Video Gamers YouTube channel.
Strap on your combat boots, shoulder up that automatic rifle and head for the trenches - that's right, Call of Duty is returning to its roots. The Call of Duty series began in 2003 with Call of Duty, a game that's also set in WWII. Many fans won't be surprised after the disappointing reception of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Typically the game arrives near the beginning of the month. Some of which Charlie Intel has gotten their hands on that give us some new information about the next COD game in regards to its release date and private beta. Despite leading 2016, "Infinite Warfare " couldn't quite reach the lofty heights of "Black Ops III". It is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio that produced Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare. "A next generation game with the latest production values and robustness in a World War 2 setting like Band of Brothers would be wonderful", he said.
Fans are eager to take a break from constant double-jumping, wall-running and all those futuristic stuff. What do you want to see them do in this game?
The official Call of Duty website also inadvertently leaked three small in-game images of WWII. Stay tuned for our analysis of the reveal.
