Activision has announced the global reveal of this year’s Call of Duty title will take place later this week on Wednesday, April 26th. According to a press release from Activision, the 2017 Call of Duty game will be titled Call of Duty: WWII, confirming recent rumors that the series would be using this year’s entry to make a return to its World War II roots.
Call of Duty: WWII is being developed by Sledgehammer games, and while some might think that the game’s setting is in direct response to DICE’s own multiplayer shooter Battlefield 1, it’s important to remember that Sledgehammer likely began development on Call of Duty: WWII shortly after it finished making content for its 2014 title Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which was well before DICE announced Battlefield 1.
The livestream reveal event will begin on Wednesday, April 26th at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST) and it can be watch over at the official Call of Duty website.
