'Call of Duty' Is Headed Back to World War II

The next Call of Duty is going back to World War II.

The Call of Duty: WWII leak occurred in late March of this year, when we could see footage of some game cases and promotional art.

We all know that another Call of Duty title is coming this year, because obviously.

After that, starting in 2009, Call of Duty moved to modern warfare. Drawing back to the series' origins, Activision's next CoD title will revive the setting that skyrocketed the franchise.

After Activision made a decision to provide a sense of freshness into the franchise, lifelong fans responded with disappointment. So it is very unlikely that Activision simply pivoted to World War II just because of last year's results. Fans will be able to tune in to get a first look at Call of Duty: "WWII and get intel on the studio's vision for the game". According to the series' website, the livestream will take place next week on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 10:00 am PT and 1:00 pm ET.

There's no release date or game console specified in the information provided, but we'd guess that "Call of Duty: WWII" will arrive in November on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Additionally, as more games adopt the open world concept for campaigns, hopefully, this will be an opportunity for "Call of Duty" to shed its linear-based campaign mold and offer something truly unique.
