Call of Duty: New Version Officially Announced

Activision, Call of Duty’s game publisher announces the name of its new version as ‘Call of Duty: World War 2’ which is expected to be released this year. This news was actually released ahead by The Family Video Gamers Youtube channel by leaking the news like The World War II is setting for Call of Duty during the early 2000s.

As the title suggests, it will take place during the 1940s. Aside from the one piece of art for Call of Duty: World War 2, little else has been made public at this juncture. Nonetheless, its creator Sledgehammer Games has stated a full reveal will be made at 10am PT (10:30pm IST) on April 26, via the Call of Duty: World War 2 website.

According an Activision earnings call, the company stated in that the "2017 title will take Call of Duty back to its roots." Considering how Destiny 2's reveal was leaked prior to an official unveiling, we won't be surprised to see the same happen for Call of Duty: World War 2.

While no date has been set for the next Call of Duty, safe to say Activision would release it in November as it has done with prior entries. 2016's Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was developed by Infinity Ward while 2015's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was helmed by fan favourite Treyarch. 2017's game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, responsible for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Perhaps this year's version could see a remaster of another classic in the series? We won't have to wait too long to find out.
