Although Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare did find an audience, the truth is, the majority of players and fans of the Call of Duty series in general were not happy about the direction this game was going. This was known even before the game’s release – the box art as changed in a marketing attempt to dampen down the space/futuristic vibe to the game.
Moving on, many of us have been in reflective mood – thinking back to Black Ops II, or even earlier games like World at War or before! So it’s no real surprise that Activision have dropped an announcement that the next Call of Duty game (2017) is called WWII.
This year Sledgehammer Games joins the WWII ranks of Call of Duty with Call of Duty: WWII, which will bring the series back to World War II after nearly ten years. We can’t wait to tell you more about Call of Duty: WWII, so be sure not to miss the reveal livestream at 10:00am Pacific on April 26. We’ll see you there, soldier.Call of Duty WWII
Whether it’s Activision’s answer to EA’s Battlefield 1 we are yet to know. But if anything is clear, Call of Duty has lost a lot of ground with the last few releases. To be fair, it was at the top for so long – the only way was down.
I can safely say that a WWII can mean no double jumping – a more traditional boots-to-ground Call of Duty game. And the word ‘space’ is presumably worse than the ‘C’ bomb in the Sledgehammer Studios at the moment! (Let’s hope anyway).
