KXIP vs KKR Live Score

A few weeks ago leaks seemed to confirm that this year Call of Duty would be going back to its World War II roots, and Activision have now confirmed it.

Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty: WWII.

Back in 2003, Activision released the first Call of Duty. The leak also teases "exciting new ways to interact and socialize with their friends and the Call of Duty community". So it is very unlikely that Activision simply pivoted to World War II just because of last year's results. As CEO Eric Hirshberg has said during an earnings call in February, "Infinite Warfare had a ton of great gameplay innovations, but it also had a setting that didn't appeal to all of our fans".

Questions are now being asked as to when pre-orders will actually open for Call of Duty: WWII, and we can probably bank on that happening directly after the reveal on April 26.

Last but not least, Sledgehammer shared a brief video on Twitter in which studio head Michael Condrey talks about the upcoming title while standing outside the Churchill War Rooms in London.

Viewers of Fox News are taking to social media to express outrage over the announced ouster of their most popular host. Representatives at Fox News and its parent Twenty-First Century Fox Inc were not immediately available for comment.

While we still don't know if Call of Duty WW2 is set to land on the Nintendo Switch, as well as PS4, PC and Xbox One platforms, we do know when we'll find out. The setting is the flawless environment to not only make shooting the highlight of a game, but also tell deeply moving stories during the campaign.

Sony has had timed exclusivity on map packs dating back to Call of Duty: Ghosts in 2013. As every year, a "Call of Duty" game is released, Sledgehammer should release the 2017 game at once.

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.

Activision announced Call of Duty: WWII with nothing but an image of a lone soldier. Activision will release more about the game in their Worldwide Reveal livestream on Wednesday, April 26 at 10am PST.
