The next game in the Call of Duty series will officially be set in World War 2. Sledgehammer Games, which worked on Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare, is creating Call of Duty: WW2. The game was first rumored last month.
After bringing the series into the future with games like Advanced Warfare and Infinite Warfare, the creators of Call of Duty are returning it to its roots.
Infinite Warfare had a ton of great gameplay innovations. But it also had a setting that didn’t appeal to all of our fans.
