More Reports Emerge Suggesting This Year’s Call of Duty Is Indeed Call of Duty: WW2

Reports emerged over the weekend that this year’s Call of Duty game will be called Call of Duty: WWII, and that it will be set, as its name suggests, in the World War 2 era. Now, Eurogamer is confirming that that might indeed be the case- according to their own sources, it seems as though this year’s Call of Duty is indeed going back to the Second World War.

This makes the game notable, because it is the first game since 2008’s World At War – almost ten years ago – that we are getting a World War 2 Call of duty game. The series actually started out as a remarkably high quality World War 2 era shooter, in an era when World War 2 shooters were dime a dozen, but only broke out in mainstream consciousness with Call ofDuty 4: Modern Warfare. The success of the modern setting caused it to ditch the World War 2 era, and since then, the series has covered the Cold War, modern warfare, the near future, far flung future with cybernetic enhancements, and even full on space warfare.

This, then, will be it returning to its roots- and after people finally getting tired of the franchise’s relentless push towards science fiction, as Infinity Ward’s Infinite Warfare released last year shows, it couldn’t come a moment too soon.
