Activision has officially announced Call of Duty: WWII.
Last month several Call of Duty: WWII images were leaked. While the pictures certainly appeared to be plausible, and sources confirmed that they were legitimate, there was no official word from Activision until today.
Activision officially confirmed today that the next game in the Call of Duty franchise will, in fact, be set during World War II.
The confirmation is just that – a confirmation. No details were provided – the full reveal will take place during a livestream at 10am PT on Wednesday, April 26.
Activision recently announced that it has plans to create a Marvel-like cinematic universe based on the Call of Duty franchise. The plan appears to be to create a universe inspired by the games, instead of using the plots from any of the games. The first film could hit theaters as early as next year.
