After a few leaks gave away the name and some marketing announced the release date, Activision has finally released concrete details for Call of Duty WWII, the next entry in the long running shooter series. This time, the series is stepping back into the trenches of WW2, where it first began back in 2003.
The game is set to release on November 3rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with players stepping into the boots of soldiers as they fight across the European front, fighting for the allies, through the mud, blood and horrors of war.
"More than two and a-half years ago we made the decision to return this franchise to its roots, and Call of Duty: WWII does so in epic fashion," said Eric Hirshberg, Activision CEO. "The team at Sledgehammer Games is delivering an authentic, gritty, cinematic experience that honors both the epic scale, and the human struggle of the greatest war the world has ever known. This game will let longtime fans experience World War II like never before, and will introduce this historic conflict to a whole new generation of gamers in the process."
Added Glen Schofield, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games, "The story we're telling is unlike anything that we've tackled before. It's such an amazing journey of common everyday people who became heroes. We want to respect this great generation of soldiers, tell a realistic story set in a true inflection point in human history, and deliver the best experience of our careers."
