Call of Duty Might be Returning to World War II Setting

first_imgLike many early-to-mid 2000s first person shooters, Call of Duty games used to take place during the second World War. With the exception of Call of Duty: World at War, the series has primarily been set in modern times or the future for the past ten years. The latest entry, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes place in the far-distant future. Many wondered where the series could go from there. If leaked marketing materials turn out to be legit, it seems Call of Duty will go back to where it all started.These marketing materials were sent anonymously to YouTube channel, TheFamilyVideoGamers. The video shows images of promotional materials and steelbook designs that show beach landings and WWII-era clothing and weapons. According to IGN‘s sources, all of these leaked materials are authentic. Not only have their sources seen these materials for themselves, but they also indicated that the next game will indeed take place during World War II.While this rumor may seem like a surprise, there were signs pointing to Call of Duty going back to WWII. Earlier this year during an Activision investor call, it was stated that the next game in the franchise “will take Call of Duty back to its roots.” Activision also said that a WWII game was possible all the way back in 2015.Ever since Modern Warfare changed the gaming landscape, big AAA FPS games have all but stayed away from World War II. However, given how much time has passed, it seems that the industry is ready to revisit one of its favorite settings. If Call of Duty does return to WWII, it will be interesting to see what it will do differently from the countless other WWII games.As with any rumor, take all of this with the proverbial grain of salt until we get official confirmation from Activision.last_img
