Call of Duty: World War II is shaping up to be an amazing return to old-school Call of Duty, and what's better, it's only a few short months away. The CoD WW2 release date has been confirmed for November 3, 2017, meaning it'll be with us just in time for the Christmas break.
In a move that surprises absolutely nobody, the series will be heading back to its roots with a World War II setting. While it’s likely that Call of Duty: World War II has been in development for a couple of years now, it’s still odd that DICE headed to World War I with its recent release of Battlefield 1, and now we’re seeing the Call of Duty franchise step away from the jet-pack-wall-running games that fans have gotten used to over the last few years. In fact, our own Nate Hohl asked whether Call of Duty: World War II was swimming in Battlefield 1’s wake back in February.
Giving our take on the new Call of Duty being set in World War II, it doesn’t really matter why they’re going back, it’s the smart thing to do. People I’ve known for a long time who have avoided the franchise for years are talking about giving it a shot, which leads me to believe that Call of Duty: World War II is likely going to sell even better than it’s more modern-themed relatives.
Make sure you get involved in the Call of Duty WW2 Beta so you can play it before it releases on November 3, 2017.
