Update: Now that the stream is over you can watch the game’s first trailer, take a deep dive into what it’s trying to accomplish and learn more about why this was the right time for the series to return to World War II.
Activision and Sledgehammer Games are set to announce the first solid details of Call of Duty: WWII during a livestream today at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, and you can watch the event live with us right here.
“Call of Duty returns to its World War II roots with Call of Duty: WWII, developed by Sledgehammer Games,” the official announcement stated. “More details are incoming during the game’s Worldwide Reveal livestream on Wednesday, April 26 featuring Sledgehammer Games co-studio heads and founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield. Fans will be able to tune in to get a first look at Call of Duty: WWII and get intel on the studio’s vision for the game.”
Leaked marketing materials have also announced a co-op mode for the game, as well as a private beta for those who preorder. No platforms have been announced for the game either, with many speculating (hoping?) that the title will see a release on the Nintendo Switch.
We’ll hopefully find out very soon.
