The news came today directly from Activision itself, which included the official title - Call of Duty: WWII - and also a tease for the "Worldwide Reveal" next week on Call of Duty's official website. Sledgehammer Games' Michael Condry confirmed the game would release in November, as every Call of Duty game has before it.

Leaks related to Call of Duty: WWII continues to arrive on the internet since the official announcement from Activision. For their second entry into the series, Sledgehammer Games will be releasing Call of Duty: WWII later this year.

"Sales underperformed our expectations, and it's clear that for a portion of our audience, the space setting just didn't resonate", said Activision Blizzard chief operating officer Thomas Tippl during a February earnings call. A livestream is scheduled for April 26, which is expected to bring more information about the game, including details about the shooter. As you can tell from the WWII in the title, it's definitely going to be set during World War II.

A Redditor posted an image of GameStop's incoming shipments, which indicates that stores will receive promotional material for both Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 around the same time. Multiplayer will allow gamers and their friends to engage in a number of fast-paced battles and interact with the Call of Duty community.

According to a report from The Verge, the revealed game setting for the latest in the "Call of Duty" franchise has already been in the rumour mill since last month. Remarkably, the new one will be its third installment now with Activision.

Activision revealed today the title of its upcoming game Call of Duty: WWII along with a picture of a soldier wearing a US military helmet. Judging by the images, this year's Call of Duty will simply be known as "Call of Duty: WWII". There isn't much to them, but it sure is nice to see a Thompson submachine gun again.
