Call Duty WW2 2017 Officially Worldwide Reveal Update: Activision has officially revealed their brand new WW2 Call of Duty game, from Sledgehammer Games, the developers behind 2014’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Call Duty WW2 2017 Officially Worldwide Reveal was announced by Activision this evening together with the game’s first piece of official box art and an official website.
As promised by Activision previously, this new entry in the yearly Call of Duty series is going “back to its roots” with a WW2 setting that will hopefully spark similar levels of interest as Battlefield 1 last year.
Although Activision has said this party line once before, including last year’s ultra sci-fi influenced Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Sledgehammer Games studio co-founder Michael Condrey has openly stated the game will be a return to ” boots on the ground” combat.

The only thing missing from Call Duty WW2 2017 Officially Worldwide Reveal announcement is footage of the game in action, but it has been confirmed that Sledgehammer Games will showcase this in full next week as part of a special livestream.
The official Call of Duty: WW2 livestream will take place on the 26th April at 6PM BST.
A release date of Call Duty WW2 2017 Officially Worldwide Reveal hasn’t been mentioned, but a previous leak has suspected that the game will arrive on November 3.
It’s also still unclear as to what platforms the game will be released on and whether Activision has any plans to bring it to Nintendo Switch or Microsoft’s Xbox Scorpio.
It’s obvious that the Nintendo Switch doesn’t pack the same power as the PS4, Xbox One or Microsoft’s proposed Xbox Scorpio.
But the fact is Activision has made a habit of releasing lower spec versions of their Call of Duty games in recent years so as not to miss out on players still using legacy consoles such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Given the success of the Nintendo Switch, it would make sense for Activision to capitalise on the booming market, in much the same way as EA intend to do with their next FIFA 18 game.
Though Infinite Warfare bucked the trend, Advanced Warfare and Black Ops 3 were both available on Xbox 360 and PS3, albeit in a stripped back form compared to the PS4 and Xbox One release.
Likewise, it’s worth noting that Activision has already thrown their hat in with the Nintendo Switch with the more recent port of Skylanders Imaginators to the new handheld console.
Speculation has been mounting over a WW2 themed Call of Duty ever since several pieces of realistic ‘CoD 2017’ promotional materials surfaced online pointing towards the game ditching recent futuristic settings in favour of going back to boots on the ground gameplay.
The artwork shows a band of brothers style bunch of soldiers on the muddy battlefield with the words Call of Duty WW2 beneath it.
Fans are now awaiting some official details to be revealed and while it’s possible that Activision will announce it early to combat further leaks, history would suggest that Call of Duty: WWII will be unveiled at some point towards the end of April or early May.
The leaked images originally appeared on a small YouTube channel called TheFamilyVideoGamers and since the reveal, Eurogamer has verified that these images do indeed relate to this year’s new Call of Duty game.
