Over the last few years, Call of Duty has switched themes more times than Homer Simpson’s switched jobs. We’ve had the Modern Warfare series, which moved the franchise to the modern day. There was the Black Ops series, focused on tensions between the US and the Soviet Union in the Cold War. And well, with Infinite Warfare heading to space with futuristic combat, it seems like no theme is too out there for the COD franchise.
And now it seems the series is heading back to its roots. Why? Because the latest game (pre-emptatively titled Call of Duty WWII) takes the franchise back to a World War 2 setting. Here’s the teaser page for it, featuring the title and a count down:
As well as some details from the game from a recent marketing material leak. These details (which can be seen on Charlie Intel) mention things like a co-op mode and a trip through iconic moments in the war. Like say, landing at Normandy on D-Day.
It’s not a huge amount of detail, but it’s some none the less. And hey, given that there’s going to be a livestream this Wednesday at 10AM Pacific Time (it’s what the countdown is counting down too), it’s not like we’ll be waiting too long for more.
But what do you think about the idea anyway? Are you pleased that Call of Duty is returning to its roots? Do you feel like another World at War type experience is needed in this day and age?
Or would you rather have a different setting instead?
