It looks like Call of Duty is returning to its roots: A new website has popped up for the next installment in the series, titled Call of Duty: WWII.
For now, all we have is the game’s main website, which shows the face of a soldier. Next to him is a countdown clock which ends on April 26 at 10am PT. On that day, Sledgehammer Games, the studio in charge of making the new game, will present additional details on the upcoming title, including a reveal trailer.
World War II isn’t a new frontier for the series. In fact, the first three Call of Duty games used the war as the backdrop for their campaigns. It wasn’t until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which came out in 2007, that the series switched to modern and futuristic settings. Since 2007, only two games in the series, Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops, used historical events such as World War II and the Cold War, respectively, in their campaigns.
It’s unclear yet as to why the new game reverted back to World War II, but part of might be the result of EA and DICE’s success with Battlefield 1. In any case, we’ll find out more about the game at the livestream event next week.
