Sledgehammer Games is ready to reveal more about the shooter series' trip back in time
Today Sledgehammer Games will revealed more about the latest installment of the massive shooter series. Call Of Duty: WWII takes the series back to its roots with a World War 2 setting, so there'll be no more battles in space for a while.
The game will be released in November, but this was our first deep dive into it since it was confirmed. Sledgehammer Games' Michael Condrey posted a video on Twitter from the Churchill War Rooms in London ahead of the stream and said the team had travelling the world to conduct research for the game.
We spoke to Sledgehammer Games ahead of the livestream, so check out our in depth feature on the game right here. "The first time a lot of us played Call of Duty it was a World War 2 game, so what we're doing here harkens back to the early days," says Glen Schofield, co-founder and general manager of Sledgehammer Games.
"We're following a squad in the first infantry," adds studio head and Sledgehammer's other co-founder Michael Condrey, "but we're telling a global and diverse story. We're telling the story of the men and women who fought. You'll experience the war through the eyes of the French resistance, through the British and Canadian troops. You'll play women hero characters in every mode of the game. You'll see a diverse ethnic cast throughout the game."
Sledgehammer Games co-developed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward before going to make 2014's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
