There's a preeeetttttty big debate in The COD community as to whether the brand should continue to produce games of futuristic warfare or bring it back to their grass roots with games exhibiting battles from history's past. Personally speaking, I find the idea of futuristic warfare in via video games to be extremely frightening. I don't like to revisit wars that actually happened, let alone conjure images of the wars to come, but to each their own.
Players of the beloved game aren't really getting much choice anyhow, as COD announced earlier this month, circa last week, that the next installation to the series will be Call of Duty: WWII.
The announcement came with some other details: According to USA Today, video game publisher Activision Blizzard confirmed the next chapter in the blockbuster video game franchise will take place during World War II, where the series got its start. Little has been revealed about the game, beyond a teaser image on the Call of Duty website announcing a "worldwide reveal" on April 26. The World War II game will be developed by Sledgehammer Games, which worked on 2014's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
As per the description on the Call of Duty YouTube Channel:
Over two years in the making, Sledgehammer Games delivers a gritty, personal experience in the setting of the largest worldwide conflict in history to a new gaming generation in Call of Duty: WWII. Play through the story of ordinary men turned soldiers in the 1st Infantry Division as they fight to preserve freedom in the face of tyranny.
