2016's "Call of Duty" was set in space, in a near-future that leaned more sci-fi than gritty realism. Share your opinion with us in the comment section below.

Call of Duty 2017 is happening. Players will also enjoy exciting new ways to interact and socialize with their friends and the Call of Duty community. We are sure they must have something to offer their fans.

The studio calls it its biggest ever game. Much more to come.

The worldwide reveal is Wednesday, April 26. This may be a live stream event on YouTube. Though Call of Duty: WWII was likely in development before Infinite Warfare launched, feedback from fans who were disappointed in Infinite Warfare possibily solidified Activision's decision to revisit a setting that has worked so well in the past. It also gives the release date as November 3, which is exactly when the games are usually released. Typically the game arrives near the beginning of the month.

However, sales have generally fallen off since the franchise's heyday, when every annual release would break entertainment industry sales records. Interestingly, there was no projected release date for the upcoming shooter.

It follows a recent online leak, with an image of an alleged promotional poster for Call of Duty: WWII.

Trump aims for a big hit as 100 days tick down
U.S. president Donald Trump has pledged to mark his 100th day in office with a "BIG" rally in Pennsylvania. Trump didn't elaborate on what the rally in Pennsylvania will entail.

Multiplayer has been confirmed in the material to be "grounded, fast-paced combat".

We, along with many, many others, are eagerly counting down the hours already. The Activision CFO specifically calls out, "traditional combat", in an announcement.

Call of Duty: WWII will mark the series' first return to the World War II period since Treyarch's World at War in 2008.

The thing is, World War II is not the answer.

Call of Duty is returning to its roots as a World War II game.

The odds of a Call of Duty: WWII beta are very good. Hence, we can be hopeful about getting early access without having to secure an early copy. The WWII setting was instrumental in the franchise's success in the early 2000s.
