Activision formally launched the "Call of Duty: World War II" that is being developed by Sledgehammer Games.
According to Polygon, Activision released the "Call of Duty: World War II" during a brief announcement and it stated that Sledgehammer Games has developed the video game. The company also revealed a promotional image but then it did not give a release date yet. Nevertheless, it was perceived that the firm generally launches "Call of Duty" games in November, after its spring announcements.
Activision also said that more details about the "Call of Duty: World War II" will be divulged during the forthcoming game's Worldwide Reveal live stream on Wednesday, April 26. The event will be featuring Sledgehammer Games co-studio heads and founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield. The patrons can tune in to be able to get first look at the game and get information on the studio's vision for the upcoming game.
Furthermore, Forbes has noted that Sledgehammer was also the one that created the "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare." It was also noted that prior to "Advanced Warfare," the developer had been working on a Vietnam-era video game which was eventually scrapped when Activision endorsed the studio to one of its three regular "Call of Duty" developers.
For reference, the series started in 2003 with "Call of Duty," that is also set in World War II. After that, four more games shadowed covering the same time period, ending in 2008's "Call of Duty: World at War." Since then, the franchise has concentrated on other time periods, containing the 1960s and the future.
The Sledgehammer was built in 2009 by past members of Visceral Games, which is best known for the sci-fi horror action-adventure series "Dead Space." The game developer backed to 2011's "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3," which was established by Infinity Ward. The Foster City, California, company then went on to produce "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" in 2014. Since then, Sledgehammer has been working on this new title.
