Call of Duty is returning to its roots.
The next game in the series will highlight a first-person shooter in the middle of World War II called ‘Call of Duty: WWII’.
The firm teased fans on Friday with a promotional image that revealed its plans for the game’s Worldwide Reveal livestream on April 26.
When Call of Duty first hit the masses in 2003 it was set in World War II, Polygon reported.
After becoming a hit, Sledgehammer Games continued the series with similar themes set during different time periods that ranged from the 1960s to the far distant future.
The full announcement states: ‘Call of Duty returns to its World War II roots with Call of Duty: WWII, developed by Sledgehammer Games.
‘More details are incoming during the game’s Worldwide Reveal livestream on Wednesday, April 26 featuring Sledgehammer Games co-studio heads and founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield.
‘Fans will be able to tune in to get a first look at Call of Duty: WWII and get intel on the studio’s vision for the game.’
Since Call of Duty made its debut, some have questioned whether the violence was transcending into the real world.
However, a pair of psychologist have recently discovered that countries that play the game are some of the safest around the globe.
In a new book, titled ‘Moral Combat’, psychology experts Dr Patrick Markey and Dr Christopher Ferguson claim that ‘the war on violent video games is wrong.’
