Late last month, Activision Blizzard (ATVI) formally revealed its upcoming Call of Duty game.
It is known as Call of Duty: WWII. After a long string of Call of Duty titles set in either modern or futuristic settings, Activision Blizzard is doing what it said it would back on its February earnings call. It is taking the franchise “back to its roots.”
Here is I think that this title has the potential to rejuvenate the company’s Call of Duty sales.
On Activision’s February call, Activision Blizzard COO Thomas Tippl said that the 2017 Call of Duty game will “go back to its roots.” And now we know that the setting is World War 2. This is quite literally that “traditional combat will once again take center stage.”
By ditching the space theme and going back to “traditional combat,” the new game should prove a breath of fresh air for gamers. Many were disappointed and put off by Infinite Warfare.
