In a development that's becoming oddly routine for Activsion, promotional materials appear to have given more details on Call of Duty: WW2 ahead of its official debut event. This time it's only a few minor details, including a likely release date.
The leak appeared on the game's dedicated subreddit (via Polygon). The release date is slated for Friday, November 3, which would fit with Call of Duty's typical November-Friday launches. Other details include an original story for the cooperative mode, and private beta access offered as a pre-order incentive. It also boasts what you'd expect from a Call of Duty game set in World War 2, like the Normandy invasion, war on the European front, and "the bonds of camaraderie."
It all seems of-a-type for a Call of Duty game that promised to go back to its roots, even if the name sounds what a player would Google if they couldn't remember the actual title. Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games are planning a livestream event this Wednesday, where we'll likely see these details along with the first footage of the upcoming game.
So far all indications are that the companies are playing it safe by going back to familiar territory, but who knows? It has been almost a decade since the series took place in the World War 2, so there's plenty of room for it to explore new systems that have developed since then. At the very least, it will probably be the prettiest (and/or most horrific) Normandy invasion we've seen.
