The previous leaks suggesting a World War 2-themed Call of Duty game have been confirmed by Activision after the publisher teased a full reveal for Call of Duty: WW2 on Twitter.

Sledgehammer Games previously brought us Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which remains the highest selling entry in the franchise.

He did note it will be interesting to see how Sledgehammer Games will turn back the clock with the multiplayer setting of "Call of Duty: WWII", considering the sci-fi settings had wall running and double jumping. According to a photo from reddit user braderz_12, Call of Duty gamers will also be able sign-up to receive in-game loot such as "calling cards" and redeem codes for more awards.

"Call of Duty: World War 2" is now official, proving every rumour to be true.

A live stream has been scheduled on the official "Call of Duty" website on April 26 at 10 a.m. PT and 1 p.m. ET. There has been much media hype expected to give an extra edge to the game and make it another success from the makers.

According to NPD Group, the Call of Duty franchise has been the top selling PC and console game in the U.S. for a whopping seven years. Aside from the name and developer, Activision hasn't revealed anything about the shooter.

The leaked images originally appeared on a small YouTube channel called TheFamilyVideoGamers and since the reveal, Eurogamer has verified that these images do indeed relate to this year's new Call of Duty game.

There has been a lot of speculation that the game will revisit the premise of the first two Call of Duty Games set place during the Invasion of Normandy, better known as D-Day.

Among other relevant information, we also find that, similarly to what happened with the latest headlines, pre-order of the game will grant access to a closed beta to be held before the final release. Sledgehammer Games will be the one to develop the new game.

The Call of Duty: WWII release date is in November 2017 unless there is some kind of massive change to the development and release cycle.
