With “Call of Duty: WW2” the series returns to their roots and sends you into the battles of the Second World War. Further parts with a classic setting could follow, as the Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg stressed. But he did not want to chisel in stone.
After the “Call of Duty” series has drifted more and more into the future in the past years, the upcoming “Call of Duty: WW2” is again dedicated to the past. The title puts you in the Second World War, after the competitor “Battlefield 1” one year before with the WW1 shooter “Battlefield 1” great success could celebrate.
According to official data, as early as 2014, the new “Call of Duty” was going to play in the Second World War. Based on this, the settings of the next two or three parts should also be fixed. While Activision had not yet wanted to reveal whether we would be driven back into the past in the 2018 or 2019 “Call of Duty” shooters, such a scenario was not fundamentally ruled out.
“Well, you know I can not reveal things that are going to happen in a couple of years, but no, I do not necessarily see it as a one-time thing, I think the Second World War and even broader the historical settings Is a very rich territory, and I think there are all ways that this will become an area we are exploring more than once, “said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision.
In the past, “Call of Duty: WW2” has already been spoken of three coming parts of the series, but it is not clear in which direction it will go. The First and Second World Wars are occupied with “Battlefield 1” and “Call of Duty: WW2”. The wars in Vietnam, Korea or Iraq would still be offered. Which setting would you prefer?
