Call of Duty: WWII has been confirmed; full reveal on April 26

However, Call of Duty enthusiasts already know that Call of Duty: WWII is set to take the franchise back to its roots.

There's been a countless stream of rumours surrounding this year's Call Of Duty entry, but so far only one thing's certain: developer Sledgehammer Games is holding nothing back! It's a bold new direction for Call of Duty, which is no doubt looking to ride the wave of success Battlefield 1 has enjoyed by returning to historical conflicts. Publisher Activision broke the ice on Friday by officially unveiling the name of the next installment in the wildly popular gaming franchise, simply called World War II. Many fans won't be surprised after the disappointing reception of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. One of them will definitely be the next "Call of Duty", known at this time as "Call of Duty: WW2".

After that, starting in 2009, Call of Duty moved to modern warfare.

Activision revealed the game this evening with the first ever official Box Art and an official website as well. There's no release date yet, but we'll get more details during a worldwide premiere livestream on April 26 at 1 p.m. ET.

Unfortunately, Activision didn't reveal much aside from the game's title today.

The franchise's last foray into World War II was 2008's "Call of Duty: World at War".

It seems fitting that Call of Duty is returning to its roots, with Battlefield 1's foray into World War 1 a year ago.
