This past year’s Call of Duty game, Black Ops Cold War has been a big hit with fans, selling millions of copies and becoming a real force to be reckoned with on next-gen consoles. But for
the next entry in the series, it appears that Activision could once again be going back to World War II.
A report from the website Modern Warzone indicates that Sledgehammer Games, who haven’t made a Call of Duty game since WWII in 2017, is hard at work on a follow-up to that game, set to release later this year. Right now, the project is under the name Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard, though that could change before release.
However, it’s not entirely a sequel to WWII. Instead, according to the site, “the entire game takes place in an alternate timeline where 19845 wasn’t the end of World War II.” This could open the floodgates for an original storyline, and, more importantly, a great return for Zombies.
Now keep in mind that these details are not confirmed by Activision, so we’ll have to wait and see what they announce in the months ahead. Still, it would be great to see a return to World War II territory – not to mention Sledgehammer Games back at the helm.
We’ll let you know once the game is confirmed. In the meantime, check out the classic trailer for WWII below.
