Call of Duty: WWII will enlist players in an unforgettable journey of brotherhood across the European theater in a mission vital to the success of the Allied powers. The all-new Call of Duty will deliver gritty realism, authenticity and cinematic intensity on an epic scale. Call of Duty: WWII takes the franchise back to World War II for a new generation of consoles.
“More than two and a-half years ago we made the decision to return this franchise to its roots, and Call of Duty: WWII does so in epic fashion,” said Eric Hirshberg, Activision CEO. “The team at Sledgehammer Games is delivering an authentic, gritty, cinematic experience that honors both the epic scale, and the human struggle of the greatest war the world has ever known. This game will let longtime fans experience World War II like never before, and will introduce this historic conflict to a whole new generation of gamers in the process.”
“Call of Duty: WWII has been a journey of inspiration and passion for everyone at Sledgehammer Games. The team is dedicated to delivering on the intense nature of war that focuses on the heroism and sacrifice of soldiers in WWII. Our rich narrative driven, action-packed campaign, and engaging and innovative multiplayer experience immerse players into the boots of a soldier fighting for freedom in a world on the brink of tyranny. And, our co-operative mode delivers a unique storyline that’s an all-new take on Nazi Zombies that we think fans are going to love,” said Michael Condrey, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games.
Added Glen Schofield, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games, “The story we’re telling is unlike anything that we’ve tackled before.
