The details regarding the upcoming Call of Duty game have slowly narrowed as time passes. Call of Duty 2017's setting remains unclear until now. Previous reports hint that the franchise will return to its roots. However, neither Activision nor Sledgehammer Games confirmed a specific timeframe. Some fans suspect that the future game title will be set during World War II with modern graphics and visual presentation.
According to Fraghero, fans discovered new clues which might prove their guesses right. Sledgehammer Games Mike Condrey's Bio on Twitter shows four hashtag signs where fans suspect a WWII or World War II translation. Meanwhile, a recently leaked promotional art and the original World War II Call of Duty games apply an identical art-style with an orange-brown sepia filter. By these still images, it might propose that the future Call of Duty title is probably a reboot of the past Call of Duty games.
Nonetheless, there is a big chance that the next Call of Duty game will be set in World War II. Activision usually reveals the name of the game first in late April or early May, which follows the game's official release possibly around November.
It is important to note that current games Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered were revealed by leaks before their official reveal. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was teased by both Activision and Treyarch back in 2015 one week prior to its official introduction in an event.
As previously reported, Activision told investors regarding their plans for the next entry in the series. The franchise has been set in the future since 2012 with Black Ops 2. However, four of the first five games in the series were set in World War II being World at War as the last title.
Call of Duty 2017 is expected to arrive sometime around in November. There are no confirmed platforms as of this writing.
