Call of Duty is going back to its roots.
Fans of the long-running first-person shooter series, which has gotten modern and futuristic facelifts in its most recent installments, will be taken back to the setting where it all began: World War II.
Call of Duty: WWII will return players to the international conflict of the 1940s, the tableau of the original 2003 game. The franchise's last foray into the time period was 2008's Call of Duty: World at War, before continuing the modernizing trend with titles such as Modern Warfare, Advanced Warfare and the Black Ops trilogy.
The latest game is slated for release this November and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind both Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare. The game's official website will host a live-stream event at 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday, April 26, to debut a trailer and reveal specific details about the upcoming game. Stay tuned to Heat Vision for the latest.
