With Call of Duty: WW2 set to launch towards the end of this year, we still don’t know much about what Sledgehammer Games has in store for us with its latest game. That’s all about to change, however, as the developer has announced a new livestream series, which will focus on the making of Call of Duty.
The series of episodes will be broadcast on the Sledgehammer Games Facebook page and will feature co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield alongside a range of other developers. The first Call of Duty: WW2 stream will kick off today, May 23rd, and is set to feature animation director Chris Stone, as well as campaign creative director Brett Robbins.
An in-depth look at the game has been promised, alongside the mentions of some ‘special guests’:

Streaming will begin at 3pm PT, (6pm ET/11pm BST) and will likely feature fan interactions, judging by the Facebook Live format. As of right now, we’ll have to wait and see whether any new gameplay footage is broadcast, but we’re sure to see some substantial reveals made as the series progresses.
Since the announcement of the new Call of Duty, it seems that much of the negativity surrounding the Call of Duty series has evaporated, leaving a lot of fans excited at the prospect of another excellent historic shooter. There has certainly been a reduction in the amount of upset from fans, and although Infinite Warfare performed well on paper, the game’s reveal trailer received millions of dislikes on YouTube when it launched alongside Battlefield 1 footage.
In other Call of Duty: WW2 news, the upcoming Second World War title could be coming to the Nintendo Switch, according to recent rumors surrounding Canadian developer Beenox. Although no port has been announced so far, a tweet showing the Beenox team alongside army members seems to have made fans suspicious that one could be in development, allowing Nintendo fans to join the fight when the game launches later this year.
Call of Duty: WW2 is slated to release on November 3, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
