It won't be a big surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to rumors or retailer leaks, but Call of Duty is going back to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII.

That's... literally all they've said, except that it's being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The worldwide reveal is scheduled for April 26 at noon central time, which is presumably when they'll show the first gameplay.

Call of Duty began as a World War II-focused franchise, but the last game in the series to take place during that era was 2008's Call of Duty: World at War. Most of the more recent titles have featured modern or futuristic combat.

One of the series' chief competitors, Battlefield, recently went even further back in time with Battlefield 1, which takes place in an alternate-history version of World War I.

The Call of Duty: WWII livestream will take happen on callofduty.com.
