Rumor: Call of Duty 2021 Setting to Be in World War 2

While Activison hasn’t said anything about this year’s Call of Duty other than confirming that it’ll be out later this year, and that it’s not expecting it to sell as well as Black Ops Cold War, a new rumor has surfaced stating that Call of Duty 2021 will be going back to World War 2.

Over on Twitter, reliable Call of Duty leaker Victor_Z teased an image of a hammer emoji coupled with an image of Call of Duty: WWII! The hammer seems to be an indication that Sledgehammer Games is once again helming a new Call of Duty game, and that it’ll continue with its World War 2 setting!

When asked if this meant World War 3, Victor_Z replied with “WW2.”

Mind, this is still a rumor until verified by Activision and/or Sledgehammer Games. Those who don’t play the franchise every year, Call of Duty: WWII was released back in 2017, and was developed by Sledgehammer Games. It went through an odd post-launch cycle wherein major components of its gameplay and class system were changed, following the departure of studio heads Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield to more “executive duties” in Activision, before leaving the company completely without much fanfare.

If Activison continues its Warzone marketing gimmick, expect this year’s Call of Duty reveal to happen with a lot of teases stemming from Warzone, like it was last year with Black Ops Cold War.
