It seems that the next title from Sledgehammer Games is most likely to be Call of Duty World War 2, this game will take place in historical, setting of the World War 2. This change from the modern sci-fi and zombie apocalypse genre might just be the fresh take we need.
It has been a long time since we have fought for a real cause, not to save our life from flesh-eating zombies or from robots hell-bent on world domination.
It is about time someone took us back to classic age, where it all began, Countries fighting each other for supremacy, choosing a side, increasing their territory, creating bases and spending all their resources for war.
No extraterrestrial threat, no laser weapons, and no nano suits, just man-made conflict.
Players will suit up in a plain old army uniform, with a worn out rifle, and instincts to guide them in combat. Mud splashing everywhere, taking cover from enemy fire, calling for air support, and following your brother in arms into battle.
Maybe they should focus on aspects of World War 2, that we have not seen before just like in the movies, they should focus on different countries and their standing on the war.
A story from their perspective how their armies dealt with the threat, all their sacrifices all their hardships. With so much material to choose from, I am sure they will not have any trouble keeping things fresh, or better to say in keeping things old.
Youngsters these days are not much familiar with World War 2, it is an old concept but it has not been seen for a long time, hence making it a fresh one.
So in my opinion, this is a very good idea that Call of Duty World War 2 is going back to the historical period.
