Despite all the info we’ve already got about the upcoming Call of Duty WWII, there are still a lot of questions that have yet to be answered. History buffs are curious exactly which battles and offensives are going to be included in the campaign, which locations we’ll be seeing in multiplayer, and exactly how Sledgehammer is going to tackle some of the very sensitive subject matter of World War 2.
It has now been confirmed by Sledgehammer that the game will feature Operation Cobra, which would go on to become the largest aerial assault to ever take place. It was two-pronged, with troops either on the ground or in a bomber. It’s still unclear exactly which role the player will have in this aerial assault, but it’s sure to be one of the epic set piece moments in the game.

“We’re going to places like Operation Cobra, which is the largest areial bombardment. We go to the Battle of the Bulge where the temperature is -10. We go to Paris to see it occupied. It’s just a different, surreal world there,” revealed Glen Schofield of Sledgehammer games in an interview with GameStop.
Call of Duty World War 2 will be hitting PC and consoles on November 3rd of this year. We’ll keep you posted with any other leaks, interviews, or press releases in the meantime as we get closer to launch and more is revealed about this hugely anticipated title that aims to please current CoD fans while also offering something fresh for those who used to play but have fallen off over the years.
Glen also revealed that a character in the game is named after his father, who passed away during the creation of this game. It’s clear that Sledgehammer is taking this assignment very seriously, and will honor history and the soldiers who gave their lives to protect our world.
