Call of Duty isn’t just the biggest gaming franchise around, it pretty much is gaming. Year after year since 2005, Infinity Ward and Treyarch have created new entries in the series that go on to sell millions of copies worldwide. While fans are always eager for a new take on their favorite military shooter, Activision has kept a tight lid on its upcoming Call of Duty title. There’s not even any official confirmation that there will be a 2017 game (though come on…of course there’s going to be one). So what details do we know? What rumors and leaks are floating around the internet? What screens and videos from an upcoming title might have accidentally slipped through the cracks? Read on to find out what we might expect from Call of Duty 2017
Return to the WWII era
Call of Duty fans have been clamoring for a return to the WWII era since Call of Duty 2, which was released in 2005. The rumors are that this will be where we go next, but we don’t know for sure yet.
Recent leaks about the game have come from all sides. Some leaked content has originated from the developers, some has come from the publishers and media, others still have been posted by fans of the series on Reddit or other gaming forums. There are even rumors that some players who play on PC may be able to access some of these files without having to hack into anything at all.
Regardless of how they were obtained, this information is helpful in understanding what we can expect when Call of Duty 2017 launches later this year—and it looks like it’ll be worth waiting for!
New connection between Call of Duty games
Call of Duty games have a connection that’s based on setting and time period. The Call of Duty series began in 2003, with the release of Call of Duty. Since then, there have been many different titles that take place in different time periods and settings. In fact, you can find games set during World War II (Call of Duty: World at War), modern times (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2), or even into the future (Call of Duty: Black Ops).
Even though each game is set in a different era and location, it’s still possible for you to connect them if you look closely enough!
More info on setting and time period
There’s been a lot of rumors around Call of Duty 2017, but we can pretty much confirm that it will be set in the modern era. This is because all previous Call of Duty games have been set in this time period, and Activision has made it clear that they want to keep releasing yearly sequels for as long as people will buy them. Most likely, there won’t be a branching narrative between different eras, so don’t expect to play as a soldier from World War II one year and then go back again next year for something like Vietnam War 2: The Return (that could actually happen though).
However, if you’re hoping for some futuristic warfare with aliens or robots as enemies then think again! Remember how Black Ops II had zombies? Well now its sequel Black Ops III is taking us into space with futuristic soldiers fighting off otherworldly creatures called “The Hive” – they look like giant beetles or ants wearing helmets! But that doesn’t mean we’ll ever see anything like this in future Call of Duty games. It’s more likely that the developers will stick with what works best; i.e., using existing technology rather than creating new stuff just because they can do so thanks to advances in computing power over time
Call of Duty: 2011
Call of Duty 2011 is one of the best games I’ve ever played. It’s unique in a number of ways: its story, how it plays, how you shoot and kill people and even how you die.
The story of Call of Duty 2011 tells the tale of a small group of soldiers who must fight their way through a hostile country to rescue an important person from being captured by enemy forces. You start off as an ordinary soldier but eventually become a hero who saves many lives along the way.
How does this game play? Well, first off there are many different kinds of weapons available for use in combat situations such as pistols or rifles which can be used against other human beings with varying degrees of success depending on what type they carry themselves (such as assault rifles). No matter what weapon they have though they will always go down after being shot once or twice so make sure that whatever gun you choose has enough ammo before each battle starts! Also remember: each person within your squad gets assigned roles based on skillsets so if someone is better at shooting than others then give them more chances than others when deciding whose turn it is next!
When it comes down to killing enemies don’t forget about grenades too since these are very effective tools against large groups standing near each other together especially when paired with machine guns which can fire multiple shots per second without needing reloading time between shots like handguns do.”

Possible November 4, 2017 release date?
You might have heard that Call of Duty 2017 will be released on November 4, 2017. That’s the day before the game’s actual release date of November 3, 2018. A lot of gamers are going to be disappointed when they don’t get their copy of Call of Duty 20th Anniversary Edition until December 5th and find out that it doesn’t include any beta access codes for the new multiplayer mode I’m working on with my partner company (that’s me!).
But don’t worry! The rumors surrounding Call Of Duty 2018’s release date aren’t as bad as you might think—and there are more than enough reasons why we should all sit up and take notice:
- The first two versions were leaked by retailers who had already set up their websites for preorders… but changed them after realizing what they had done (they didn’t actually know about those preorder bonuses).
- Sources in Activision Blizzard have confirmed these dates… which means they’re probably true!
A new take on Modern Warfare?
The last game in the Modern Warfare series, Modern Warfare 2, was released in 2009. Three years later came the game that would change everything: Call of Duty: Black Ops II. While it’s not impossible to expect another Black Ops installment (and a third is rumored for 2017), it’s more likely that this new title will be called something else altogether—either “Modern Warfare 4” or perhaps even “Call of Duty 2017.”
However, there are plenty of other possibilities as well! For example, instead of following up on its futuristic setting by going even further into the future (which has been done before), it could also return to its roots and have a more modern setting with updated graphics. Or maybe they’ll just call it Modern Warfare 4 anyway!
What else could happen?
- Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2 have both been released in the recent past, so it’s possible that we’ll see another take on this era.
- Activision may go back to World War II, or possibly even a futuristic setting like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The most popular game in the series was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, so perhaps Activision will decide to bring us more modern warfare!
We’ll just have to wait and see.
Unfortunately, we have no idea what the next game will be like. We can speculate about it, but until we hear something official from Activision or Sledgehammer Games (if they’re even working on this year’s CoD), there are too many variables that could affect the final product.
What we do know for sure is that Activision loves making money off of Call of Duty games and sells a lot of copies every year. If you want to be one of those people who buys Call of Duty every year, then get ready!
