If this is true, then rumors of Activision heading back to making awesome World War games is going to happen soon.
During its earning call, the company noted that the futuristic games didn’t resonate well with its audience, and that “traditional combat will once again take center stage.” Battlefield already this is with their Battlefield 1 game set in the First World War.
So, let’s wait and see if these reports hold any water since the company is known for revealing games in April or May.
