With Activision and Sledgehammer Games set to lift the lid off of Call of Duty: WW2 in the coming days, fans are now clamouring for any and all information regarding the game’s beta and release date.
Both will surely be announced during the official unveiling on April 26, 2017, at 10am PST (April 27, 3am AEST), but a fresh new leak already has Call of Duty diehards marking dates down in their calendars.
A piece of promotional material sent to fan site Charlie Intel reveals a number of juicy tidbits.
Firstly, it appears as though the release date for Call of Duty: WW2 will be November 3, 2017.
Secondly, it appears as though a “private beta” (obviously a play on words) is planned for anyone that pre-orders the game. For more information on the game’s pre-order status, check out this article.
