The largest cinema screen in Britain i.e. BFI IMAX revealed the intentions of Call of Duty going back to its roots.
“Call Of Duty World War 2” world-wide reveal took place at London on April 26th 2017. The official world-wide reveal trailer of COD WW2 started with Normandy Invasion (commonly known as D-Day, which is one of the most deadly battles of World War 2 that took place in June 1944) with “Winston Churchill’s” most iconic speech of World War 2, in background.

As per the words by ERIC HIRSHBERG “No battle was too big, No detail was too small”, it pretty much signifies Activision’s intention to make most immersive World War 2 universe ever.
