The Call of Duty series moved on from World War 2 many years ago. However, some former developers of Call of Duty are heading back to WW2 with their new multiplayer shooter.
Their game, World War Toons, puts a cartoonish spin on the conflict. Players can choose between different classes for their character and their tank before heading into battle.
"Change infantry classes on the fly as you battle for supremacy as either the cunning Officer, the stalwart Soldier or the rocket-launching Heavy," said Reload Studios on the game's website. "Each infantry class will augment your tank class in unique ways so pick a tank that best suits your play style in the battlefield. Will it be something monstrous like the Tiger or the more agile Sherman Firefly?"
Reload Studios is designing World War Toons with virtual reality in mind. If you're a traditionalist, though, you can play the game without a headset. WWT's platforms weren't announced yet but the game's being developed with Unreal Engine 4. UE4 is supported by PC and consoles so there's a chance PS4 and Xbox One gamers could play this someday.
Many members of Reload's development team came from Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward. CEO James Chung and COO Taehoon Oh were both artists for multiple COD games. Lead designer Chetan Bedi served as designer on Modern Warfare 3 and Ghosts.
Reload didn't announce a release date for World War Toons yet. The trailer is composed of pre-alpha footage, though, so we may have to wait awhile before this game hits stores.
Call of Duty, meanwhile, hasn't shown any signs of a World War 2 return. Activision recently announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, which will take the game into a "dark" futuristic setting. If you're looking to kill Nazis, you'll have to rely on Reload Studios and other developers instead.
