No mission too difficult. No sacrifice too great. Duty first!
Call of Duty: WWII follows the story of a squad “1st Infantry Division” in the final years of WWII from 1944 to 1945. It takes place at a time when the Allied forces were making massive advances to Germany. You will be fighting your way through occupied France, Belgium, and across the Rhine into Germany and you will witness your squad’s remarkable journey of personal growth and heroism as they take radical innovative steps to take down the German occupied territories.
Sledgehammer Games Co-Founder, Studio Head Michael Condrey said this:
“This is based on one of the most monumental moments in human history, and we get to honor and respect that global sacrifice, to honor the men and women who fought for freedom on all fronts, on a global scale”.
Sledgehammer Games Co-Founder, Studio Head Glen Schofield said this:
Schofield said that the main character is named after his father, who passed away during production.
“The story Call of Duty: WWII follows a global and diverse cast, but for me, it honors my father Ronald “Red” Daniels and his squad, and not just what they went through from a global perspective, but what they went through personally. We like to tell a story within a story, and this is no different.”
