In a conference call to investors on Thursday, the publisher's chief executive, Eric Hirshberg, and chief operating officer, Thomas Tippl, both acknowledged that last year's space-based Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare had commercially underperformed.

As such, this year "traditional combat will once again take center stage", Tippl said. Call of Duty 2017 is being developed by Sledgehammer Games as part of Activision's three-year, three-studio development cycle. Even though the COD 2017 release date is months away, we already know a lot about the new 2017 Call of Duty game thanks to Activision's latest announcement.

I also think it's important to point out that fans weren't unhappy with Infinite Warfare's setting so much as they were experience science-fiction setting fatigue by 2016. The Activision CFO specifically calls out, "traditional combat", int eh announcement. Sledgehammer Games produced the game as its second Call of Duty game. A game being set during the Cold War would be awesome, but details are still very minimal. The game has been in development for roughly two years and we should get our first glimpse of what to expect sometime this spring.
