So let's take a look at the biggest titles on the schedule this year!

Call of Duty: WWII


A lot has been going around about the latest Call of Duty title and we hope to hear a lot more at E3. It's the first time the series will revisit a world war II-era setting since 2008. For it's fans, it's a much needed break from the futuristic direction the series has gone. Possibly one of our favorite features is the inclusion of a "Nazi Zombies" gameplay. This is reported to have a separate story line than Trayarch's Zombies franchise.  Developer Sledgehammer games released a trailer earlier this year and the game is slated for a holiday release in November.

Battlefront 2


Battlefront 2 was a struggle for us due to critical reviews but let's face it, we love it. The originals were absolutely amazing and we were excited for the reboot in 2015. Battlefront 2 is a sequel to the 2015 reboot and is expected to also include a single-player campaign with characters from the prequel and sequel movie trilogies. In addition, it will include the massive 40 vs 40 multi-player battles that the game is known for. Developer EA currently has the game slated for a late holiday release in November of this year.
