Call of Duty: World War II (abbreviated as COD: WWII) is a first-person shooter developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It is the fourteenth primary installment in the Call of Duty series and the first to be set primarily during World War II since the release of Call of Duty: World at War in 2008. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 3, 2017. It replaces Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as the competitive Call of Duty game for the 2017-2018 Call of Duty esports season, and will be succeeded by Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Call of Duty: WWII removes the advanced system of movement present in the two previous Call of Duty titles, which included double jumping and wall running. Instead, it features a return of traditional movement to the series, taking it back to a "boots on the ground" gameplay style. WWII features a "hit-the-deck" mechanic that allows the player to leap forward and throw themselves on the ground in order to get to cover quickly, similarly to a previous mechanic known as "dolphin dive" in Treyarch's Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

The Call of Duty World League Championship (or CoD Champs for short) will be Activision's 6th annual Call of Duty Championship tournament for the competitive scene, the largest tournament in CoD esports. It is the final tournament of the Call of Duty World League, where the best Call of Duty players from around the world converge and compete against each other. The 2018 edition saw Evil Geniuses crowned the champions, with a roster of Aches, Apathy, Assault and Silly.
