This is going to stomp everything in its path. I know plenty of people who haven't bothered with FPSs or even games in general, who kind of drifted off after BF3 and are waiting for another WW2 BF. The appetite for WW2 at the minute is extremely strong. It's only going to get stronger, the highly anticipated third in the 'Band of Brothers' universe is currently in post-production too, it's probably going to be 2003-2006 all over again.
COD:WW2 was such a let down. All it has really done is grease us up for the main course.
I'm a PS4 player, with this news, I don't know if I'll ever find room for BAT1944.
