Today Activision is hosting a livestream event to officially lift the lid on this year's Call of Duty entry. After the last few instalments pushed the action further and further into the future, the company has decided to turn back the clock and return to World War II, the conflict in which the very first Call of Duty game was based.

Call of Duty: WWII is a dead cert for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but the big question for Nintendo fans relates to a Switch version. Given that Activision previously supported the Wii U with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, it's not out of the question that a Switch edition of this new game will make the cut - although it should be noted that the Wii U Call of Duty games were based on the PS3/Xbox 360 code as those two systems were still current at that time. Any Call of Duty for Switch would require quite a bit of additional work, one would imagine.

Still, with the Switch selling like hot cakes early on Activision will be mindful of missing out on potential sales, and while there's a power gap between the console and its rivals, a scaled-back port may be possible.

We'll know for sure later today (6PM BST time, 1PM ET) but in the meantime, cast your vote in the polls below to let us know your prediction and stance.
