Back in February, we reported that the new Call of Duty will go “back to its roots”, which hints to a World War II concept that was seen in the earlier games of the series. It was seen as a move to regain the support of fans, especially those who were disheartened by the modern space shooter genre in recent titles. We didn’t hear much from Activision since then, but a recent leak suggests there might be some truth to the theory above.
According to TheFamilyVideoGamers on YouTube, he received a few images from an anonymous source, before posting a video discussing them in detail. Besides suggesting that the new Call of Duty will be set in World War II, these images also point to a possible title for the game, Call of Duty: WWII.
Despite the fact that these images coincide with Activision’s statement that they’ll bring Call of Duty “back to its roots”, we still need to take this piece of information with a grain of salt because the images are unverified. Besides, it seems sketchy that TheFamilyVideoGamers received this leak, considering they only have around 400 subscribers as of press time. Not to mention that going “back to its roots” might mean something else entirely, like a traditional modern military setting.
With that said, we wouldn’t need to speculate much longer as each year’s Call of Duty was traditionally revealed around late April to early May, so it won’t be long before we hear more concrete details about the upcoming shooter. At the very least, we know that the new Call of Duty is developed by Sledgehammer Games, and it’s expected to drop on Christmas 2017.
