A YouTuber claims to have received box art images from an anonymous source that shows that upcoming Call of Duty game will be Call of Duty: WWII. While TechRaptor is unable to confirm the leak, PCGamesN said in an article that the site was able to authenticate the claim thanks to a “trusted source with insider knowledge.”
The following is from PCGamesN’s article:
Our source told us the game’s title ahead of the leak of this promotional art, corroborating the title seen in the leaked
The original leak, which apparently showed the game’s box art/poster and potential Steelbook designs, came from the YouTuber TheFamilyVideoGamers. In the video revealing the box art, the YouTuber said that he received an email from an anonymous source with the leaked images attached.
TheFamilyVideoGamers showed the email in the video, and this is what the anonymous source wrote in the body of the email:
I found your small youtube channel through instagram. I saw your post about glitching Rave in the Redwoods and thought these images might be something you are interested in. These are legit and from the source, but I cannot state who. All I can say is that they come from someone very close to the project over at Sledgehammer.
The images themselves, posted on Imgur, supposedly reveal that the next Call of Duty will be titled Call of Duty: WWII. The images appear to show scenes depicting D-Day, further reinforcing the idea that the game will be set during WWII.
Over on the new subreddit r/WWII, fans compiled the images for discussion. A moderator for the subreddit wrote that while they are still in the process of verifing the leaks, everything “checks out.” The moderator said that this particular Reddit user has leaked things in the past. The user claims to be the one who originally leaked Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare last year.
If this leak is true, it would line up with things that Activision has said in the past. Activision stated in a recent financial report that they plan to “take [the series] back to its roots.” The original Call of Duty was also set in WWII.
While we don’t know for certain whether the Call of Duty: WWII leak is true just yet, there are a few things that we do know about the game. We know that the game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. We also know that Call of Duty: WWII will probably come out Fall of 2017.
