Unconfirmed: Call of Duty 2017 Will Take Place During World War II

Several leaked images seem to confirm a more historic setting. 

While Activision and Sledgehammer Games have yet to formally announce the setting for this year’s Call of Duty title, several unverified sources claim the series is going back to its roots by revisiting the World War II setting that helped make it into the multi-billion dollar franchise it is today.

A few days ago, YouTuber “TheFamilyVideoGamers” posted the video seen below which reportedly depicts concept art and marketing materials for a Call of Duty game titled “Call of Duty: WWII.”

Those same images later appeared in this Reddit thread and were apparently provided by the same source who leaked assets for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare prior to its official unveiling. Now, as with any unverified rumors and leaks, it’s important to remember that all of this could wind up being a hoax.

However, it’s hard to refute the fact that two separate sources managed to obtain and share the same images and that one of those sources has proven to be a reliable font of leaked intel in the past. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see whether this year’s Call of Duty game will indeed be taking us back to the chaotic battlegrounds of World War II.
