It’s been rumoured for months, but now it seems we may have some actual evidence that the Call of Duty franchise will head back to its World War II roots, if these newly surfaced images are to be believed.
A YouTuber called TheFamilyVideoGamers says in a video that he was handed a heap of supposed promotional material from an anonymous source, confirming – what many already believed – that Call of Duty 2017 will be set in the Second World War. You can check out his video just below.
There’s already plenty of evidence to suggest that this year’s COD will be set during WWII. Not least thanks to an earnings call Activision had in February where they said they would take the series back “to its roots” following the critical backlash from Infinite Warfare‘s futuristic setting.
Despite this, the images should obviously be taken with a generous pinch of salt. It would be easy to mock up some “leaked images” if you have a few Photoshop hours under your belt, and people have already speculated heavily on the game’s setting.
Anyway, take a look at the pictures and make your own mind up. Regardless of the legitimacy, they’ve certainly got people talking.
