A YouTuber — “TheFamilyVideoGamers” — has posted a video of what appears to be images of Call of Duty 2017 marketing artwork, some of which appear to be concepts for final art.
The leaked images show that Call of Duty 2017, developed by Sledgehammer Games, will take place during the World War II era.
The images above show artwork that Activision appears to be creating for promotional images for the title. It also appears that Activision has decided to be straightforward with the naming scheme for the game and call it ‘Call of Duty: WWII‘. This would be, probably, the simplest name for a Call of Duty game since before Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Back in 2014, Michael Condrey (Studio Head of Sledgehammer Games), stated that he wanted to see another Call of Duty game set in World War II: “I think a next generation game with the latest production values and robustness in a World War II setting like Band of Brothers would be amazing.”
Furthermore in 2015, Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg, said in an interview that it’s “certainly possible” that there would be another World War II Call of Duty game: “Those kinds of things happen,” Hirshberg said, “so there’s definitely a chasing of innovation and new ideas within a well-worn genre that lead people to similar conclusions like changing time periods. And of course I think that opens up the opportunity for what is old is new again.”
We do caution that, as of now, Activision has not confirmed any of this art work.
Thus far, Activision has only confirmed that this year’s title is developed by Sledgehammer Games. They also said that Call of Duty 2017 title will take ‘Call of Duty back to its roots.’
