After the release of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Activision and Sledgehammer Games had high hopes for the franchise. However, the huge storm of negative reviews and widespread criticism, and the players’ longing for a more ‘to the roots’ story line, the developers had to act fast. COD:IW had proved to be a fun but monotonous shooter, with not much to distinguish itself from elements of COD: Black Ops 3.
Much to the joy of the COD fanbase, the developers now plan to return the franchise to its former glory, through a new segment, Call Of Duty : WWII. The release date and official artwork is still unconfirmed, but owing to the bunch of previously leaked promo material, legitimacy might exist to some extent.
A recent leak of the alleged promotional poster for the game has sparked up new rumors. The poster was possibly first spotted by a YouTuber, and then was posted to a subreddit.
