Call of Duty: World At War 2 Box Art Appears, But Is It Real?

Placehold cover art for an Xbox One version of Call of Duty: World at War 2 has appeared on Amazon, potentially hinted that Treyarch and Activision may feel it’s time to go back to World War II.

The Call of Duty games have now moved to a three year development cycle, with Sledgehammer Games to release Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare later this year. Infinity Ward put out the disappointing Call of Duty: Ghosts last year, which means in 2015 it’s Treyarch’s turn to step up to the plate once more.

World at War often doesn’t get the credit it deserves, and I for one would love to  see Call of Duty head back to its roots in World War II.

However, there are some problems with rumour.

First of all while this image was supposed to have appeared on Amazon, there’s zero pictures of the original listing to be found, which is unusual these days as most people stumbling across such things take a screengrab. It also seems highly unlikely that even a placeholder would appear for a game that presumably wouldn’t be announced until almost a year from now.

The only two places the box art has appeared is Gamer Headlines and PSU, neither of which have a link to where they found the image, although it seems that PSU got it straight from Gamer Headlines. So where the hell did it come from? A quick search on the magical Interwebz reveals nothing.

For those reasons I’m deeply suspicious, and believe that in all likelihood this is bogus, despite hoping against all hope that it’s genuine.

  1. Regardless of whether or not Treyarch makes World At War II next, I do hope they make some game that is set in the past. Now that the series has 3 developers, it would be cool to have Sledgehammer make futuristic war games, Infinity Ward make modern war games and Treyarch make historical war games.
