Call of Duty: World at War is one of the most praised first-person shooter video games of its time. Developed by Treyarch, the game is generally considered to be the fifth mainstream installment in the most critically acclaimed Call of Duty video game series. Just like other early iterations in the series, Call of Duty: World at War focuses on World War II-era warfare. The game was released back in 2008, and Activision, the publisher of the series, never spoke of a sequel, but now looking at a leaked Xbox One box-art of Call of Duty: World at War 2, it seems like something is really going on at the backend.
Call of Duty: World at War 2 Xbox One Box-Art Appears as a Placeholder on Amazon – Treyarch Working on 2015 Sequel?
For past few months, talks and rumors about a supposed sequel to Call of Duty: World at War called Call of Duty: World at War 2 have mutely been germinating across the online gaming community, but now it looks like one of the most important parts of the picture has been uncovered by this allegedly leaked Call of Duty: World at War 2 Xbox One box-art that is reported to have appeared on Amazon as a placeholder for the Treyarch’s sequel to 2008’s popular shooter video game title.
Before going on, one thing is for sure, if Call of Duty: World at War 2 really exists, it is not going to come out until 2015, because currently, Sledgehammer Games is already working on the latest installment in the Call of Duty series known as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which is due to launch on November 14, 2014. Also, Activision has some sort of deal with Sledgehammer Games, Infinity Ward and Treyarch, which allows each developer to take turns and work on a three-year Call of Duty development plan, so with Sledgehammer developing Call of Duty for this year, we can expect a game from Treyarch in 2015.
And even if Call of Duty: World at War 2 is the upcoming next game in the series, why would the developer bother to make up a not-very-professional looking Xbox One box-art of the game too early when gamers are already waiting for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Considering the unknown source and the looks of the box-art itself, it is hard to believe that this has anything to do with something official.
We hunted around a little bit and the only source for this Call of Duty: World at War 2 Xbox One box-art that we could find was GamerHeadlines, and even they don’t have a link to the original origin of the placeholder on Amazon. What do you think? Does this box-art has anything to do with the next Call of Duty title that will be announced and probably released in 2015? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
