It seems that the Activision COO Thomas Tippl wasn’t actually joking about Call of Duty World War II going back to its roots. Back when Tippl said this, it felt a little awkward to hear, but the latest series of game’s leaked artwork seems to be corroborating with what Tippl said.

Here’s what Tippl had to say while on last earnings call:

In 2017, Activision will take Call of Duty back to its roots, and traditional combat will once again take center stage. This is what our dedicated community of Call of Duty players and Sledgehammer Games, developing this year’s title, are the most excited about.

The Leaked artwork appeared on the web a few hours ago and it strongly suggests that the next game in the series is Call of Duty World War II. The artwork further cleared it up because it looks just like what we’ve seen in all the previous games of the series. Check out the following images for Call of Duty World War II leaked artwork.

The artwork first came out when a YouTube channel named as TheFamilyVideoGamers posted it online. The channel claimed to have received the images from an insider source via mail. The following quote shows what was written in the video’s description.

This is Spiderlaw with the Family Video Gamers coming to you with HUGE information regarding future of Call of Duty. Specifically for the franchise’s entry coming this year. Earlier on, Activision stated that they would be going back to their roots. Not much else was stated after that and information regarding the next entry has been little to none. Usually, we don’t know what the next call of duty will be until Activision’s showcase at the annual E3 event. However, an insider of some sorts has emailed me and sent me some pictures that look rather like the real deal. I’m not sure how real this is given that the emailer is anonymous and didn’t provide many details. Perhaps I am not the only one with this info and others have chosen to remain silent.

Based on this kind of evidence, we can safely say that CODWWII is indeed going back to its roots. The game’s leaked images are definitely showing an old school-style artwork. It seems a little bit similar to the previous games of the series. Hopefully, when its out, it’ll add up to the entertainment and high-quality gameplay like all other games in COD series.
