'Call Of Duty' Leak Shows A Return To WWII

It looks like Activision can't keep a secret this week. First, the release date for Destiny 2 is revealed, now it appears a new leak is focused on another popular title from the publisher. Coming out of The Family Video Gamers channel this week, it appears Activision will be taking Call Of Duty back to its roots by returning the game to World War II. Yes, that old wartime gaming trope that everyone including your sister has beaten a dozen times over is coming back to one of the longest running titles in modern gaming.

This video shows off several images of the next title in the series, yet to be named but if they are legit, it signals a return to the real-life conflict that fueled the first three games in the series. Honestly, I wish this wasn't so. Not like I'd like to see CoD take a tour of all the conflicts we've ever had in American history, but it would be better if the game kept doing original material rather than go to an old chestnut where you spend your days shooting everyone who speaks German. At the very least it gives us something to look forward to at E3 as it appears these is the kind of materials you'd probably see on the convention floor. We'll probably know more in June.
