Fans of the first-person shooter video game franchise, "#Call of Duty," are understandably hyped to see what Activision would be coming up with next for the series this year. There have been a lot of theories and predictions as to the setting for the next game, but none have so far been pinned down.

Activision previously mentioned that it is intent on getting back to its roots, which would provide players with a game that harks back to the original titles that fans know and love. In line with the announcement, some big revelations have recently been dropped on Reddit, which reveals that the company may have been quite serious about its promise to its fans.

Reddit user drops promos

A Reddit user named @rTwGNaywaoaLh dropped a number of promotional materials for what looks to be the next "Call of Duty" title. The alleged promotional posters and covers reveal that the next game will be called "Call of Duty: #World War 2." As the title suggests, the game will be set in the second world war, particularly during the D-day invasion of Normandy and the other skirmishes that followed.

Validity of the leaked posters

The user who posted the images does have a good track record of revealing leaks early on, particularly for "Call of Duty" titles. The same user actually leaked the latest game in the franchise, "Call of Duty: #infinite warfare," last year. A good number of the posts that comes from the user have been proven to be quite accurate.

Another big reason that points to the possible authenticity of the leak is that the posters and covers look to be professionally done.

None of the assets used in the printed media seems to have been taken from other sources, which means that they may have been created by a big studio, i.e. Activision.

Activision's direction with the franchise

If the leaks do turn out to be true, then the World War 2 setting would be a big move for Activision, who has been focusing mainly on modern and future warfare settings. Its latest game, "Infinite Warfare," hadn't really garnered as much praise as was expected. The move to provide an older classic setting would also make sense given the success of the franchise's rival game, "Battlefield 1," from Electronic Arts.
