The rumour mill surrounding this year’s Call of Duty game has really started to pick up over the past few weeks, with the biggest rumour being that the game will see the series return to its original roots, World War II.
A report emerged last month that this year’s game would be set in World War II and contained several images of Call of Duty: WWII, including a logo and box art for the game. Eurogamer later confirmed that these were genuine and linked to this year’s title, adding credibility to the rumour.
Now, another poster has appeared online thanks to Twitter user @akaCanyon, and this time it includes a release date. If the poster is authentic, Call of Duty: WWII could be in gamers’ hands on November 3rd.

Call of Duty games always release in November, so it’s no surprise that the poster shows a November release, even if it does turn out to be a fake. November 3rd is a Friday, which is when games typically release in the UK; however, North America normally sees games release on a Tuesday, with triple A games often being released worldwide on that day.
It’s unclear where the image of the poster has come from, so it is hard to confirm whether or not it is genuine, although the artwork and style of the poster matches that to the poster that surfaced online last month. A comparison of the two posters was uploaded to Imgur which points out the similarities.
Activision have so far failed to comment on the latest rumours, but with E3 2017 just around the corner, we won’t have too much longer to wait before we know whether or not the recent leaks are true.
