There’s been an image going around that is portraying an announcement for Call of Duty: World at War 2 on May 4th with an exact time, and presented by Xbox. Well, as we’re all aware, it’s a fake image (unfortunately) and the Twitter user who “leaked” it is basically using it to gain popularity for their Twitter account.
Shinobi602, who has a proven track record with us on providing information regarding upcoming games stated on Twitter that World at War 2 is not happening. The biggest reason for the World at War 2 speculation was based on Facebook posts made by Treyarch to commemorate specific World War 2 dates, which lead people to believe WaW 2 was on the way.
This should be real entertaining since it’s not happening RT @AnonymousUK2015 “More info regarding Call of Duty: World at War 2 coming soon”

In regards to what Treyarch is actually working on, Shinobi told his followers to remember what big games Treyarch has worked on, aside from World at War. This, presumably, points to Treyarch’s Black Ops series.
It’ll be interesting to see what the Call of Duty franchise does this year following the inclusion of Exosuits in Advanced Warfare. Hopefully, with Treyarch developing the next Call of Duty, they’ll bring back some of the more innovating features for the series that were introduced in Black Ops 2, like mild choices that affect the outcome of the story.
I’m also interested to see what Treyarch has accomplished with a three year dev cycle that the Call of Duty franchise has been granted.
For the time being, take all the information above as a rumor. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on anything else we hear regarding Treyarch’s upcoming Call of Duty game, so be sure to follow OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest.
