Call of Duty: World At War 2 Xbox One box-art appears: Is Treyarch really working on a sequel?

Xbox One box-art, allegedly for Call of Duty: World At War II, has cropped up online and is reported to have appeared on Amazon as a placeholder for developer Treyarch’s next title in the popular shooter series.

Sledgehammer Games is currently working on the latest Call of Duty game with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare due to launch on November 14, 2014. As part of Activision’s deal with Sledgehammer Games, Infinity Ward and Treyarch, each developer will be taking turns creating Call of Duty titles and working on a three-year development plan. This does mean that we should expect a game from Treyarch in 2015.

However, even if Treyarch is working on World At War II it seems way too earlier for a placeholder to appear for a game that wouldn’t likely launch until Q4 2015. We smell a rat regarding this particular piece of artwork, which doesn’t look very professionally put together.

We’ve scouted around and the only source for the box-art is GamerHeadlines who don’t offer up a link to the original placeholder on Amazon. After scouring around, we can’t find the image anywhere else online.

What do you think?
