Why is that so surprising?

To call this approach untypical for Call of Duty leaks would be an understatement. Because previously, previously leaked information was removed from the network as quickly as possible and hushed up.

The leaked material was deleted, but instead of sweeping the information under the carpet, the developers seem to take it easy – and even post an excerpt from the not yet officially published reveal trailer.

In order to they indirectly confirm the credibility the trailer material, which has now been deleted, and the setting in World War II, which has been speculated about for a while.

Of course, this change of course does not go unnoticed by the big names in the CoD community. Tom Henderson confirms on Twitter that the excerpt shown comes from the leaked reveal trailer and adds, “To be honest, I love the way they deal with it.”

A sign for the future?

So it is possible that this is the beginning of a new leak policy around Call of Duty. After all, attack is sometimes the best defense – and if you can’t prevent all advance leaks, it may be the best idea to confirm selected information and take it with humor.
