Randy Pitchford’s Call Of Duty: WW2 Comparison Tweet Causes Self-Inflicted Backlash

Instead of Vandal Pitchfork working on Borderlands 3 or some crappy update for the dying game known as Battleborn, cuck-face Pitchfork wanted to start a little spat between Activision and Sledgehammer’s latest Call of Duty: WW2 title, by comparing Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway to the latter game’s cover… but a backlash spawned out of it.

I know that there are some games out there that feature similar covers and all — some even go to the extent of mirroring another intellectual property to heighten sales of said franchise’s awareness among gamers. Sometimes there are companies that don’t actually mean to steal the cover art of another game, and other times they do.

What I’m trying to say here is that copying is bad, but it’s worse when a copier steals something and then goes to call another copier out without admitting their own theft. Catching wind from publication site GameRant —  we see the backlash take place live and in action with cuck-face Vandal Pitchfork trying to accuse CoD: WW2 of stealing a scene on Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway Special Edition cover, depicting Matt Baker holding his fallen comrades’ dogtags.

A lot of people just thought it was a light poke until he followed it through an hour later with this:

One person by the name of Bustin replied with a tweet that was quite funny, and almost received a blocked for posting up a metaphorical joke that holds some truth, as seen below.

On a serious note other fans started to bring up how Borderlands was a ripoff of Code Hunters and used similar scenes like this:

[Editor’s note: The full story behind Code Hunters was actually covered by Gather Your Party, where the artist revealed in detail how Gearbox had essentially lifted his conceptual assets in order to make Borderlands. The GYP article was one of the only few sites willing to interview the artist about what transpired between the project and Gearbox Software.]

Even though I don’t like CoD and would love to believe that it copied Battlefield 1, the reality is that CoD: WW2 has been in development well before BF1 was announced. What’s more is that this occurrence is more likely a coincidence given how the Brothers in Arms series isn’t all that popular or as hard-hitting a series like Medal of Honor, Call of Duty or Battlefield. In other words, it’s more likely that this image (below) that Twitter user Martin van Vuuren‏ posted happened instead of what Pitchfork is suggesting.

Whether the devs behind Call of Duty: WW2 did commit an act of theft, Pitchfork is in no position to do the slightest of comparisons when, in fact, the Brothers in Arms series is a complete copy of a Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan, I mean there’s even dialogue copied straight from the aforementioned properties.

Reading through fans’ comments on Randy Pitchford’s feed of tweets will certainly give you a good laugh, however, some actual news about Brothers In Arms did unfold in that a new game is in the works, thanks to Twitter user Martino.

Before signing out, and beyond Pitchford’s failed attempt to play the victim of creative infringement, are you excited for a new Brothers in Arms game or no?
