According to Kotaku, a man who resides in Terre Haute, Indiana has been charged with theft and “offense against intellectual property” for selling PlayStation 4 copies of popular games – including Call of Duty: WWII.

Apparently, the man stole the games from a nearby Sony DEDC factory in Terre Haute, though, oddly enough, he didn’t work there. It’s there that Sony produces a number of CD, DVD and Blu-Ray discs, though there are other plants where they do so.

A report from WTHITV notes that the man was busted during a routine traffic stop, where police found a number of copies of both Call of Duty and Madden NFL 18 in his car.

So, it turns out that he’s been taking these games and selling them for $45 apiece on eBay since earlier in the month. But here’s the thing – he doesn’t work at the factory, so police aren’t certain where he was able to get them. They’re currently checking into the matter, alongside Sony.

Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3rd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

UPDATE: Oct-21-2017

Activision’s upcoming shooter Call of Duty: WWII will give players an inside look at the brutalities and consequences of war, but one man is facing his own battle in the real-world over the game. According to a report from Indiana’s local WTHI TV news, a Terre Haute resident has been arrested for the theft and sale of stolen PlayStation 4 copies of the unreleased game.

Dshaye Towles, the man in question, has been charged with a misdemeanor for the theft of the games, but also faces one count of felony for “offense against intellectual property.” While the alleged seller could have asked for top-dollar, he apparently only sold copies on eBay for $45 each.

While the report doesn’t detail how Towles could have gotten copies of the game, as the DADC facility did not previously employ him, Sony’s factory in Terre Haute was recently burglarized. Many copies of the shooter and Madden 18 were stolen from the company’s building in early October on the same day. Towles is set to appear before a judge in court next week.

While the upcoming World War II game hasn’t faced anything as severe as this recent legal matter, there have been plenty of leaks. In early October, Reddit users leaked a wave of multiplayer details that forced the developer, Sledgehammer Games, to make official announcement earlier than planned. More recently, another leak from the game’s PC beta revealed new customization options for weapons.

Don't forget that weird matchmaking patent Activison made, they'll probably find a way to slip that into CoD some time down the line...
