So it wasn't a huge surprise that a fourth entry would be on the way, following 2015's Black Ops III. If you want to check out a preview of the calling card, you can do so in a tweet from the official Treyarch Twitter account below. Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now in development and that the title is going to be released later this year.
Following months of speculations and potential leaks, Activision and Treyarch have finally confirmed that they are indeed releasing "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" this year.
Activision and Treyarch are set to come out with more details on May 17 during a live-streamed Community Reveal Event, so it is possible to learn more then.
As seen in a report from Kotaku, Activision declined to comment when asked about a potential Switch release. Activision released Destiny 2 exclusively on Blizzard App and there were plans to move all future Activision games to Blizzard App for PC players. 2015's Black Ops III is still being updated, having received a new Infected game mode recently as well as a new Redwood Snow map. For the first time in many years new Call of Duty will go on sale not in November. We'd expect it will also be enhanced for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. There's no mention yet if there will be a Nintendo Switch version of the game.More news: Biplab Deb takes oath as Chief Minister of Tripura
That is all of the official information known about the game at the moment.
Looking forward to Black Ops IIII?
Usually, the Call Of Duty series releases around the start of November, but moving to October 12th clearly is created to stay away from the 26th October release of Red Dead Redemption 2. It will also be coming earlier than usual with a release date of October 12th, 2018.
