Seems like we should have more respect for rumors and leaks after all. Following a great deal of anticipation ever since this year’s COD entry was teased to be Treyarch’s Black Ops offering, publisher Activision has confirmed that 2018’s COD entry will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is scheduled for October 12 this year. This proves that all the leaks and rumors so far were certainly right.
Neither Treyarch nor Activision has shed light on any details of the game. Having said that we are still ahead of what the game’s offering will be, there’s no information about the story, characters, or the specific features. The announcement is primarily a confirmation with a release date of the long-anticipated title, along with a teaser trailer.
COD fans don’t have to wait too long to get the first look, as there would be a live reveal event coming up on May 17 where the Activision will reveal the game publicly. The past few years have witnessed developer Treyarch to be in charge of all the COD: Black Ops games and nothing unlike other entries, the Black Ops 4 has been long-rumored to be under development. In fact, we have also seen through our latest report how the NBA superstar James Harden teased the upcoming Black Ops game by wearing a hat donned with an orange logo.
The newly announced title, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, was rumored long before to be this year’s COD entry. What makes Activision rotate between COD studios on three-years cycle is the popularity of Treyarch’s sub-series and 2018 marking the three year time since the previous Black Ops launch. Last year’s Call of Duty: WW2 entry undoubtedly proved that the thing that had begun as a series set during the war has taken a more futuristic form with each later installment.
With the confirmed release date, the power-packed game from Treyarch and Activision will surely take the gaming world by storm upon its release. The game is set to go for the war on PS4, Xbox, and PC. Switch owners will still have to wait for further hopes! Until Activision shares more details on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, here’s the waiting!
