Rumor: Call of Duty 2018 Will Be Black Ops 4

Posted February 07, 2018

Interestingly enough, the game is also coming to Nintendo Switch, complete with DLC, HD Rumble and motion controls support.

Just like sports simulations that receive an annual refresh, gamers already expect a yearly installment from Activision's popular shooter and see a new Call of Duty game.

This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as we need to wait on official news from Activision regarding the future of the series.

Citing multiple sources, Eurogamer says that Black Ops 4 is now being developed by Treyarch, the same studio responsible for the first three Black Ops titles. It was verification of an earlier report from Marcus Sellars, a supposed industry insider who also claimed a Nintendo Switch version of the game is in development.

This tweet was then followed up by a report from Eurogamer, which stated that multiple sources have confirmed Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is indeed in the works at Treyarch studios, with an aim for a late 2018 release. Sadly there's not much else to go on other than it'll feature a modern setting and will keep its 'boots on the ground'. Though this week we've now heard two different sources claim that the next Call of Duty game would be Black Ops 4.

The last Call of Duty game for a Nintendo console was 2013's COD: Ghosts, which launched for Wii U.

The wording of "familiar with COD games" is a bit odd, considering I'm familiar with those games existing but took a years-long break before jumping back in with WWII.

What we don't know are the nitty gritty details at this point.

The teaser campaign for Black Ops 4 shows that it may as well end up on the Switch after all.

"Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" launched in 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
