After several weeks of rumours and leaks, Activision has officially announced Black Ops 4 as this year's Call of Duty game. However, a community reveal event will take place on Thursday, May 17 where Activision and Treyarch will likely show off the game for the first time to the world. Following the darker approach of the Black Ops series, we can see there is a psychological element present; one that will inevitably affect the gameplay of the first-person shooter.
That is all of the official information known about the game at the moment. The teaser also hints at the fan-favourite "Zombies" mode.
According to a report from CharlieIntel, the "Call of Duty" profile login site was updated recently, and it now allows players to link their Blizzard Battle.net accounts with their "Call of Duty" accounts.
No news on whether Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on Nintendo Switch as of yet.
Out shooter is expected on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Some may think a Call of Duty release for Oct. 12 is early, given the franchise's history of releasing games in late October or November. The publisher has even given the game an earlier release date than usual, in an effort to get out before Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2, which is expected to dominate holiday sales charts. If there is any game that could make Call of Duty sweat this year, it's Red Dead.
Official confirmation of the new game came on March 8, when Activision issued the following statement: 'The next title in the Call of Duty franchise will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4!' He recently moved to California to pursue whatever future endeavors were there.
