Call of Duty Black Ops 4: release date, news and rumors

[Update: According to reports from Polygon and Kotaku Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will not have a single-player campaign. This is extremely surprising given that the individual player has been a key part of the series in the last ten years. Kotaku's report on the matter also says that sources have said that the game will feature a royale battle mode as previously reported. Activision, however, still does not confirm these rumors and the details are still obscure with respect to the reasons for the fall of the campaign. Read on for more information. ]

Call of Duty is one of those franchises you can count on. Like FIFA, it does not lose its annual quota in the launch schedule and, to be honest, we like that kind of stability in our game life.

Activision has now confirmed that 2018 will see the launch of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and that Treyach is the studio that is working on it. The Call of Duty WW2 last year was very well received and there was a rebound in the sales figures, so the decision to move forward with the series has not surprised anyone.

The details on Black Ops 4 are quite thin on the ground at the moment, given that it has just been confirmed, but here you will find all the latest news and rumors.

Cut to the hunt

  • What is it? The delivery 2018 of the franchise Call of Duty
  • When can I play? October 12
  • What can I play? It is usually Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, but if the rumors are correct, it will also be on Nintendo Switch

Release date

Activision has now confirmed that the game will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 12, 2018.

News and Rumors [19659016] Now that Activision has confirmed that there will be a Call of Duty game in 2018 and is a new title in the series Black Ops, we are eagerly waiting for more information.

There is no campaign for a single player?

According to recent reports from Kotaku and Polygon, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will abandon its main single-player campaign. Activision has not confirmed these reports, therefore, if they are true, we can not be sure why the game will put aside the campaign for a player who has been part of the series for a decade. However, Polygon suggests that as the development cycle gets closer to the release date, it is clear that single-player mode will not be completed.

If these rumors are true, that does not mean that the game will lack content; Call of Duty games have a wide range of modes, from multiplayer to zombies. Polygon also reports that a royale battle mode will appear in the game, as previously suggested by Charlie Intel.

Battle Royale suggestions

With the continued success of PUBG and Fortnite, naturally, other developers are paying attention. Acitvision Blizzard, in particular, has said that it is "very aware" of the popularity of the subgenre. Does this mean we could see a battle royale mode coming to Black Ops 4? It is far from true. After all, Activision has a large number of titles that a battle royale format could offer, regardless of the opportunities for a new IP.

Although it would be a new move for Black Ops, Treyarch has asked fans to forget what they know about the series and it would be a good choice. Anyway, we can hear more about any new gameplay in the official revelation on May 17.

Vonderhaar tweets

Treyarch designer and director David Vonderhaar has been bothering Call of Duty Black Ops 4 on Twitter in the strangest way recently. Vonderhaar changed his name to Redacted and removed all his tweets from his profile except for one that says:

It's dark, but it's a possible clue to the route that Black Ops 4 will take with its plot

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is confirmed

On March 8, Activision confirmed that Call of Duty in 2018 would be Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and that we will see the game released on October 12. Before this, there will be a community revelation event on May 17 where we will have the opportunity to see more about the game.

A loss of Gamestop

Another sign that Call of Duty 2018 will be Black Ops 4 came from a leaked Gamestop list in March 2018. CharlieIntel reported that a initiated sent images from an internal database of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 listings.

The lists are for several pieces of merchandise, including T-shirts and laces expected to arrive in May 2018. This suggests that we will see the official announcement of the game before this and given that Activision announced Call of Duty WW2. in April of last year, that does not seem at all unlikely. It's not sure, of course, if these rumors are accurate and Activision still has to comment. We will update with more information when it becomes available

Activision confirms Call of Duty 2018 and Treyarch

In a profit call in February 2018, Activision confirmed to no one's surprise that there would be a Call of Duty game that will come in 2018. He also added that Treyarch would be the studio that is working on the game. Activision did not go so far as to say that this would be another delivery of Black Ops, but since Treyarch is the studio behind all the previous titles of Black Ops, there are already rumors that 2018 will see the release of Black Ops 4 this seems likely .

Tweets and the Eurogamer report

The rumor that prevails at this moment is that the next service call game will be Call of Duty Black Ops 4. The initial rumor was initiated by a self-styled Industry insider known as Marcus Sellars who took to Twitter to announce certain information about the game.

According to Sellars, Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be established in modern times, wearing more boots on the ground & # 39; in line with the recent launch of Call of Duty Duty WW2. The game, he says, will be released on PC, Xbox One and PS4 as expected, but he added that a Nintendo Switch port is also in process.

This tweet was followed by a Eurogamer report, which claimed that several sources confirmed that Call of Duty Black Ops 4 is actually working on the Treyarch studios, with the aim of launching it by the end of 2018.

Since Treyarch It has been the study behind the last three titles of Black Ops, it is safe to say that the game will be in good hands.

The Eurogamer report also claimed that the game would be established in modern times due to the negativity surrounding the futuristic configuration of Infinite Warfare, however, it did not corroborate Sellars' claim that there would be a Switch port.

Going back to the Black Ops arm of the franchise does not seem like a crazy move for Activision: the last time we saw a Black Ops title was 2015 with Black Ops 3. In general, Black Ops 3 was a well-received title of admirers and critics alike, with high praise directed at the particular multi
player mode.

What we would like to see

A version of Switch

moment, it seems that the Switch Switch rumors float in each game before the developers have to leave and say & # 39 yes … or & # 39; not & # 39; Since Activision has not yet done this for Call of Duty 2018, we think we can say that we would really like to see a Switch port.

There has not been a Call of Duty game on a Nintendo console since Call of Duty: Ghosts came to the Wii U in 2013. That's a big difference and, although Switch is not nearly as powerful as the latest consoles, we are confident that I could handle a new Call of Duty game one way or another.

When Activision confirmed that there would indeed be a Black Ops 4 released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, it did not mention a version of Nintendo Switch and declined to comment on that release. We are taking that in the sense that there is still a possibility.

A good campaign mode

Although Black Ops 3 had a fantastic multiplayer mode, its main campaign left a lot to be desired. We would love to see Black Ops 4 remedy that with an engaging story and an interesting cast of characters.

We know what can be done: Black Ops 2 had a perfectly fun campaign with many really interesting endings. We do not need to see Black Ops 4 go for a carbon copy approach, but we would not oppose a unique emotionally engaging gameplay mode.

Zombies

Zombies mode is pretty much a staple of the Call of Duty franchise right now and, naturally, we'd love to see it come back. It is a mode that has only really improved over the years and Black Ops 3 has completely hooked it, but we would like Black Ops 4 to do it even better.

A small innovation certainly does not hurt and we will definitely not oppose any new features in a tried and tested formula that begins to tire.
