Activism has formally confirmed that the next ‘Call of duty’ title will be named ‘Black Ops 4.’ They further stated that the addition can be expected to be made to the franchise towards the end of this year, i.e. Friday, October 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC gaming consoles.
Moreover, there have been numerous rumors of a Nintendo Switch version having to swirl amidst these announcements, however, Activism didn’t make any comments regarding the same. “In what represents a game-changing experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will revolutionize the top-selling series in Call of Duty history,” their official press release read.
At this point, that’s all the official information we have about the game. As PCMag’s sister site IGN reports, rumors have indicated that “Black Ops 4 will tone down its sci-fi elements in favor of a ‘more grounded feeling’ as a response to the reception of Infinite Warfare in 2016.”
Meanwhile, the third entry in Treyarch’s incredibly popular spin-off series, Black Ops 3, earned a “good” rating in PCMag’s 2015 review, nabbing props for its online multiplayer modes, “entertaining, varied campaign missions,” and “fun cybernetic abilities.”
“For better or worse, Call of Duty: Black Ops III is exactly the straightforward big-budget shooter you expect, offering entertaining gunplay, a ridiculous (but fun) campaign, and deep online multiplayer with a bevy of game modes,” we wrote.
