Call of Duty Black Ops 4 coming in 2018, key sources say

07 February 2018

Treyarch has covered a wide timeline in the Black Ops series thus far, trying many different settings and at times jumping back and forth between them.

As stated in our original report, Marcus Sellars was the first person to talk about Black Ops 4, which he revealed openly in a tweet.

This year's Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, multiple sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.

Call of Duty: WW2 is currently out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, however Activision and Treyarch already have job listings for Call of Duty 2018.

Rumors have included a Nintendo Switch version of Black Ops 4, however, that part has not been verified.

Much of Sellars' report was based around the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Sellers also said that Black Ops IV will be "set in modern times and is boots on the ground", and he reported that it'll be available for Nintendo Switch, as well as the traditional consoles. It is set in the modern era, like Modern Warfare, and will be grounded in realism.

Following the release of last year's World War II, the Call of Duty series is officially back to it roots.

Activision now rotates the development team around the Call of Duty franchise, and with Sledgehammer Games working on the last instalment it's time for Treyarch to step back in line.

Activision's annual return to the Call of Duty franchise has been relatively uninterrupted and 2018 appears to be sticking with the schedule.

If it does turn out to be Black Ops 4 with the series seeing boots on the ground gameplay, many will likely be pleased.

Treyarch released Black Ops III in 2015, followed by Infinity Ward's Infinite Warfare in 2016 and Sledgehammer's WWII a year ago. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
