Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rumored for this year


Possibly on Switch too

How do you follow up Call of Duty: WWII? If you’re Activision, you switch back over to Black Ops.

Citing multiple sources, Eurogamer is reporting that the next game in the franchise will be Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, a more “grounded” entry in light of the reception to 2016’s Infinite Warfare.

These rumors began a few days ago with Marcus Sellars, a writer who suggested Black Ops 4 was next in line and that it would arrive on Switch courtesy of an unnamed company familiar with the series.

COD 2018 is Black Ops 4 and is coming to PS4/Xbox/PC/Switch. It is set in the modern times and is boots on the ground. The Switch version will support DLC, HD Rumble and motion controls. The Switch version is also being ported by a company which is familar with COD games.

For what it’s worth, Eurogamer’s sources have backed up Black Ops 4‘s existence but the outlet has yet to receive confirmation of a planned Switch version. With the way the console has been going lately though, Activision would be smart to make Switch a priority on this one. It’s worth the effort.

Since it wouldn’t be Call of Duty without leaks, I’m sure we’ll hear details soon enough.
