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


Update: Today was a big day if you’re a Call of Duty Black Ops 4 (styled IIII, for some odd reason) fan. Activision announced that while BO4 won’t offer a traditional single-player campaign, the game will feature more multiplayer modes than ever before including three zombie campaigns and a new mode called Blackout that will seem similar to gamers who have played battle royale games like Fortnite and PUBG. 

Activision unveiled two trailers for the zombie modes – one that features a Titanic-like ship setting and one that places you in an Egyptian gladiatorial arena – and one mutliplayer trailer that shows some of the skills you can look forward to using against online opponents. Activision also confirmed that the game will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC starting on October 12.

Call of Duty is one of those franchises that you can count on. Like FIFA, it doesn’t miss its yearly slot on the release calendar and, to be frank, we like that kind of stability in our gaming lives. 

Activision has now confirmed that 2018 will see the release Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and that Treyach is the studio working on it. Last year’s Call of Duty WW2 was largely well-received and there was an uptick in the sales figures, so the decision to keep going with the series has surprised no one.

Details on Black Ops 4 are pretty thin on the ground at the moment, given it’s just been confirmed but here you’ll find all the latest news and rumors.
