Activision and Treyarch have announced Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the fourth Black Ops game since the series’ debut in 2010, and will release on October 12.
The game was announced with a logo today, ending speculation from earlier this week about whether it would be a fourth Black Ops game or an entirely new Call of Duty sub-series from Treyarch. The stream featured a short montage of quick game footage, indicating another near-future shooter, in line with recent Black Ops titles. The bits of footage seemed to also indicate that Zombies mode would make a return.
The stream also confirmed that a community event on May 17 will reveal more about the game, with more likely at E3 later this year. In an email alongside the announcement, Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The date is a little earlier than Call of Duty traditionally releases, though that might be to avoid too much conflict with Red Dead Redemption II. I’m looking forward to the full reveal in May.
