Kotaku reports that this year’s Call of Duty game, confirmed by Activision in their last earnings call with investors, is exceedingly likely to be the fourth game in the Black Ops series.
The news site confirms with their own sources, as well as this suspicious logo worn by Houston Rockets point guard James Harden in this tweet by ESPN.
The logo, as Kotaku points out, looks similar to the Black Ops III logo with one extra I. Wrong by the standards of Roman numerals (unless you’re an old clock), but strikingly similar all the same.
Activision has confirmed that Treyarch is developing this year’s Call of Duty game. Since 2010, Treyarch has only worked on Black Ops games, with the last non-Black Ops title being Call of Duty: World at War in 2008. It is not a big leap to assume that tradition would continue with Black Ops 4 (IIII),
Then again, Harden’s hat could merely be a coincidence. Activision has not detailed Call of Duty 2018 at all, but traditionally has done so for the annual game before E3 in June.
I seriously can’t get over IIII as Four and I hope that’s the title.
