As expected, the next Call of Duty will arrive later this year. Today, Activision announced that the last entry in the military series of shots, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (Black Ops IIII inexplicably designed in the official logo), will be released on October 12. It is the first entry in the Black Ops sub-series since 2015, and follows Call of Duty: WWII last year. As with all previous Black Ops games, the new title will be developed by Call of Duty's Treyarch studio.
That is all we know now. Activision says the new title "represents an experience that will change the rules of the game," but still provides nothing in terms of details. Instead, the company will reveal more during an event broadcast live on May 12.
Rumors of a new entry in the series have been circulating for several weeks, following a Eurogamer report in February. Things intensified in recent days, thanks to a baseball cap: NBA star James Harden was seen wearing a hat with what appeared to be the logo of a new Black Ops game.
Black Ops 4 will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC when it launches in October. It's the second revelation of a bestselling game today, after Ubisoft's surprise announcement from The Division 2 before.
