Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 officially announced and it’s coming in October
The best selling franchise is back… of course.
Activision and Treyarch have officially announced the latest yearly Call of Duty, and as expected, we are getting Black Ops IIII. No, that is not a typo. Activision and Treyarch either don’t like roman numerals, or they just didn’t give a flying crap.
Following all the rumors and leaks, Activision and Treyarch announced that the game would be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC starting Friday, October 12.
An October release date is the first time in franchise history that Call of Duty will release in October instead of November. The date movement is most likely due to Red Dead Redemption 2‘s release on October 26. According to Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII is “what represents a game-changing experience. Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will revolutionize the top-selling series in Call of Duty history when it launches worldwide on Friday, October 12.” The global reveal will be on Thursday, May 17.
Despite community rumors, there was no confirmation on Black Ops 4 coming to the Nintendo Switch. When asked directly, Activision and Treyarch declined any comment. There is also no direct mention of if jetpacks will be used or if we will be on the ground again.
Are you excited for Black Ops 4 to come back? Black Ops is my favorite Call of Duty series, and I loved every one. I played as a pro-am player during Black Ops 1, so I am ready to see what Treyarch and Activision have in store for us!
