As expected, the next Call of Duty is coming later this year. Today, Activision announced that the latest entry in the military shooter series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (inexplicably styled Black Ops IIII in the official logo), will be launching on October 12th. It’s the first entry in the Black Ops subseries since 2015, and it follows last year’s Call of Duty: WWII. As with all previous Black Ops games, the new title will be developed by longtime Call of Duty studio Treyarch.
That’s about all we know right now. Activision says the new title “represents a game-changing experience,” but it isn’t providing anything in the way of details just yet. Instead, the company will be revealing more during a live-streamed event on May 17th.
Rumors of a new entry in the series have been swirling for several weeks, following a report from Eurogamer in February. Things intensified over the last few days, thanks to a baseball cap: NBA star James Harden was spotted wearing a hat with what appeared to be the logo for a new Black Ops game.
Black Ops 4 will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC when it launches in October. It’s the second reveal of a blockbuster game today, following Ubisoft’s surprise announcement of The Division 2 earlier.
