According to the development cycles of the series, the next Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, due out in 2018, will be developed by Treyarch. As usual, we will have to wait for spring to learn more about it.
However, according to a well-known insider, Marcus Sellars, to whom we owe several confirmed rumors of the arrival of Dark Souls and Labo on Nintendo Switch, the 2018 Call of Duty will be Black Ops 4 and will also be released on Nintendo Switch. It will have the difficult task of following the very popular series of Call of Duty: WWII.
“COD 2018 is Black Ops 4 and is coming to PS4/Xbox/PC/Switch. It is set in the modern times and is boots on the ground. The Switch version will support DLC, HD Rumble, and motion controls. The Switch version is also being ported by a company which is familiar with COD games,” are the statements made by the insider.
Apparently, therefore, the next Call of Duty developed by Treyarch would be nothing but Black Ops 4, a new chapter set in the modern era that should abandon exoskeletons and thrusters, focusing on a more realistic gameplay that does not include huge jumps or walks on walls. What’s even more interesting, the game would be a straight forward arrival on Nintendo Switch.
According to the information in the possession of the insider, the sub-series of Black Ops has been completely refounded, probably to be appealing even by those who have not played the previous chapters. Obviously, Activision has not confirmed or denied anything about it, so we just have to wait for more information.
Since we are talking about an unconfirmed rumor, we invite you to take the news with a pinch of salt waiting for any official confirmation. Finally, we remind you that last October James Burns of Treyarch had made some mention of the possible announcement of Black Ops 4, an eventuality that at this point could materialize over the next few weeks. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comments below.
