But the ultra-futuristic Infinite Warfare saw relatively low sales, so Black Ops 4 may pull back from similar sci-fi trappings.
Rumors of Black Ops IV originally stemmed from industry insider Marcus Sellars, who tweeted about the title's potential name on February 3. We just hope they continue the streak Nintendo Wii ports of the previous Call of Duty Black Op games started they were all well received. While the game itself is no surprise, the fact that it is coming to Nintendo Switch is. The Switch version of Black Ops 4 will reportedly support new DLC map packs, HD Rumble as well as the Joy-Con motion controls. The port for Switch is being created by a company familiar with CoD games.
Word of Black Ops 4 first appeared online this week in a Twitter post from self-styled "industry insider" Marcus Sellars.
Activision typically announces new Call of Duty games in April, so we probably have a few months before we'll get all the answers. It is set in the modern era, like Modern Warfare, and will be grounded in realism. It's being developed by Treyarch, the studio behind previous games in the series. Activision's Call of Duty reveals are on a clockwork schedule.
For now, it is still unclear what the developers at Treyarch will release this year, but there is a chance that it could end up being "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4".
Each November for over a decade now, publisher Activision has dropped a new Call of Duty game on the market.
The teaser campaign for Black Ops 4 shows that it may as well end up on the Switch after all. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
