According to popular gaming forum, ResetEra, marketing for new Call of Duty games traditionally begins around the National Basketball Association playoffs in early May or late April. Black Ops II and Black Ops III were also big hits.
This all comes as a new update adds Redwood Snow and the Infected mode to Call of Duty: Black Ops III - seemingly out of nowhere. What you do get in the box though is a fantastic return to form for Call of Duty with a solid multiplayer that will hopefully grow and evolve in future map pack updates.
The new multiplayer mode actually sounds great, and should keep players that are still active within the game happily entertained.
There are now no official details about what the 2018 Call of Duty game will be or when it will be released. According to the snapshots sent by an anonymous Gamestop employee to the website, Treyarch's latest Call of Duty entry will indeed be Black Ops 4-assuming, of course, the pictures aren't faked. Well, more information has just come out that further solidifies these rumors as listings for "Black Ops 4" merchandise have started to appear online.

While it looks legitimate, as always, consider anything that isn't an official confirmation from Activision a rumor.
Activision has yet to formally announce or confirm anything regarding this year's "Call of Duty" title, perhaps waiting for the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June to make a formal announcement. The mode is similar to a "Zombies" gametype, where one person is infected versus other players as survivors. The imaginatively titled Redwood Snow map is available alongside Redwood in the game.
The publisher hasn't officially stated this will be in the 2018 Call of Duty release, however, it's an interesting take on the trend in the CoD toolset and we hope to see it translate into a console version of the title.
