Call of Duty Black Ops 4 coming in 2018, key sources say

We all are well aware of how the development cycle of Call of Duty video game series goes - on that note, it's confirmed that this year's Call of Duty game (2018) will be developed by Treyarch.

Activision typically announces new Call of Duty games in April, so we probably have a few months before we'll get all the answers. However, it has been established that it will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the Switch.

Citing multiple sources, Eurogamer says that Black Ops 4 is now being developed by Treyarch, the same studio responsible for the first three Black Ops titles. If an industry insider is to be believed, this year's title is going to be called Call of Duty Black Ops 4.

Activision now rotates the development team around the Call of Duty franchise, and with Sledgehammer Games working on the last instalment it's time for Treyarch to step back in line.

It appears as though the next iteration in the Call of Duty franchise will bring us back to one of the best parts of the series.

Each November for over a decade now, publisher Activision has dropped a new Call of Duty game on the market.

Sellars even ventured to point out that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be set in modern times and that, apparently, there will be no Advanced Warfare style jetpacks.

The wording of "familiar with COD games" is a bit odd, considering I'm familiar with those games existing but took a years-long break before jumping back in with WWII.

We know it can be done - Black Ops 2 had a perfectly enjoyable campaign with really interesting multiple endings.

If it does turn out to be Black Ops 4 with the series seeing boots on the ground gameplay, many will likely be pleased.

It makes sense for the developers to release "Black Ops 4", especially given how well "Black Ops 3" was received critically and how well it has sold.
