Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rumored for this year

Possibly on Switch too

How do you follow up Call of Duty: WWII? If you’re Activision, you switch back over to Black Ops.

Citing multiple sources, Eurogamer is reporting that the next game in the franchise will be Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, a more “grounded” entry in light of the reception to 2016’s Infinite Warfare.

These rumors began a few days ago with Marcus Sellars, a writer who suggested Black Ops 4 was next in line and that it would arrive on Switch courtesy of an unnamed company familiar with the series.

For what it’s worth, Eurogamer’s sources have backed up Black Ops 4‘s existence but the outlet has yet to receive confirmation of a planned Switch version. With the way the console has been going lately though, Activision would be smart to make Switch a priority on this one. It’s worth the effort.

Since it wouldn’t be Call of Duty without leaks, I’m sure we’ll hear details soon enough.
