Following Call of Duty: WWII, this year’s entry in the franchise is reportedly Black Ops 4. This rumor was first posted a few days ago by Marcus Sellars on Twitter and has since been corroborated by sources speaking with Eurogamer.
Black Ops 4 is being developed by Treyarch, who developed the first three Black Ops titles. Sellars states that it is set in modern times but will be boots on the ground. The Black Ops series has already covered time periods like the Cold War, modern day, and the future in 2065. Despite Black Ops 3 being more futuristic with heavy sci-fi aspects, the fourth game will apparently tone this down after the criticism that followed Infinite Warfare.
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 familar with COD games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC like always, but is also allegedly coming to Nintendo Switch. The Switch has seen a number of AAA third-party titles release for it recently, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
We’ll keep you updated on any new information that pops up. Activision declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer, as could be expected.
