On the 8th of February , Activision confirmed that the 2018 Call of Duty game will be developed by Treyarch. Treyarch has been known to be the creator of the crowd-favourite Black Ops sub-series of the Call of Duty franchise. No further details have been shared by Activision about this year’s game, however it is rumored to be the much-anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
A few days before this announcement , a report had said that Black Ops 4 would be the upcoming game in the franchise . Eurogamer has reported that multiple sources confirmed Black Ops 4 being this year’s Call of Duty title, along with a recent tweet from games writer Marcus Sellars. It also mentioned that this new game would have fewer sci-fi elements in response to the negative reviews of the very futuristic Infinite Warfare.
Call of Duty releases are known to rotate between Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer, and Treyarch. The last game of the Black Ops sub-series , Black Ops III, was released in 2015 thus it was expected that Treyarch would make this year’s game . Hence the chances of Black Ops 4 are quite high .
The Black Ops series has proven to be the most popular and best among the various recurring Call of Duty brands. This series pays homage to a worldwide fan-base and is much anticipated.
It might be a while still until we hear more as new Call of Duty games traditionally aren’t announced until April or May .
