Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Almost Confirmed

From the look of things, it is getting apparent that we are getting Black Ops 4 as a Call of Duty series installment this year. Last year, publisher Activision teamed up with developer Sledgehammer Games to take the franchise to the core with Call of Duty: WWII and the game ended up being the bestselling console game for the publisher. This way, they were able to make up for the failure of the last installment of the series; Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Setting up the game to a futuristic world in CoD: Infinite Warfare only degraded the first-person shooter while their business rival EA Dice has secured the market competition in 2016 by taking a soft reboot of with Battlefield 1 for their counterpart first-person shooter string. Call of Duty: WWII was able to do damage control in time and their added multiplayer gameplay with new features have saved the day.

Now that 2017 is over, Activision is looking forward to have a blockbuster 2018 and that hints us towards the next Call of Duty game, which as par the rumors are going to be Black Ops 4. These rumors may seem like out of the blue but it all started when video games journalist and an industry insider named Marcus Sellers have taken Twitter to announce that developer Treyarch is up to bringing the sequel and it is going to be Black Ops 4.

If you think Marcus' claim was not legitimate enough then we got more evidence hinting at Black Ops 4. Check out the short clip below where player James Harden of Houston Rockets showed up wearing a cap that has a logo on it, which very much resembles to the Black Ops III logo but there is an additional tally added in the end. Though we know that the roman numeric for 4 is IV, we still are not sure if this is the official logo for Black Ops 4.

However, we still lack any confirmation from Activision or Treyarch about if any of this is solid info to rely on. The series generally switches between Infinity Ward and Treyarch to develop their distinctive Call of Duty titles. By creating Advanced Warfare in 2014, developer studio Sledgehammer Games gets into the mix and started making Call of Duty games for the last three years. So, Treyarch will most likely take their turn at the franchise in 2018 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 seems to be their comeback card.

Activision is probably on the track of breaking their tradition of extending a series over a trilogy as they usually does. If that is the case, then this is the first time for them to go that way and it also means that Infinity Ward may come up with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 next. While these are all just speculation, fans will surely love for them to bring a few rules to release more new games each year.
