Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (officially, IIII) has been announced by Activision ahead of a 17th May community reveal event. As rumoured, the sequel is being helmed by Treyarch. This confirmation caps off a spate of leaks, including one courtside at an NBA game over the weekend. There are no other details on the title as of yet, though a near-future setting is expected.

Fascinatingly, the first-person shooter will launch on 12th October, which is early for a Call of Duty game. The series typically occupies the first week in November, and we can only conclude that Activision is trying to get out ahead of Red Dead Redemption 2 on 26th October. Which, if true, is freakin’ bonkers.
