Call of Duty


 

Activision recently confirmed something most already assumed, based on the publisher’s three-year Call of Duty development cycle. For anyone unfamiliar with the cycle’s order, Treyarch is next up to release this year’s Call of Duty.

Activision confirmed Treyarch’s role in developing 2018’s Call of Duty during a recent earnings call. No details were revealed about the game, but Treyarch followed up the announcement with a post to its Twitter about the studio’s excitement to share what’s coming.

The announcement follows a recent sequence of rumors and reports that Call of Duty 2018 would continue Treyarch’s popular Black Ops sub-series. Anticipation over Black Ops IV began to grow with a tease by a Black Ops voice actor James C. Burns about an analyst report, which was proceeded by self-proclaimed industry insider Marcus Sellars claiming on Twitter Black Ops IV would launch this year, and a subsequent Eurogamer report substantiating the tweet.

The (still unofficial) word is that the game will do away with the jetpacks of the previous Black Ops installment, to be replaced by the more recently popular boots-on-the-ground style of gunplay. The game is expected to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While Sellars stated that a Switch version of Black Ops IV would join the others, Eurogamer said it was unable to verify this detail with its sources.

Assuming Activision follows a similar announcement pattern as years prior, fans should expect some kind of initial announcement of Call of Duty 2018—in which we’ll likely learn the title, setting, and basic info—around April of this year, with a more in-depth reveal at or just before E3 in June.

Sometimes a publisher just needs to tell you something you've already known for years.
