Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is now official, and fortunately for everyone who has to write about it, the tally-numbered title is apparently exclusive to the game’s logo. Activision, quite sanely, is just referring to is as “Black Ops 4” in text.
The sequel was announced in a livestream on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel, confirming weeks of speculation incited by reports, leaks, and general hearsay. The livestream had nothing on the actual game, involving only some welders cutting a sheet of metal into the game’s four-tally logo.
While we didn’t see anything on the actual game, the tease did promise a full reveal coming May 17th. This will undoubtably precede Black Ops 4‘s presence at E3 2018, where gamers will get an even deeper look at the new shooter, and likely even hands-on.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is slated to launch October 12th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. At this time, there is no word of a Switch release.
