Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Announced With Release Date

/ Mar 9th, 2018 No Comments

Black Ops 4

Activision announced the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 release date will be Friday, Oct. 12, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

After weeks of speculation and leaks pointed to a fourth Black Ops game being the next entry in the blockbuster franchise, Activision confirmed the rumors.

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Release Date

Black Ops 4 will be developed by Treyarch, the studio behind 2015’s Black Ops 3. No other news regarding the game’s campaign, multiplayer, zombies, or other modes were confirmed during this announcement. However, a community reveal event will take place on Thursday, May 17 where Activision and Treyarch will likely show off the game for the first time to the world.

Treyarch’s previous effort in the Call of Duty franchise was packed with modes and features that the studio may seek to expand. Black Ops 3 featured an expanded zombies mode, a fully cooperative campaign, and a redesigned multiplayer that allowed players to pick a soldier with a unique ability or weapon. For now, fans will have a few months to speculate on what Treyarch has planned for a series that went far into the future and back to World War 2 in the time since Black Ops 3’s launch.

Quick Take

Around this same time every year, leaks pour forth on what the newest Call of Duty game is. While it’s no surprise Activision got ahead of the flood and made the announcement itself, Black Ops 4’s release date tells a story. For several years, Call of Duty games have released during the first week of November, scooping up huge sales numbers in their wake.

A wrench in this release plan came in the form of Rockstar announcing Red Dead Redemption 2’s release date will be on Oct. 26, 2018. If there is any game that could make Call of Duty sweat this year, it’s Red Dead. Rather than come out a week after one of the most anticipated games of the year, Activision is giving Black Ops 4 two weeks to dominate without having to worry about major competition.

It will also be interesting to see how other publishers schedule out their major releases. EA will have to choose wisely with Battlefield. Sony’s Spider-Man and Ubisoft’s recently announced The Division 2 may also have to reevaluate their marketing come E3 2018.
