Call of Duty 2018 is Reportedly Black Ops 4

Reports and rumors point to Treyarch handling this year's entry, which might come to Switch.

Eurogamer is reporting that this year's Call of Duty will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, according to "multiple sources". Black Ops 4 is in development at Treyarch and should be launching at the normal time later this year.

After dealing the Cold War and the future, Black Ops 4 is reportedly taking the series to our modern era. Less cybernetic parkour and more boots on the ground with modern conflicts. The first Black Ops remains the best-selling game in the Call of Duty franchise.

Word of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was first dropped by Marcus Sellars, a self-styled "industry insider" and writer for a number of smaller Nintendo-related websites. Sellars also tweeted that the game would be coming to Nintendo Switch, though Treyarch would not be handling the Switch version.

Eurogamer is reporting the existence of Black Ops 4, but has yet to confirm a Switch version with its sources.

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
