Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 officially announced with new October release date

09 Mar 2018

Activision has announced that its next big Call of Duty game will be Black Ops 4 developed by Treyarch. It will have a much earlier release date compared to previous years when COD games would be released in the first week of November. 

The official release date for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is October 12th, 2018 and it will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Other than a release date, no other information was given. 

However, developer Treyarch will be revealing more details about the new game in a special event being held on May 17th, 2018. It's likely the May event will show us the game's setting as well as the first gameplay footage. 

Activision may have chosen the new October date as a way to avoid Rockstar's October 26th, 2018 release date for Red Dead Redemption 2. Despite the COD franchise's popularity, Red Dead Redemption 2 is more likely to be the best selling game of 2018.
