The announcements have been made. The dust has, well, nearly settled, bar a rogue horde who’ve lost all sense of perspective. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Battlefield V have been revealed to the world. The two biggest first-person shooters on the planet will lock horns in October, their releases dates separated by a handful of days.
Continuing the trend started by Destiny 2, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is going to be exclusive to Blizzard’s platform. Both gaming giants obviously fall under the Activision-Blizzard, so it looks increasingly likely this is going to be a permanent agreement going forward.
In case you missed you it, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was fully unveiled to the world yesterday evening. It was to be an evening of precious few surprises, with just about every leak we’d heard about turning out to be real.
After revealing the existence of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, sorry, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, to the world in March, Activision gave us a painful two-month until we could see what the game actually even is.
Here’s news that won’t be well received by solo players - Polygon is reporting a scoop that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII won’t have any traditional single-player story mode. This would make COD: BLOPS 4 the first ever mainline Call of Duty game to ship without a campaign.
This year’s Call of Duty game from Treyarch will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 reports Eurogamer, citing insider sources.
