Activision’s previous Call of Duty title World War II has been out in the world for, oh, five months now, which means it’s just about time for gamers to start wondering where the next release is.
Thankfully, Activision knows that it’s that time of year too, and has today (March 8) confirmed that the next Call of Duty game is going to be another Black Ops title.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be developed by Treyarch Studios, scheduled for release on October 12, 2018.

Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty fans will get more information about the upcoming title in May – May 17, to be precise – when they can tune in to a community reveal event that will detail some of the experiences they can expect from the game.
Long-term COD players will also note that an October release date is a bit earlier than normal for the franchise, which usually premieres new titles in November, with fans pointing at the recently-announced October launch date of Red Dead Redemption 2 as a possible reason for the earlier release.
