It seems a bit confused about how Roman numerals works, but it sounds like the next COD is set in the modern day and coming to Switch.
Even without any evidence at all, Black Ops 4 would be the obvious guess for this year’s Call Of Duty.
It’s developer Treyarch’s ‘turn’ to make an entry this year and all they’ve been making since 2010 is Black Ops game (even 2008’s World At War was part of the same sub-series).
There’s no more information on the game than that, other than that industry insider Marcus Sellars claims that they’ll be a Switch version that supports DLC, HD rumble, and motion controls. Which is fairly believable as Activision were always good about bringing Call Of Duty to the Wii.
The most compelling evidence that the game actually is Black Ops 4 though comes from a listing in GameStop’s computer system, which website Charlie INTEL got a hold of and makes several references to Black Ops 4.
And then finally there’s the headwear of basketball star James Harden. He’s been spotted wandering around with a cap that has the Black Ops III logo but with an extra ‘I’.
That’s not how Roman numerals work, but according to Kotaku’s sources it is the official logo for the game. Although it’s not clear whether Harden is showing off the logo with Activision’s blessing or if he’s doing it accidentally ahead of time.
The new Call Of Duty is traditionally revealed around April though, so it shouldn’t be too long till we found out for certain.
