Following the release of last year’s World War II, the Call of Duty series is officially back to it roots. The boots-on-the-ground gameplay is what fans have been wanting for years, and now it seems that’s exactly what the series will be churning out for the foreseeable future. However, it looks like the next game in the series might actually be a direct sequel to one of the games in the series, whose last installment was futuristic.
The game in question is Black Ops 4, which is rumored to be the next game to release in the Call of Duty series. This rumor comes from industry insider Marcus Sellars, who has been right multiple times in the past regarding big gaming rumors. He said the following:
“COD 2018 is Black Ops 4 and is coming to PS4/Xbox/PC/Switch. It is set in the modern times and is boots on the ground. The Switch version will support DLC, HD Rumble and motion controls. The Switch version is also being ported by a company which is familar [sic] with COD games.”
It’s very interesting that Treyarch will be continuing on with their Black Ops series, as it would be the first in the series to go beyond a trilogy. Black Ops 3 was the first in that sub-series to shoot into the future, but the series began as a boots-on-the-ground ordeal. It looks like the developer will simply go back to what they were doing at the beginning of the Black Ops series, though there will undoubtedly be some new bells and whistles.
This all needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as we need to wait on official news from Activision regarding the future of the series. However, due to the credibility of the source, this seems like it could be something that ultimately ends up being true. More information will likely be coming within the next few months, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
