This year's Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, multiple sources have confirmed to Eurogamer.

Black Ops 4 is in development at Treyarch, the Activision studio behind the three other Black Ops games, and as you'd expect is due for launch late in the year.

Word of Black Ops 4 first appeared online this week in a Twitter post from self-styled "industry insider" Marcus Sellars. In a series of posts made over the past few days, Sellars also referenced a Nintendo Switch version of Black Ops 4 was in development - a detail we're still working to verify.

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 with COD games.

Hell yeah.

Even though I didn't like the jetpacks, I actually enjoyed BO3's multiplayer. I really liked BO2's multiplayer, and I think that's what we'll roughly get this year.

Wish people would stop giving Marcus attention since he’s not reliable, lol.
But, yeah, it’s predictable and likely that the black ops team would make another black ops

Marcus Sellars is not a reliable source. If this is the best Eurogamer can come up with, I'm now beginning to question their legitimacy as well.

I played most Call Of Duty games, and my favourite ones are the Black Ops games. Not even kidding, my top 3 are the three titles they've made so far, albeit not in release order. So whatever era or style they have planned for BO4, I'm in. As far as I'm concerned, Treyarch is the current king of multiplayer shooters, every game they make guarantees me hundreds of hours of fun. WWII did a lot of things right so if they take the right clues away from them, BO4 could be even better than BO3. And I'm really looking forward to a Treyarch Call Of Duty made with the X and the Pro in mind to begin with.

IN. I am in the minority, but I loved the BO3 campaign and story, especially the fact that it doesn't spell everything out for you.

So I guess it'll be more like Blops1?

I don't really think Marcus Sellars is that reliable although this is pretty easy to predict. It's about that time for COD rumors, the Switch is doing very well and Activision missed out on that COD Switch money last year so it all lines up.

Really hope it's coming to the Nintendo Switch! How reliable is the source? I heard he predicted Nintendo Labo and Demon Souls for Nintendo Switch?

I guess that name's too popular for them to let it just lie there. As always, I'll be curious to see what the singleplayer looks like. Probably can't be a whole lot worse than 3
which wasn't very good.

Well the Switch has sorta proven itself at this point, right? If they put one on Wii U I don’t see why they couldn’t put it on the system with good sales.

I’ll be there day one. I haven’t been there day one for a single cod this gen. But I eventually picked up BO3 and it became one of my favorite cods ever. I just picked up WWII about three weeks ago and although I’m enjoying it, I know it’s not going to last for anywhere near as long as BO3. That game was pretty much my go to multiplayer for 2 1/2 years.

Eurogamer is still working to verify whether or not there will be a Switch port, it says. I think there is a decent shot at a Switch version, since every other Treyarch developed Call Of Duty game (minus BO3) made their way to a Nintendo system. Treyarch also ported some of the Infinity Ward games to Nintendo hardware as well.

I wonder what war they're going to do. A modern-day war wouldn't really make sense because we should have heard about it in Black Ops 2 & 3 and I doubt they'd revisit a war we've already fought in a previous game. Korean War with Mason and Woods maybe, with maybe some undercover missions in neighboring countires? That'd be cool.

Well, it kind of literally does, just super fast lol.

Anyway, really glad it's not WWII.

Disappointed that it’s set in modern times, but no futuristic bullshit is nice once again.

I hope they can squeeze out a respectable port on Switch. Portability and not wanting to pay for PSN means I might lean towards that version.

But will you want to pay $20 (right?) for Switch’s Online?

I pray the campaign isn't as horrid as Black Ops 3.
They need to reel it back in.

BO3 story wise was someone going off their rocker and thinking what they were writing was deeper than it actually was.
