that seemingly suggested 2018's Call of Duty will be a new installment
in the Black Ops
series, we now have reports from two separate outlets all but confirming it.
Earlier today, Eurogamer
cited "multiple sources" when confirming that this year's game from developer Treyarch will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
No concrete details were revealed, though the site claimed that Black Ops 4
will dial back the futuristic sci-fi elements that we saw so much of in Black Ops 3 "to better fit the series' recent desire for a more grounded feeling - in response to the negative feedback surrounding 2016's space-set Infinite Warfare."
Shortly afterward, Kotaku
chimed in with their own sources that seemingly corroborate the initial report. Kotaku added, courtesy of "two people familiar with the game's development," that it'll take place in a "near-future setting."
If you're still not satisfied, check out what Houston Rockets superstar James Harden wore en route to tonight's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
It certainly looks like the Black Ops 3
logo extended by one. Despite that not being the actual roman numeral for 4 ("IV"), one of Kotaku's sources reportedly confirmed that Harden was wearing the official logo for Black Ops 4
Activision has yet to formally announce this year's Call of Duty
, but official teasers should begin popping up either this month or next. Or was James Harden the first teaser from Activision?
