Activision has announced that the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be available exclusively on Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher. The title will not be available on Steam.
This will be the first Call of Duty title in history to be available on Blizzard’s Battle.net service. Activision’s first title to use Blizzard’s service was Destiny 2 in 2017. Activision Blizzard is a joint company, so using their own platform for PC will benefit the company in the long term.
Activision has also invested many resources to ensure that Black Ops 4 is great game on PC, with a whole dedicated PC team working on the title for this year.
PC players can pre-order Black Ops 4 on Battle.net now.
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
For the PC, Treyarch is co-developing with Beenox, who together are working closely with Blizzard to optimize Black Ops 4 for Battle.net. Black Ops 4 represents the largest development team assembled for a PC title in the series. Black Ops 4 on PC will have uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR, support for ultra-wide monitors and the ability for players to extensively customize the performance and visual quality for their specific hardware. In addition, players will be able to select from pre-set control options, including options for left-handed players, or fully customize the keyboard and mouse controls to their preference. In addition, Treyarch and Beenox worked closely with the team at Blizzard to incorporate Battle.net’s social systems, security, and server stability into Black Ops 4, to prepare for the release on Battle.net on October 12.
