On Twitter, Call of Duty has shared a promoted tweet (which is not shown on their public timeline for every user; it’s region based ad tweet) for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which has the PlayStation 4 Pro logo at the end of a 6 second teaser video showing the Black Ops 4 logo and May 17 Reveal date.

This appears to confirm that the PlayStation marketing deal will continue for Call of Duty with Black Ops 4. The PlayStation deal with Activision started in 2015 with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Activision and PlayStation announced the deal at E3 2015, saying “PlayStation is the new home of Call of Duty.” The marketing deal has thus far included 30 Days Early Access to DLC, early beta access, marketing rights, and esports partnership.
Prior to that, from 2009 through 2014, Activision was partnered with Xbox. But it appears PlayStation will have the deal for another year. Activision never announced an end date to the original PlayStation deal signed in 2015.
COD 2020 Teasers: Black Ops 4 Summit map, Treyarch social profile
As we opened our new crates that Activision sent through, Black Ops 4’s Summit map got an update.
The screens in the center of the map in Black Ops 4 turned on which seem to match to what some of our slides show:
There’s also a look at clocks of 4 out of the 5 locations that some of us got as part of the slides to see:
These changes do appear to be new, especially the screens with the targets on them. Analyzing older images of the maps showcase that the screens were not showing the same thing.
In addition, Treyarch has updated their cover photo on social channels.
It’s getting cold out there…
Gameplay from Black Ops 4’s canceled campaign mode revealed
A user on Reddit, r/BlackOps4, has shared what appears to be the very first footage of gameplay from the canceled campaign mode of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which released in October 2018, was the first Call of Duty game to not have a traditional campaign mode, instead opting to have three online-based modes.
Treyarch insisted throughout the year that they really didn’t have plans for a campaign and were focusing on an online connected experience for Black Ops 4, but many reports and sources described the campaign as being too ambitious and canceled because of issues with development.
On Reddit, a user has shared about two minutes of alpha footage of the gameplay of Black Ops 4’s campaign. The campaign, in alpha-state footage (meaning its not complete), had a very similar HUD to the MP experience of Black Ops 4. The user claims that the campaign and MP were supposed to be connected, and that’s why the HUD is so similar.
The gameplay starts by showing a message of “FIND THE AQUILUS CEO.”
Here’s the gameplay footage:
The user who posted this has not said where they got this gameplay footage as of now. He said he only has this footage, alongside an augmented footage of the engine of BO4, which he is not releasing at this time.
