With Treyarch taking an different approach to their seasonal events and Operation scheduling this go-around, there has been some confusion when the next Operation actually begins.
To clear it all up, Treyarch has confirmed that “Days of Summer will be the next seasonal game update that kicks off the second half of Operation Spectre Rising”. They continued by reaffirming the release window for the fifth Operation, which will be in July.
What this means is that there won’t be a new specialist or some monumental change to Black Ops 4 with the start of Days of Summer because it is still under the Operation Spectre Rising umbrella.
This also means that players should not expect a new Zombies map as well. DLC 3 will presumably launch sometime within the fifth Operation in July.
Treyarch has also confirmed that a new Sniper will be on its way to Black Ops 4 during the Days of Summer event.
Lastly, with the first half of Operation Spectre Rising coming to end, the current items in the Contraband Stream will be going away as well. Make sure you rank up through all 50 tiers before then if you want your hands on the Tigershark LMG.

As of yet, all we know about Days of Summer is that it will include “New Blackout modes, new map updates, new weapons, and more.”
We’ll have more details on Days of Summer as soon as they’re unveiled.
