There have been many rumors in the past few days regarding the 2018 Call of Duty title…today a new source has chimed in on the recent rumors: EuroGamer.
EuroGamer says their sources tell them this year’s Call of Duty game will in fact be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. EuroGamer says they have heard this information from ‘multiple sources.’
The Black Ops 4 rumor began earlier this week when a Nintendo industry reporter tweeted out that the game is Black Ops 4 and is coming to Switch, alongside PS4/X1/PC. The reporter also claimed that this year’s game will be a modern-themed game and boots on the ground. EuroGamer did not elaborate on the setting of the game and said they were not able to confirm if the game is coming to Switch.
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.

Some of the information being reported does not match up with what we have been hearing, but never the less, stay tuned for the latest information regarding Call of Duty 2018. We don’t expect any big news to drop on the game from Activision anytime soon, as usual Call of Duty reveals are in April-May time frame.
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.
