However, it will be set in modern times and will stick to boots on ground gameplay, which was re-introduced in last year's Call of Duty. The Switch version of Black Ops 4 will reportedly support new DLC map packs, HD Rumble as well as the Joy-Con motion controls. But with Sledgehammer Games handling World War II in 2017's Call of Duty: WWII, it's unlikely Treyarch will be making World at War 2.
As expected, it will be released on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PC, but more surprisingly, Sellars claims that it will also be available on the Nintendo Switch. It is also being ported by a company that is familiar with COD games.
However, the tipster's track record on rumours like these are somewhat patchy, although he has successfully revealed info on Darks Souls Remastered and Nintendo's recently revealed cardboard toy, Labo, ahead of announcement.
Given how well the Nintendo Switch has sold, it makes sense for the next Call of Duty game to arrive on Nintendo's latest console. Obviously, he got his data from reliable people in the industry.
Industry insider Marcus Sellars backs this up, tweeting the following regarding the game. The boots-on-the-ground gameplay is what fans have been wanting for years, and now it seems that's exactly what the series will be churning out for the foreseeable future. Although Activision and Treyarch are working on a new Call of Duty game, the two have not disclosed that it will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
The publisher and developer have yet to release an official statement about the development status of the shooter as well as its final title. What's even more interesting, the game would be a straight forward arrival on Nintendo Switch.
