Call of Duty

According to a report on Kotaku, it appears that this year’s Call of Duty entry is going to be Black Ops 4.

It isn’t a big surprise given that Treyarch was already confirmed to be developing a Call of Duty game this year, and Black Ops is their lot.

In an amusing turn of events, one hint came by way of NBA superstar James Harden, of the Houston Rockets. Arriving at the Chesapeake Energy Arena for a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Harden was seen sporting a hat bearing the tell-tale logo on the front – along with thematic camo tracksuit!

An official announcement hasn’t yet been made, but anonymous sources close to Kotaku have confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is indeed in development. This also corroborates an earlier report from Eurogamer.

Call of Duty games are traditionally announced around April or May, so it could be that Harden is helping with a marketing campaign.

It’s also worth pointing out that the roman numeral for ‘4’ would be ‘IV’, but that doesn’t seem to be what Activision is going with – they have yet to respond to the rumours.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
