Based on the current rotation of Call of Duty developers, we know that this year’s annual release will be developed by Treyarch, developer of the popular Black Ops games. After the lukewarm response to the sci-fi elements of the second two Black Ops titles, many fans were wondering if Treyarch would move on to something else.

We may have a partial answer to that, as a recent leak from GameStop’s internal database shows listings for Black Ops 4 merchandise. This includes t-shirts and lanyards, priced at $19.99 and $6.99 respectively. GameStop is known to carry merchandise like this for every Call of Duty release, so this information isn’t surprising. These items are expected to arrive in May, which is around the time new titles in the franchise are typically announced.

As far as what the game will hold, nobody is sure yet. However, there were reports last month that indicated Black Ops 4 would back away from the sci-fi elements and become “more grounded.” It was also rumored that we would see this new title on the Nintendo Switch. The last Call of Duty title to appear on a Nintendo system was the 2013 release of Ghosts.

What are your hopes for the potential new Black Ops game? Do you think the series will return to Nintendo? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
