A Kotaku report last night confirmed the logo, which is extremely similar to that of Black Ops 3, was indeed that of "Black Ops IIII". National Basketball Association superstar James Harden wore what looks to be a Black Ops 4 hat last night as he walked into his team's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Of course you might expect Black Ops 4 to be displayed as "IV" rather than "IIII", but the resemblance is undeniable.
Here is what Treyarch had to say about the new game mode. Activision has made no announcements thus far.
Call of Duty fans aren't entirely left alone in the dark, however.
Based on vague information that may or may not come to fruition, it seems that this next Black Ops game will move beyond the heavy sci-fi settings of Black Ops 3.
With hints about the upcoming game dropping every now and then, it is only a matter of time before Activision officially confirms the title. A survivor becomes infected when killed, and the game is over when all survivors have been infected or time runs out. That new Redwood Snow map sounds pretty cool as well.
It's a new year in the gaming world, and that means that there will be a new Call of Duty game, because that's how it has been for years now. To win, you must either infect everyone on the map or survive depending on your role. For the rest of us hardy souls, it's a chance to go all-guns-blazing into a different version of what is one of the series' most underrated maps. The next title in the series will apparently be called Black Ops 4 and it may be released in 2018 itself.
Despite being released in 2015, the developer has dropped a surprise new update into the game this week.
