Just last month, a reputable leaker of video game info let it slip that this year’s Call of Duty game being developed by Treyarch is none other than Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It’ll allegedly be set in modern times, have a boots-on-the-ground setting, and will even be making its way onto the Nintendo Switch.
Now, it seems more evidence has surfaced that Call of Duty 2018 is indeed Black Ops 4! An anonymous tipster has sent images of the internal GameStop database where new listings for Black Ops 4 merchandise have popped up! There are t-shirts, lanyards and more — all with prices, even. Check out the screenshots below.
Also important to note: in the second image, it mentions “storage boxes” which could mean loot boxes, and with a price of $0.00, could very well mean it’s part of a pre-order bonus of some sort. Ditto with the”premium, poster” listing as well. If this is the case, it shouldn’t be that surprising since past Call of Duty titles have gone that route to entice players to fork over their cash earlier than the franchise’s November release date.
Treat this with a grain of salt for now, people. Although, having said that, it does look legit. We’ve reached out to Activision and will update the post if and when we get a reply.
In related news, Treyarch has mentioned that the studio is making the “best work of their lives,” which is good news for Call of Duty fans.
