While we already know that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have a beta for its battle royale mode called Blackout in September, the specific details haven’t been announced just yet. However, a recent image making the rounds allegedly lists the Black Ops 4 Blackout beta release date ahead of its official announcement!
Over on Reddit, user vorkot3 has posted a screenshot of what seems to be Xbox store stating the Black Ops 4 Blackout release date as 9/8/2018! Check out the image below.
Bear in mind that this could very well be a fake — especially if you consider that September 8, 2018 is a Saturday. Also of note, if recent trends are anything to go on, the PlayStation 4 will most likely have a week’s head start compared to the PC and Xbox One platforms due to Sony and Activision’s partnership.
We’ve reached out to Activision for a statement on the matter and will update the post if and when we get a response.
In related news, Treyarch announced yesterday that the Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta client will also be used for the Blackout beta, though an update will be rolled out for it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be out this October 12 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
