The publisher may not confirm Black Ops 4's existence despite these reports, but they'll likely highlight or even tease info around the game.

It is only a matter of time before the 2018 "Call of Duty" game is officially unveiled.

Call of Duty: WW2 is currently out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, however Activision and Treyarch already have job listings for Call of Duty 2018.

Treyarch released Black Ops III in 2015, followed by Infinity Ward's Infinite Warfare in 2016 and Sledgehammer's WWII previous year. The Nintendo Switch version of the game has Activision on its side since it will facilitate the sales which are going through the roof.

Sources confirmed to Eurogamer that developer Treyarch is working on "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" for release in 2018. We probably won't hear about the next Call of Duty title for another month or two, but when we finally do, don't be shocked to see Black Ops 4 get an official reveal. He added that the new game is expected to feature a modern setting along with "boots on the ground" gameplay. Call of Duty: Ghosts was the last Call of Duty released on a Nintendo system (Wii U). Death, taxes and an annually released Call of Duty game.

The Switch port is apparently being handled by "a company familiar with COD games", so it should be in good hands.

We know it can be done - Black Ops 2 had a perfectly enjoyable campaign with really interesting multiple endings.

Eurogamer is claiming that Black Ops 4 "will dial back to better fit the series' recent desire for a more grounded feeling".

We don't need to see Black Ops 4 go for a carbon copy approach, but we wouldn't object to an emotionally engaging single-play story mode.

Stay tuned for more details on Call of Duty Black Ops 4, if it's announced!
