Shareholders were satiated with a return to roots in the most recent Call of Duty. WW2 is doing the rounds in the eSports scene, but it looks like Activision may be dipping their toe back into a more modern CoD with the upcoming Call of Duty release rumored to be Black Ops 4.
The rumor surfaced when self-proclaimed industry insider Marcus Sellars revealed the details on his Twitter account. Eurogamer picked up the story and has confirmed with multiple sources that this year's Call of Duty is Black Ops 4. While the game itself is no surprise, the fact that it is coming to Nintendo Switch is. Sellars says that it will support DLC, HD Rumble, and motion controls. The port for Switch is being created by a company familiar with CoD games.

The first Black Ops was when the Call of Duty franchise was at its peak and, hopefully, this next iteration continues a trend to reclaim the franchise's identity like it did with WW2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is rumored to be launching on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime later this year.
