Call of Duty is one of the biggest FPS series in gaming history and the next game in the series will be released in November; Infinite Warfare has been highly criticized by fans so far and it quickly became the most dislike video game trailer in Youtube history. Despite the rough start Infinite Warfare had, the game has also become the most liked Call of Duty trailer of all time.
It’s uncertain just how well Infinite Warfare will be received by gamers but fans are already looking towards the next game in the series and speculating what it could be. The Black Ops series are some of the most popular games in the Call of Duty series and they are typically being released on a two year interval.
The last game in the Black Ops series was released in 2015 and this particular series is developed by Treyarch; if the developer intends on following this pattern then the next game would be released in 2017. Some rumors are suggesting a 2018 release date instead,
Treyarch has commented on Black Ops 4 in the past when they stated on Twitter that they were investigating the possibility of a new game however the team has said nothing else about this. There was also an apparent email leak from Activision which named “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Retribution” as the next game in the series.
No real information has been released about the next game in the series but it would make sense to release a new Black Ops game now; making such a large gameplay jump with Infinite Warfare could backfire badly on the series so releasing a new Black Ops game could save the series if the next game fails.
