During the company’s latest earnings report (via Charlie Intel), Activision confirmed what Call of Duty fans the world over assumed: Treyarch is back and making Call of Duty 2018.
Looking forward to the year ahead. . . we can’t wait to share more!

Treyarch is responsible for the most popular sub-series in the Call of Duty franchise, having produced the first three Black Ops games to this point. Of course, the easy assumption to make is that this year we’ll get another one in the form of Black Ops 4.
Rumors have begun to swirl saying that is the case, but again, it’s easy to jump to conclusions given what we expected, and now know. Other than the developer, there’s nothing else to share at this time.
On the same call, Activision made a big deal out of the success of Call of Duty: WWII, which ended 2017 as the highest grossing console game of the year, as well as being the biggest digital release in the company’s history. Oh, and apparently in-game microtransactions made more money than DLC sales in both Call of Duty and Destiny 2, so don’t expect those to go away anytime soon.
