Marcus Sellars, who has a record of leaking game industry secrets before they have been officially revealed, has tweeted that this year’s instalment of Call of Duty will be Black Ops 4.
He suggests the game will be coming to Switch alongside the usual PlayStation, PC, and Xbox versions, with the port handled by “a company which is familiar with COD games,” which sounds like Raven Software, the team who ported Modern Warfare Remastered.
COD 2018 is Black Ops 4 and is coming to PS4/Xbox/PC/Switch. It is set in the modern times and is boots on the ground. The Switch version will support DLC, HD Rumble and motion controls. The Switch version is also being ported by a company which is familar with COD games.

The reference to “modern times” and “boots on the ground” also seem to indicate the game will not feature any far-fetched future tech like spider-tanks or jetpacks.
Activision usually reveal Call of Duty to the press at the start of March so it’s entirely possible that Marcus has seen some early promotional material.
