Call of Duty Black Ops IIII Officially Revealed, Coming in October

Black Ops IIII

After an few days of leaks, hats, and strange roman numerals, Activision has officially announced Call of Duty Black Ops IIII.

The fourth entry in the Treyarch-developed subseries of the long-running FPS has been slated for an October 12 release. Call of Duty faithful will notice that this date comes one month earlier than the typical Call of Duty release window of early November.

Earlier this week, images of the classic Black Ops orange roman numerals began to surface, but this time with the number four. Fans were inclined to write the supposed leak off as nothing more than a rumor. However, after basketball player James Harden appeared wearing a hat, things got a bit weird.

In mass confusion, memes flooded the internet in an attempt to poke fun at the strange possibility of a Black Ops IIII. Thought the game does not use the standard IV numbering, it definitely exists.

The Call of Duty news comes on a unique news day as well, with Nintendo announcing a Direct scheduled for later today. No connection seems to be drawn between the two announcements at present, but past rumors have pointed to Treyarch developing Black Ops IIII for the Nintendo Switch.

Until then, the game is only planned to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
