We may get to see more content releases for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in the future.

Black Ops 3 is not the most recent Call of Duty game. Despite that, it’s still very popular, and definitely more favoured by fans than this year’s Infinite Warfare.

Typically, Call of Duty games don’t receive post-launch content beyond what gets announced for the season pass. For Black Ops 3, planned content drops ended in September/October this year. However, this may not be the end of the line for the game just yet.

Black Ops 3 developer Treyarch recently hosted a short Facebook livestream (via CharlieIntel) to recap some of the things 2016 brought to the game and discuss future content. The studio’s Jason Blundell and Dan Bunting said that Black Ops 3 will be getting more updates in 2017.

The pair didn’t indicate if they’re referring to new content, as in maps and modes, or features and improvements, even if it looked like they’re hinting at the former. “I am afraid I can’t say anything right now,” said Bunting.

Co-studio head Dan Bunting did confirm one thing, though, a new feature called Newton’s Cookbook coming to the game’s Zombies mode. Outside of that, it looks like we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
