More reports are coming in to confirm that this year’s Call of Duty is indeed Black Ops 4.
In February, two separate reports revealed that this year’s Treyarch-developed Call of Duty is going to be Black Ops 4.
This week, references to Black Ops 4-themed merchandise were spotted in GameStop’s database, lending further credence to the reports. Now, we may have gotten confirmation from an unlikely place.

But, according to Kotaku, this is in fact the logo of the next game. It has the same styling and everything, but they just decided not to follow Roman numeral conventions.
