The game is currently being developed by Treyarch and which is confirmed to hit the gaming world on October 12, 2018.

Unlike other titles of Call of Duty which are generally released in November, this will be the first one that will be launched in October. The reason might be none other than the release of another mega title which is Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 which is also due in this upcoming October. If the game was released in November like the other title, then it will need to compete with Red Dead Redemption 2’s and thus to avoid any kind of risk in term of revenue, the publisher is going to publish this title earlier. With an October 12th release date, Activision and Treyarch can get the edge over both Red Dead Redemption 2 and Battlefield V which is also due in October and with an added advantage of the holiday season out front rather than in the tailwinds of its biggest competitors. Overall it’s a good choice to get hands on the market first.
Despite earlier rumours about the game to be releasing for Switch, Activision did not say anything about it. Being asked the above question, the company declined to comment. But they might be waiting for a Nintendo Direct today, and the company might disclose their plan on releasing the game Black Ops IIII, for Switch.
