‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ is Avoiding ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’

Black Ops IIII coming October 12th!

Last week, Activision and developer Treyarch started early promotions for their next-installment of the Call of Duty series. Over the last 10-consecutive years, the title has been the highest selling third-party game on consoles. However, that could come to an end this year.

For the first time ever, Call of Duty will not be releasing in its traditional November month roll-out, as Black Ops 4 has been given an October 12th game. With Rockstar Games in no rush to roll-out their first Grand Theft Auto title on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, Red Dead Redemption 2 has become arguably the most-anticipated title of the entire year.

We found it odd that Rockstar Games would boldly pit its title up against Call of Duty in November. Luckily, for Activision, the people in charge of the Los Angeles company were smart enough to shift the title’s release date and avoid the open-world western juggernaut. Before every gamer picks up RDR2, Activision will be able to make the bulk of their annual cash-horse a month prior.

Take a look at the debut Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 teaser above.
