Take a look.

70 Comments

With just a few hours to go before Activision is set to formally unveil Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, what appears to be the game's box art has leaked online.

CharlieIntel spotted the art, which shows three characters, including one in the middle who appears to be wearing some kind of exo-suit. The character in the middle bears some kind of resemblance to former San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson before he cut his hair.

All should be revealed soon, as Activision will officially reveal Black Ops 4 during an event scheduled for 10 AM PT on May 17. The event will be streamed live and you'll be able to watch the entire thing here on GameSpot. We will of course also have a full rundown of all the big news as it is announced, so keep checking back for more.

Black Ops 4 launches on October 12 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The reason they keep making these games is because they keep making money. Where does that money come from? You guys. No one is putting a gun to your head when you willingly spend $60 every year with the naive mindset, "oh, maybe this one will be good!" followed by "Activision stole my money." This annual cycle is on you guys. Stop buying these games.

Well, I’ve been playing call of duty from the very beginning and honestly in just my own opinion, the quality has gone down. Not the graphics but the actual building of the games. These games now and days are half built and selling them for full price, they will continue to sell them like this because (excuse my French), stupid young players who didn’t grow up in the period where companies like this busted their ass to make a great game, will buy it and allow them to get away with it. I’m still a gamer but I will continue to buy games from companies that show effort in the quality of their games like God of War. Like I mentioned before my opinion and I’m welcomed to it!

@seers7112: you know what? I wonder if they just take the wireframe maps from previous games, then flip them and re skin them? Have CoD players been playing the same maps all these years, just with different skins and graphics? Not that it would be wrong, but I still bet they do something of the sort.

Another thing, I have a 10 year old nephew who got a ps4 2 years ago, and Blops 3 is the only game he plays. Hes good, but it's like hes scared to try other games because he fears NOT being as good at other games. I finally got him to play Fortnite, and he likes it so we will see lol

No single player campaign = NOT BUYING IT!!!

The single player campaign was probably the best part of the black ops series. Now that it’s gone there’s no reason to bother with it.

@Packer1080: It looked way better than I thought, considering the rumors. I'll definitely pick it up, but first I'll be playing RDR2.

If what I hear about there being no single player is true I will be thumbs downing every video I see of this game and sending Treyarch a tweet telling them exactly what I think of what they've done.

I then obviously won't be buying the game.

I hope others do the same I doubt they will though. I will wait for the stream first. I'm prepared to be disappointed.

The generic looking characters suggest it's multiplayer only.

@quinnd6: Generic looking characters?
They are from Black Ops 3.

@GinsuVictim: Oh right Black ops 3 story was so bad and unmemorable I forgot the characters.

@quinnd6: I never played the campaign, I just know them from the multiplayer. Anyone who played the multiplayer knows these characters VERY well.

@pcmasterwaste: No, the part that irritates me is the brain-dead box art with the incorrect Roman Numeral.

If people want to buy the same game every year, that's their choice.

@Pyrosa: It isn't incorrect. A ton of clocks use IIII, as that was the original version and IV is more modern.

@Pyrosa: You know what's worse than people buying something every year? The people bitching about those people who buy something every year. My goodness. What do you care?

@Pyrosa: it's not supposed to be a roman numeral. this can be more akin to how people count by drawing lines on paper. draw 4 lines next to each other then the 5th one goes across them. like how people counted days in prison.

@ballashotcaller: It is a Roman numeral. IIII is the original version and IV is more modern. Both appear on clocks and both are acceptable.

This just proves how quick Activision wants to get a new Call of Duty out each year. The main guy ( middle one) has the same body as the cover man from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare.

just need confirmation of NO SINGLE PLAYER so we can decide how many to order in store this year. Most of our customers dont play online due to cost.

@Bread_or_Decide: But everything green IS money, and everything brown IS feces. Haha. I was just having fun, I was talking about the box art of a video game. I think this franchise can take my shallow criticism and live. I wasn't labeling a person, that would have been rude and plain stupid.

Resembles the promotional art for Destiny 2 and other multiplayer-centric games. Doesn’t look good for people still hoping there would be a campaign.

uhuh sure *wink* leaked. Seriously though Activision you haven't published a good game in a decade.

That's likely not the box art, it's just promotional art. That I found on an advertisement that went up early on IGN's front page. And CharlieIntel didn't spot it, that's literally my screencap that I posted on reddit that he took.
