During its first quarter 2018 investor call, Activision-Blizzard offered numerous updates on its franchises including Call of Duty. Activision revealed that Monthly Active Users for the quarter was at 51 million and player engagement had grown year-over-year.

Call of Duty purchases are up year-over-year with Call of Duty: WW2 only trailing behind Black Ops 3 in the first quarter. Activision revealed that the latter was its most popular “sub-franchise” – the series has seen 200 million players with over 15 billion hours played. As such more content like events and updates – like the recent Operation Swarm for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – would be coming.

As for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Activision revealed that it “plans to be number one again” and that it will have “multiplayer innovations.” Not much else was revealed beyond that but the publisher noted that it was confident in developer Treyarch. “A number of great developments on the core game itself beyond innovations” could be expected by players as per the publisher.

The reveal event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be coming on May 17th, so we’ll presumably learn if there is a story campaign or not (along with Battle Royale). The full game is out on October 12th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
