it will actually be Modern Warfare 4. All early signs have pointed towards the next part of the iconic Infinity Ward series, which hasn’t had a release since 2011.

A ton of ‘leaks’ and rumors have surfaced in the meantime, yet, Activision has remained vague about what they will be publishing – only teasing a return to game’s roots and a “game-changing” experience. Yet, they’ve finally let slip just when we will be able to see what they have for us.

Infinity WardPlenty of ‘details’ have been ‘leaked’ about MW4 – but is it actually the game we’re getting?

When will Call of Duty 2019 be revealed?

During the company’s quarterly earnings call on May 2, Activision, again, walked back over old ground with their excitement about the next title and just how “game-changing” they believe that Infinity Ward’s new release will be.

However, there was also a somewhat firm confirmation of when we can expect to see an announcement about the next title. Activision revealed that the game will be revealed before the end of this financial quarter – which ends on June 30.

While there was no exact date announced, we know that we will be seeing the next installment of the iconic franchise sooner rather than later. Previous Infinity Ward releases have traditionally been announced towards the end of May, so while the long wait appears to be drawing to a close, there is still some time to go just yet.

Black Ops 4 will receive further content

While Activision was focused on reiterating some of the details they’ve already spoken about when it comes to the next game, they did also confirm that Black Ops 4 will not fall to the wayside anytime soon.

During the call, the publisher’s noted that Black Ops 4’s total hours played growing double digits year over year when compared to WWII and that new content, modes, and events will be released moving forward to “sustain reach and attract new users.”

It remains to be seen just what operations and further plans that Treyarch has up their sleeve.

3 tips to help you survive Black Ops Cold War’s new Zombies Cranked mode

With the release of Black Ops Cold War’s mid-season update, Treyarch has added Cranked into the game’s Zombies mode – and it’s pretty different from the standard version, requiring some completely separate strategies. 

While Cranked in Call of Duty games is nothing new, having debuted all the way back in 2013’s Ghosts, what is different is a Zombies version of the mode, which was just added to Black Ops Cold War during the game’s midseason update.

The concept is simple: You’re given a timer, and when that timer reaches 0, you explode and die. With each kill, however, your timer resets, giving you more time to keep on grinding. It’s an incredibly fast-paced mode in normal multiplayer, and the Zombies version is even more hectic – but there are some tips you can utilize to help you survive longer.

Pace out your kills

Activision
Pacing out your kills in Cranked is important due to the fact that you only need one kill to reset your timer.

In standard Cranked, players are usually scrambling to get kills. In a 5v5 or 6v6, it makes sense, considering there’s only a limited amount of potential targets, and if you can’t find anyone, you’ll die easily due to the timer running out.

With BOCW Zombies Cranked, the opposite is true. There’s always an abundance of enemies and, while it’s not impossible to run out of targets, generally speaking, they’ll keep on spawning (there’s not even a break in-between rounds).

Because of this, there’s no need to be mowing down Zombies as one does in the normal mode. Instead, if you’re feeling overwhelmed (or if you want to get something done like Pack-A-Punching your weapon), try running away from the enemies for a while to get your bearings.

Remember, all it takes is one kill to reset your timer. If you find it running out, just look behind you at the horde you’ve surely amounted, kill one Zombie, and then move along with your business. Wasting your time mowing down each and every zombie can cost you your game.

With all that being said, don’t think you can run away from the Zombies with no problem; if you get too far away, you’ll find yourself struggling for kills, so it’s best if you stay nearby.

Use fast-reloading weapons and attachments

Activision
You’ll want to use weapons that can be reloaded quickly in Cranked.

In normal Zombies, using a LMG is sort of required during late-game conflicts, as it allows you to mow down Zombies with greater power. In Cranked, speed is king, so it might be better to use something smaller like an SMG.

Reloading fast is essential in Cranked, as you can easily become overrun. Even though it does have a lot of power, you don’t want to waste your time on the horrendously slow reload time found on LMGs. If you want an even faster reload time, you could even throw a fast-mag onto your SMG, and get it done even quicker.

In addition, SMGs have the added benefit of allowing you to run faster, meaning you’ll be able to evade Zombies even better than you would before.

Always go for the Timer Freeze power up

Activision
Remembering these tips can be the difference between surviving or dying early on.

Treyarch has implemented a brand new power-up that’s exclusive to the Cranked game mode: Timer Freeze. With this, players will be able to stop their countdown timer for around 15 seconds or so, giving them a breather.

While this might seem obvious to point out, you’ll want to go for those as much as possible. Getting one at the start of your game is not too important, but it’s especially critical when you get into the late game.

As the mode goes on, your timer will get shorter and shorter, meaning every break you get becomes more and more important. Having that 15 second breather seems like an eternity once you get it, so missing out on one can hurt you a lot – sometimes costing you your life.

While Cranked is incredibly fast-paced, it’s really not that bad if you know what you’re doing. If you remember these tips, you shouldn’t have as much of a problem.
