The upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 game will not be developed for the Nintendo Switch console.

The game’s developer, Treyarch, confirmed this on March 18th, dispelling the rumors that the next CoD title would be available on Nintendo’s hybrid console. 

Since Black Ops 4 was officially announced on March 8th, the vast CoD community waited in anticipation for the worldwide Community Reveal Event that took place on May 17th.

During the event, Treyarch unveiled various details and aspects about the game’s modes, including Multiplayer, Zombies, and the brand new ‘Blackout’ Battle Royale.

Video game news outlet Twinfinite had the chance to speak with two high ranking members of Treyarch and asked them about the possibility of Black Ops 4 being on the Nintendo Switch.

Twinfinite recently sat down with Yale Miller, senior producer at Treyarch, and Matt Scronce, gameplay designer at Treyarch, for a roundtable interview. We ended the interview by asking “Are there any plans to bring any aspect of Black Ops 4 to Nintendo Switch?”

Miller’s response to this was quick and brief, with him simply saying without hesitation “No there is not.” It’s clear that the team at Treyarch is focusing on delivering a big new experience on the usual systems, and porting the game to Switch would be at least a small undertaking whether it was by Treyarch or another company. For now at least, Call of Duty fans will need to get their fix outside of the Switch.

This is unfortunate news for Nintendo fans who would have gotten excited after seeing this recent image of what appeared to be Black Ops 4 Switch game cases on the shelves of a GameStop store.

 

It certainly would have been interesting to see the game be available on the Nintendo Switch since the console offers users equally full functionality both at home and on the go.

However, considering how much extra effort Treyarch have put in on the PC side of the Black Ops 4 development, having the game on the Switch was always going to be too tall of an order.

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600
  • Armor – 700
  • Spy Plane – 800
  • Counter Spy Plane – 900
  • Flamethrower – 1,000
  • Care Package – 1,250
  • Sentry Turret – 1,400
  • Death Machine – 1,500
  • Cruise Missile – 1,750
  • Artillery – 2,000
  • Hand Cannon –  2,250
  • Napalm Strike – 2,500
  • Air Patrol – 3,000
  • War Machine – 3,250
  • Strafe Run – 3,500
  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000
  • H.A.R.P. – 5,000
  • Chopper Gunner – 6,000
  • VTOL Escort – 8,000
  • Gunship – 10,000

Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
