PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 exclusive to Battle.net
Largest development team assembled for a PC title in the series
Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PC will launch exclusively on Blizzard's Battle.net store and digital client. This follows Destiny 2 as another title from the publisher that was exclusive to the platform.
“The Black Ops community means everything to us, so we knew in order to deliver something really special for our fans like Blackout, with the biggest map we’ve ever created in Call of Duty, we had to push ourselves and our tech to the absolute limits,” said Mark Gordon, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “The same goes for our PC community. They have inspired and fueled us to set a new standard on PC across every aspect from dedicated servers and security to full optimization and polish that’s worthy of both Black Ops and Battle.net.”
For the PC, Treyarch is co-developing with Beenox, who together are working closely with Blizzard to optimize Black Ops 4 for Battle.net. Black Ops 4 represents the largest development team assembled for a PC title in the series.
Black Ops 4 on PC promises an uncapped framerate, 4K resolution and HDR, support for ultra-wide monitors and the ability for players to extensively customize the performance and visual quality for their specific hardware. In addition, players will be able to select from pre-set control options, including options for left-handed players, or fully customize the keyboard and mouse controls to their preference.
Treyarch and Beenox worked closely with the team at Blizzard to incorporate Battle.net’s social systems, security, and server stability.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will launch on PC this October 12th, alongside the console versions.
