According to a press release from Activision, the combined number of Black Ops 4 players across its three modes (competitive multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout) has surpassed that of Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's single player, multiplayer and Zombies modes.
Black Ops 4 is available exclusively on Battle.net, but the lack of a Steam release hasn't hurt the game any. The previous three games in the Black Ops series debuted in 2010, 2012, and 2015 respectively, and combined have sold over 86 million copies worldwide in addition to receiving critical acclaim.

Special teams issues doom Bears against Patriots
To make things worse, in the second quarter they lost their leading rusher, rookie running back Sony Michel, to a knee injury. With Gronkowski out against the Bears, he came up big-time in a game where they really needed him to be a big-play weapon.
The only changes that were applied to Blackout in this latest patch concern players counts in battle royale's various playlists.
Black Ops 4's multiplayer is spectacularly good, though. Conflict is new, offering a spin on Domination: one team defends and the other attacks in a bid to acquire control of two designated areas, each with three control bars. After a successful beta run and official game release, judging by the reaction of people I would say that the franchise made a comeback! It's about as close-in, fast and furious as Call of Duty gets. Are you enjoying Black Ops 4? We'll be sure to update this feature as that information becomes available, as well as provide more detail on the characters we're now missing.
