This year’s Call of Duty title will be a third entry in the Black Ops sub-franchise, Activision has confirmed.

“After working in the shadows, the team at Treyarch returns this year with Call of Duty: Black Ops III,” said the publisher.

“There’s so much to talk about and I’m sure you all have plenty of questions, but the good news is you won’t have to wait long for answers – the world reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops III is set for Sunday, April 26, so stay tuned for details.”

That’s Monday April 27 for us.

"It feels good to be back," developer Treyarch tweeted.

"It feels even better to be #BackInBlack. Let's do this."
