Call of Duty players have just finished the second Black Ops 4 beta test with the highly anticipated Blackout battle royale mode next up.
Activision have already confirmed that in September the Blackout beta will be launched, one month ahead of the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 release date.
Blackout is the brand new and highly anticipated battle royale mode for Call of Duty and marks COD’s first attempt at the huge new genre.
And ahead of the Blackout beta being launched, Activision has issued a warning to Call of Duty Black Ops 4 players.
In a post on Reddit developers Treyarch revealed that those who took part in the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 beta should not delete their game files.
This is because the game file from the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 beta will be updated for the Blackout beta.
So, once that goes live there will be no need for Call of Duty fans to re-download Black Ops 4 again.
Treyarch posted: “Thank you everyone for the feedback from this weekend. As you get to take a breath, let us know your thoughts.
“Also, quick heads-up that the game file from this weekend will be updated for the upcoming Blackout beta, so no need to download the full game again.”
An official release date for the Blackout beta has not been revealed yet.
However, it looks like an announcement on the Blackout beta launch could be coming soon.
In a blog post at the end of the Black Ops 4 beta Treyarch said Blackout fans could “expect to get some insight into what’s next pretty soon”.
They added: “After all, September is only a few weeks away”.
This could be a tease that the Blackout beta release date will be revealed by Activision within the next few weeks.
David Vonderhaar, Studio Design Director at Treyarch, spoke last month about the upcoming Blackout mode.
He said: “Everyone who works on Blackout or plays is always eager to share a story they have.
“That game session might be a triumphant victory or a tragic loss — it might be how land, sea, and air vehicles collided in unexpected ways for a final showdown — or, it just might be a funny fail moment.
“No matter what, when people get done playing and want to tell the story of what happened to them afterwards, you know you have something special.”
While Treyarch Senior Producer Yale Miller added: “The team has been having a ridiculous amount of fun playing it internally.
“We are so excited to be able to share that fun with you in September.
“The community feedback generated from going hands-on is always incredibly important, and it’s never been more so than with Blackout.”
