We've written before about Nick Kyrgios' penchant for video games, and his potential for brutalising other tennis players in the virtual arena. Naturally, it's not hard to imagine that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is his kind of game.

I'd just come home from work, a three-hour train ride, and I'd spent half an hour having a quick Call of Duty scrim with some former Counter-Strike friends. We'd largely abandoned CS competitively by that stage, due to a combination of work, fatigue with the scene or changing lives, and played Call of Duty 4 for fun instead.
It was still organised, but without the divisive thirst for blood. And that environment inadvertently led my Dad to make a passing remark one evening, a comment at the dinner table that I've never forgotten to this day.
"You're laughing a lot more these days," he said.
When the makers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 announced yesterday that the upcoming game will come with its very own battle royale mode, Blackout, they refrained from answering one big question: How many people will it support? The answer, it appears, is that developer Treyarch just doesn't know yet.
Today at an event in Los Angeles, developer Treyarch put on a show to reveal new info about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which will be out October 12 for PC (on Battle.net), PS4, and Xbox One. Seems like this will be a break from traditional Call of Duty in a whole lot of ways, as we expected.
It isn't quite official yet, but it's a near-certainty that the next Call of Duty is Black Ops 4. Rumours have been swirling about this for a few weeks now (as first reported by Eurogamer), and Kotaku can confirm via our own sources that those rumours are true. Plus, there's today's assist from a future NBA MVP.
