Black Ops 4 Infected Mode | PS4, Xbox One, and PC release dates

Black Ops 4 Infected mode is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC very shortly. If you want the lowdown on when the Blops 4 Infected release date is for each platform, look no further than this guide. Read on to see when the Black Ops 4 Infected mode lands ahead of its shambling debut.

If you’re a PS4 owner, you’re in luck when it comes to getting first dibs on the Black Ops 4 Infected mode. Players will be able to jump into this multiplayer game type when the next patch goes live on Tuesday, April 9. This is due to Sony having an exclusivity period with Treyarch and Activision to get new content first.

There’s been no word from Treyarch about when the new update will go live. From past experience though, we expect it to be patched into the game at 10 AM PDT (1 PM PDT and 6 PM BST) so you won’t have long to wait to play it.

Sony’s exclusivity window means that Xbox One and PC players will have to wait a bit longer to play Black Ops 4 Infected mode.

Usually PS4 players have around two weeks to play any new content before it drops on Xbox One and PC. For the recently introduced Alcatraz map for Blackout mode, PS4 players only had a week to try it out before it came to other platforms though.

Adding all of that together, it’s very likely that Xbox One and PC owners can play Infected mode in late April. We suspect it’ll drop around April 23, which will be just in time for the Easter weekend.

We’re not sure if Black Ops 4 Infected mode will be around forever. Treyarch has a habit of bringing game types into the game, removing them from rotation for a spell, and then bringing them back for a specific period of time. In our opinion, it’s likely that Infected mode will follow a similar pattern.
