While time will tell if Overlord is the fourth film in the Cloverfield universe (following the October 27th, 2017 release of God Particle), the World War II thriller now has a release date for fans to look forward to.
According to multiple sources, including Variety, Overlord will be released on October 26th, 2018. If Overlord is indeed a Cloverfield movie, it would join the 2008 film, last year's 10 Cloverfield Lane, and the upcoming God Particle in the expanding cinematic universe.

On the eve of D-Day, a group of American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success. But as they approach their target, they begin to realize there is more going on in this Nazi-occupied village than a simple military operation.
