Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 could skip single-player campaign mode

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 could skip single-player campaign mode

ICYMI: Activision are "Keenly Aware" of Battle Royale Games Success!

Sarah Needleman, Technology Reporter for the WSJ, tweeted in March 2018 that Activision Management reminded investors that it was "keenly aware of how other game publishers have recently benefited from releasing titles in the popular "battle royale" genre". Well you can forget about that, because Treyarch is apparently bringing us a sequel that'll focus exclusively on online content, with no campaign attached to Blacks Ops 4 whatsoever, according to unofficial reports. This would make "Black Ops 4" the first game in the main series without a campaign due to it not being ready for the title's October 12 release date. That being the case, the devs instead made a decision to emphasize cooperative modes to stand-in for a traditional campaign. Because of this, it was mentioned that Treyarch chose to instead focus on both the multiplayer and the zombies portion of the gameplay, making the cooperative experience more even more emphasized. However, the inference from Polygon's report is that the single-player mode has been completely scrapped. Sources tell Eurogamer that the mode won't feature the traditional 100 players on a map when the game launches, but that Treyarch is working towards that number.

One can argue that the single-player experience is changing.

Both Kotaku and Polygon reached out to Activision for comments. Is anyone surprised by this news? There's no single-player game version of Black Ops 4. That isn't to say the mode isn't appreciated by gamers. Their first game in the series was Call of Duty: World at War in 2008 and they started the Black Ops series in 2010. Right behind Fortnite in popularity is PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), another battle royale styled game that features a bigger map, vehicles, first-person shooting, and a more realistic setting. So until then we'll just have to wait, see and ponder. At least in the past two years Call of Duty has delivered some great campaigns with Infinite Warfare and WW2. Again, we'll see what's what in May. Make sure to let us know in the comments what you think about the choice.
