So, there’s a rumour doing the rounds right now that the newer Call of Duty game, mysterious names Black Ops 4, May not launch with a single player campaign. According to an insider source speaking to Polygon, Treyarch have been focussed so heavily on the multiplayer component that they haven’t had time to develop a single player story campaign.
This may not come as a huge surprise to many players. The series is better known for its multiplayer and zombies modes than it is for its campaigns these days. Having said that, I was partial to the occasional CoD campaign and wouldn’t buy a new entry in the series for a solely multiplayer experience. Maybe that’s just me though.
The fact there’s such a push on multiplayer ties in with a further rumour that they may be looking to include the mode de jour: Battle Royale. As a multiplayer mode in a fast paced game like Call of Duty, this is an interesting, though unsurprising, inclusion.
At any rate, a rumour is just a rumour until it’s proven true or otherwise, and the game is due for a proper reveal in May, so perhaps take this with a pinch of salt for the time being.
