Campaign Is Out Battle Royale In
A source close to the Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 project has claimed that Black Ops 4 will not ship with the traditional campaign mode but will instead come with a Battle Royale mode instead.
When Activision was asked for a comment by Polygon on this subject there response was as expected “We don’t comment on rumor and speculation. We look forward to revealing Black Ops 4 on May 17th.”
The sources, who asked for anonymity, said that as Black Ops 4’s release date approached, it became evident that development on the single-player campaign wouldn’t be completed. One source said Treyarch has since focused Black Ops 4’s development on expanding multiplayer and the series’ popular Zombies mode. The source described an emphasis on cooperative modes as a potential stand-in for the typical single-player campaign experience.
Given the popularity of the Battle Royale mode within the games industry at the moment there could well be some truth that Activision is stepping away from the standard campaign for the first time in Call Of Duty history and looking to evolve the Call Of Duty franchise.
