'Black Ops 4' Will Ditch Single-Player Campaign For Battle Royale Mode

Black Ops 4

Black Ops 4

Yesterday, news broke that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would be the first mainline Call of Duty game without a traditional campaign mode.

Activision is not confirming anything now, stating, "We don't comment on rumor and speculation".

Gaming Twitter erupted in shock Tuesday afternoon after news that Activision could be removing its single-player game type in its newest Call of Duty title.

Originally, anonymous sources from Treyarch suggested that another mode would replace Back Ops IV's campaign.

Until the big reveal of Call of Duty Black Ops 4, we won't know for sure, but with a few credible sources now confidently stating that it's multiplayer only with a focus on Battle Royale, it's looking likely.

The team said it will provide updates on Farquhar's health as appropriate, but requested privacy for the family. Farquhar had just pitched two-thirds of an inning, allowing two runs on two hits and striking out one batter.

To add to this, both CharlieIntel and Kotaku have confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will contain a battle royale mode that's being developed by Raven Software.

Which isn't to say that dropping the single-player story is a risk-free strategy-obviously it's quite the opposite-but the Call of Duty series has historically been about multiplayer anyway. Many developers are taking notice and attempting to get their games on the bandwagon, and the next game could be Call of Duty. Activision, of course, is not commenting on the matter, instead choosing to wait until the game's full reveal next month.

According to that site's sources, it is because it became clear to this year's CoD developer Treyarch that the single-player campaign wouldn't be completed in time.

Activision has refused to provide comment on any of this for now, but Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 still remains slated to release on October 12, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is hard to believe as Treyarch had 3 years to develop the game, more than enough time for a studio of this scale; this isn't their first time at the rodeo. This merits Call of Duty above first-person shooters of that generation.

The next installment in the famed Call of Duty: Black Ops franchise will separate itself from previous games thanks to a bold decision.
