  • Sources Say Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to Ditch Traditional Single-Player Campaign

    According to a report that went up today from Polygon, Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will not feature a "traditional" single-player campaign. It will instead focus more on the multiplayer and Zombie modes.

    Sources close to Polygon said that development by Treyarch on Black Ops IIII has been going rather poorly. As a result, it seems as though the single-player campaign wasn't going to be completed in time for the game's release date, which is still set for October 12, 2018. At some point, development then switched away from creating the single player campaign to expanding the game's multiplayer and Zombies modes.

    The source then goes on to say that there is a greater emphasis on "cooperative modes as a potential stand-in for the typical single-player campaign experience."

    Now, if you combine Black Ops IIII with the remaster of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which reportedly only includes the single-player component, then you essentially have a full game on your hands! All you'll need to do is pay twice the price. What a bargain!

    Hey, maybe they should just go ahead and delay the release for all of this? Maybe push it back a year? You think maybe that would make some sense? Naw, that will never happen.

    Maybe this rumor is a load of hot air. We won't know until the official reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII comes on May 17. The last game Treyarch developed was Call of Duty: Black Ops III back in 2015. Meaning that the studio should have had roughly three years of development time to work on Black Ops IIII.

    God, what an absolute mess this all is.

      What a mess this all COULD be, too early to say, i don't doubt the sources it would just be a strange thing to happen.
      I personally like playing through a COD campaign, there are no single player first person shooters coming out these days and it's still an experience i enjoy.
      If true i'm very interested to see what they deliver instead, CODWW2 continues to be a mediocre to poor experience daily for me though i'm enjoying unlocking things, so i look forward to ditching it as soon as possible.

      The last SP campaign in CoD that didn't bore me silly was MW3, because it was so daft and bombastic, like Michael Bay got together witg Broken Lizard or something. Serious attempts at plot and I get really bored one third through. Only in fact played one mission from WW2, and never finished WaW despite general Jack Bauer presiding.

      I only finished Blops ones through some sort of exciting payoff hopes, that turned out to be in vain.
