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

    Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII
    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.
