That led to fans giving Battlefield 1’s reveal video the most likes ever for a game trailer (a record that still stands) while Infinite Warfare’s announcement video has more than 1 million downvotes on YouTube.
According to Polygon’s sources, the single-player campaign was no-where near completion despite being months away from release, so Treyarch made a decision to put more emphasis on multiplayer and the co-op experience.
The Call of Duty series has put a more significant focus on its multiplayer aspects since Modern Warfare was released in 2007. They claim that their sources tell them that a battle royale mode will be coming to Black Ops 4, though the specifics on how it will work were not mentioned.
It certainly sounds like Call of Duty in 2018 will be different, with earlier reports suggesting that a new Remastered game is also being launched.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 12. The franchise started off with a heavy emphasis on single-player experiences a decade and a half ago, but through the years, it has progressively become more about multiplayer gameplay.
When contacted for comment, Activision said: “We don’t comment on rumour and speculation”. According to reports, we’ll find out what exactly makes Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 a Black Ops game if there is no solo campaign mode. Some do in fact play Call of Duty for the story. A May 17 event will provide most of those details. A single-player campaign was being developed. If a battle royale mod does indeed come to Call of Duty, it’ll be the first major franchise to implement such a feature, rather than the comparatively smaller studios that worked on PUBG and Fortnite.
In addition, there are multiple reports suggesting that the upcoming Call of Duty title will ditch the long-running single player campaign.
The game mode typically tasks a large group of players with being the last-man standing. Well you can forget about that, because Treyarch is apparently bringing us a sequel that’ll focus exclusively on online content, with no campaign attached to Blacks Ops 4 whatsoever, according to unofficial reports.
