Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may ditch single-player campaign

Inside sources revealed to Polygon that Treyarch will instead focus on expanding Black Ops 4 multiplayer component and the popular Zombies mode.

Neither of these rumors have yet to be confirmed by Activision and we don't see that happening any time soon.

Quality single-player modes are what made Black Ops series stand out from what Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer brought forth over the years, scrapping this aspect seems highly unlikely so forgive us if we are skeptical of these "sources".

Black Ops 4 may be the first game in franchise history to release without a single-player campaign.

The overall consensus here is that Activision is making a very poor decision by ignoring the solo campaign in favor of the latest gaming fad (Battle Royale).

The final rumor circling out there is that Black Ops 4 may contain a Battle Royale mode, as reported by Eurogamer and Charlie Intel. It could just tie into the series' love of weird brainwashing narratives, but it's just as likely a message to players who have always been clamoring for a multiplayer-only Call of Duty experience. The game is set to launch October 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Another report suggests that Raven Software is not working on the new remaster project, but are apparently involved in the new Battle Royale mode development. This is also despite the respective development teams now having three years in which to complete a Call of Duty game. According to the report, the next Call of Duty game could have a battle royale mode. Black Ops 4 faces a similar situation with an October 12 release date that should see it rub shoulders with the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, and possibly Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, as well as Battlefield V.

If the said report is true, it'll be the first time a significant publisher has jumped on the Battle Royale bandwagon for a major game. What we do know is that there will be a reveal event happening around the game, officially, next month. The studio is supposed to unveil the game on May 17th, at which point it'll have to show fans exactly what they can expect from the new game. The game is being developed by Treyarch Studios and will be published by Activision.
