Report: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Will Shift Focus Away From Single-Player

Black Ops 4

According to sources at charlieINTEL, a Call of Duty-centric gaming news website, the future release of CoD: Black Ops 4 in late 2018 may include a "Battle Royale" mode developed by Raven Software.

A battle royale mode in a Call of Duty game has been anticipated by many, though there's some surprise that it'll come so soon. "We look forward to revealing Black Ops 4 on May 17th". With Black Ops 4, the series may be embracing the growing trend of online multiplayer shooters like Overwatch, Fortnite, and PUBG. Because of this, it was mentioned that Treyarch made a decision to instead focus on both the multiplayer and the zombies portion of the gameplay, making the cooperative experience more even more emphasized. Today, however, Polygon dropped a big rumor bomb by citing multiple sources who say that the game will ship with no single-player campaign at all, on any platform. Instead, Treyarch is apparently focusing on expanding the multiplayer element, including the Zombies mode and possibly some new co-op modes. Though at the cost of a single-player campaign is truly weird. That being said, the Call of Duty franchise has had some pretty phenomenal single-player campaigns in the past (Ghost!). Speaking to anonymous sources, the site reports that Treyarch has instead chose to focus on the multiplayer and Zombies mode. However, that's not what the rumor stated, and until we hear more, I'm going to assume this is something we should all swallow with a grain of salt.

This would make Black Ops 4 the first major Call of Duty title to ship without a standard story.
