Activision and Treyarch could also be discarding long-standing Call of Duty custom with the upcoming Black Ops 4. According to a report from Polygon, there won’t be a standard single-player story mode within the sport.
Word comes from nameless “sources with knowledge of the project’s status,” who say that as launch time for Black Ops Four approached, it turned clear that the deliberate single-player marketing campaign wouldn’t be accomplished on time. Treyarch are reportedly engaged on increasing each multiplayer and zombies modes, and it appears they’re taking a look at an emphasis on co-op modes as a stand-in for a standard marketing campaign.
It makes a bizarre kind of sense, as just a few weeks in the past we heard phrase that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered would be single-player only. If packaged as an incentive with Black Ops 4, it may function a single-player complement to the brand new sport’s options, although that’s pure hypothesis at this level.
For their half, Activision responded to the report with the basic “We don’t comment on rumor and speculation,” and pointed towards their deliberate reveal occasion for the sport on May 17.
