Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 May Get Battle Royale Mode Instead

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

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

Gaming Twitter erupted in shock Tuesday afternoon after news that Activision could be removing its single-player game type in its newest Call of Duty title. Kotaku also did a little digging on the subject and corroborated Polygon's story regarding the single player campaign as well as the Battle Royale rumor.

If true, Black Ops IIII would be the first Call of Duty title to not include a single-player campaign. To make up for the lack of campaign, there will be a bigger focus on Zombies and possibly some additional co-op modes. Additionally, sources close to the game have also mentioned that Raven Software is working on a battle royale mode, making Black Ops 4 a more multiplayer-centric experience than previous installments.

Additionally, according to a report from Eurogamer, Black Ops 4 will have a battle royale mode. Some do in fact play Call of Duty for the story.

We all know that every annual Call of Duty game has always had a single player campaign, in addition to its popular multiplayer component, right? The game will be launching on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12.

While it makes sense from a business perspective, a battle royale mode doesn't seem like the best fit for the Call of Duty series.

The 2018 edition of Call of Duty is likely to downplay singleplayer elements and is adding a battle royale mode, according to several reports.

If this news is accurate, it may account for a few puzzling Call Of Duty headlines that have emerged over the past few weeks. Polygon reported that since the multi-year development cycle for Black Ops 4 pushed its release toward October, it became clear that the single-player campaign would not be completed.

Activision was contacted by the outlet for comment before the report went live. We'll find out what's going on with the game when Activision debuts it to the world on May 17th. The game is being developed by Treyarch Studios and will be published by Activision.

The CoD franchise distinguished its campaign mode in early games with stunning visualizations, cinematic storylines and unique missions that sent players on excursions of the past, present and future.
