Activision and Treyarch may be discarding long-standing Call of Duty tradition with the upcoming Black Ops 4. According to a report from Polygon, there will not be a traditional single-player story mode in the game.
Word comes from anonymous “sources with knowledge of the project’s status,” who say that as release time for Black Ops 4 approached, it became clear that the planned single-player campaign wouldn’t be completed on time. Treyarch are reportedly working on expanding both multiplayer and zombies modes, and it seems they’re looking at an emphasis on co-op modes as a stand-in for a traditional campaign.
It makes a weird sort of sense, as a few weeks ago we heard word that Modern Warfare 2 Remastered would be single-player only. If packaged as an incentive with Black Ops 4, it could serve as a single-player complement to the new game’s features, though that’s pure speculation at this point.
For their part, Activision responded to the report with the classic “We don’t comment on rumor and speculation,” and pointed toward their planned reveal event for the game on May 17.
