Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has, according to multiple sources, no single-player campaign mode.
Originally reported by Polygon, sources “with knowledge of the project’s status” said development of the single-player component was being scrapped.
These sources then stated that developer Treyarch is focused on expanding things like Zombie mode and other multiplayer modes.
There was further mention of an emphasis on co-op, and this could be in place of a purely single-player campaign.
This was corroborated by Eurogamer, who stated that the reports tally with their own sources. Reportedly receiving information back in February, the report states that there is a heavier emphasis on multiplayer components.
Specialist website CharlieINTEL reported that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will feature a Battle Royale mode co-developed with Raven Software.
Eurogamer also added:
“Adding context, our source said COD’s Battle Royale mode may not hit the magic 100 player mark seen in other Battle Royale games at the time Black Ops 4 comes out, but developers are working towards that number.”
