Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

A Call of Duty high-up has defended the lack of a single-player campaign in the upcoming Black Ops 4.

In an interview with Gamespot, Call of Duty executive VP and GM Robert Kostich stated the lack of a campaign isn’t a big problem at all.

Kostich stated:


“As we go forward [through the year], fans are going to learn a lot about the story that is embedded in this game. Look, it’s not a dedicated campaign like it was in the past. We’re telling stories differently this year. We think our community is going to love this game from end to end, because it has so much to offer. The core focus of it, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem really.

I think what our community is going to love at the end of the day comes down to the gameplay and the fun you have with it. And I think that’s what this game is going to have in spades. This is a little different from what we’ve done in the past.”

It seems that although Black Ops 4 will not feature a solo campaign, it will still have solo, story-driven experiences.
