Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 reportedly won't have a solo campaign

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Will Have Battle Royale Mode

Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Will Have Battle Royale Mode

What's more, these rumors also state that a battle royale mode is coming to Black Ops 4, as yet another big IP jumps in on the popular "last-man-standing" online game mode that's dominating the competitive multiplayer scene at present.

Polygon contacted Activision who responded with "We don't comment on rumor and speculation".

Activision will reveal its plans for Black Ops 4 on May 18 NZT.

It appears that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not have a single-player campaign, according to Polygon. Battle Royale modes, where gamers fight to the death until only one player survives to take home the chicken dinner are incredibly popular on traditional consoles, PC, and mobile devices. They've also said the main studio behind the game, Treyarch, has thus been focusing on multiplayer and the now annualized zombie mode.

The World Bank's policy committee has approved a $13 billion increase in the bank's lending capacity. Finance leaders repeatedly sounded warnings about a potential trade war.

Additionally, according to a report from Eurogamer, Black Ops 4 will have a battle royale mode. This has seemed to result in a design pivot, with Treyarch then deciding to focus on expanding the scope of the multiplayer component, and the game's trademark Zombies mode. While sacrificing the entire story mode of Black Ops 4 may be a bold decision to make, replacing it with a bloodthirsty battle royale is one way to divert attention away from the issue. Which sounds a tad negligent since nowadays, development of Activision's annual Call of Duty instalment is shared between three developers - Treyarch, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games - so each has three years of development time. Call of Duty World League players compete for prizes that are worth $4.2 million this season and travel across the globe in stick-to-stick combat. What we do know is that there will be a reveal event happening around the game, officially, next month.

Call of Duty is unlikely to follow the same approach of having a single base game supported by a wealth of updates and loot boxes without releasing a new game a year later.

First reported by Polygon, there multiple sources claiming that the single-player mode would not be finished by the October 12th release date due to the shorten time frame. No AAA publisher has released a game with a 100-player battle royale mode, so it's possible we may see an evolution of the mode.
