Black Ops 4 reportedly won't have a single-player campaign

Black Ops 4 reportedly won't have a single-player campaign

The Battle Royale mode is said to be in development with Raven Software, which has had a hand in every Call of Duty title since the original Black Ops.

The sources, who asked for anonymity, said that as Black Ops 4's release date approached, it became evident that development on the single-player campaign wouldn't be completed.

I've reached out to Activision for comment and will update if I receive a reply.

If this news is accurate, it may account for a few puzzling Call Of Duty headlines that have emerged over the past few weeks.

Arguably, many of those products, from medicine to fuel, potentially put more Americans at greater risk than Facebook does. And as for Dr Kogan, the university had written to Facebook about its allegations against him but had not received a reply.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was confirmed in early March, but isn't slated to be fully revealed until May. Sources with knowledge of the project have told the outlet that it became evident as the game's fall launch date approached that they would not have time to finish the campaign and have since made a decision to scrap it. In some sense, it gives credence to the report's claims of not being able to meet deadlines to finish a sufficient campaign. Black Ops 4 launches on October 12th.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is due out later this year, won't ship with a single-player mode, according to Polygon.

Activision is expected to reveal the details on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at a reveal event on May 17. Through this new sales model, it seems Activision might be trying to split Call Of Duty into two yearly revenue streams instead of one.

Dropping the campaign from Black Ops 4 would be a big change, but not entirely unprecedented.
