Call of Duty first released the trailer for the newest installment, Black Ops 4, March 8, 2018. Since the trailer release, the community was left wondering what “Forget What You Know” meant. Every person watching saw the infamous phrase at the end of the trailer. If you do not remember what the trailer included or if you haven’t seen it, you can find it below:
Forget What You Know
This little catchphrase has left us wondering what in the world it means! Do we forget everything we know about Call of Duty in general? Do we forget what we know about the Black Ops series? There have been quite a few YouTube videos that have come out with people’s ideas. One YouTuber known as BiblicalReaper shared his thoughts about the now famous catchphrase. You can find his YouTube channel here. BiblicalReaper states in the video that he thinks we will be revisiting things from the past Black Ops series. He goes on to say:
I think what this is gonna do is tie the whole Black Ops universe together. And I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. I still think with Black Ops 3 and them changing Redwood to the snow, that has something to do with Black Ops 4.
In case you don’t remember, Treyarch released an update back at the beginning of March. This update introduced a revamped Redwood map, and it became Redwood Snow, as seen below:
Typically, I like to keep opinions to myself on gaming related topics because they are often a mix of things I’ve searched. Some people might consider them a little bit biased for that reason. However, with the newly found information released today, it takes a turn from what we used to know.
What does this actually mean?
In another article last night, Gaming INTEL reaffirmed their prediction of Battle Royale coming to Call of Duty Black Ops 4, with reports of Activision cancelling the single player campaign mode and Raven Software tasked with developing Battle Royale.
Could this be the part where we forget what we’ve ever known about Call of Duty? No campaign mode, and a battle royale introduced?! Gaming Intel also touched base on a Battle Royale mode for Black Ops 4 back in March, which you can find here.
Either way, we know “Forget What You Know” plays a large part in the marketing campaign from Activision. In the very first tweet when the teaser trailer was revealed on March 8th, it was the very first line.
