All news, up to now, suggest that we may not be receiving a single player Black ops 4 campaign. Rumours have indicated that a single player campaign would not be ready in time for an October release schedule. This supposedly made Treyarch boldly decide to focus its efforts and resources on the multiplayer and zombies aspect of Black Ops 4. The single player campaign throughout Call of Duty has always provided players with a basis for the theme throughout. Multiplayer map locations, weapons used, characters and even core game mechanics are drip fed to players whilst playing this campaign mode. Of course, the longevity and overall success of the Call of Duty franchise are made predominantly through its online experience, whether typically multiplayer or zombies.
However, this does not mean that the community, as a whole, want a Call of Duty game without, at least, the option for a single player Black Ops 4 campaign.
Just to reiterate, the information we have received so far is not concrete and even a spokesperson for Activision has said that “We don’t comment on rumour and speculation. We look forward to revealing Black Ops 4 on May 17th.”
Will we get a single player Black Ops 4 campaign?
In an interesting turn of events, we have found some information that ignites our hope for a single player Black Ops 4 campaign. A Twitter user who goes by the name of @TheGamingRevoHD has found an online retailer, called Very.co.uk, listing a pre-order for Black Ops 4.
This is not out of the ordinary until you focus your attention on the description given. It reads as follows “Expect a seriously challenging single-player campaign, competitive multiplayer and a return of the cooperative ‘zombies’ mode.”
This could, of course, be nothing more than a typo, or simply misinformation. Given the vague, generic language used within the game description, it seems most likely that this is a standard Call of Duty game description that has been added. It provides not tangible definitive details on the single player Black Ops 4 campaign, but anything that casts aspersions or stimulates debate/rumours is enough to make us wonder. This information coupled with the cryptic message of “Forget what you know” at the end of the Black Ops 4 trailer creates a lingering question mark over the whole Black Ops 4 campaign speculation.
We all will be awaiting more information on the 17th of May where, hopefully, Treyarch will settle all debates, answer all questions and close all queries. Of course, there is always the chance they may just simply create more. In any case, we will have you covered here at GamingIntel.
