Black Ops 4 Won't Have a Single-player Mode

In fact, Treyarch believes Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's cooperative modes would be a decent replacement.

Polygon has reported that sources have told them that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not have a traditional single player campaign mode, rather Treyarch is focusing on MP and Zombies for this year's game, set to launch on Friday, October 12. Instead, there will be a Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode.

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. Activision also said in March that it is "keenly aware" of the success that other companies have had with the battle royale genre, and suggested that it was getting ready to take its own shot at it.

Even so, it's unlikely that Facebook would actually end up having to pay billions of dollars in fines. In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said the company is "reviewing the ruling".

Multiplayer has always been the most important part of Call of Duty for many people, ever since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out and catapulted the series to become a multiplayer juggernaut along the lines of Halo and Battlefield. As a result, the team chose to shift focus toward the multiplayer and Zombies modes that have defined the subseries since it began in 2010. Activision refuses to comment on this latest development, but based on previous Call of Duty games, it doesn't seem all that unlikely.

If there is indeed no single-player for Black Ops IV, we are left to speculate on the exact reasoning.

Activision is expected to reveal the details on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at a reveal event on May 17.
