For the first time in the history of the famous series, a new part of Call of Duty will be released without a story campaign. As several sources reported at once, Black Ops 4 developers focused on multiplayer and zombie mode.
Forget everything you knew
So the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 slogan sounds, and it seems that this is not only a reference to the topic of mind control. According to Polygon, the developer Treyarch simply does not have time to make a single mode in the set time. If you believe Youguber TheGamingRevolution, the main idea was that the player had to rewrite history, moving to the past. Allegedly the team worked on the plot campaign for more than two years, but now these plans had to be abandoned. One of the reasons can be a severely curtailed budget.
It seems that the interesting single campaigns in Call of Duty came to an end. So a gift to the 15th anniversary of the franchise. According to most Activision, Black Ops 4 "will change the idea of the series." It's unclear just in good or bad.
In addition to the cooperative and zombies in Black Ops 4 decided to add a mode of "royal battle" in the style of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds . This was not the case in large-budget projects. Apparently, Activision does not give rest to the popularity of the survival shooter.
Details of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be announced at the event on May 17. The game will be released on October 12, 2018 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
