Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 could feature Battle Royale mode

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 could feature Battle Royale mode

Rumors say we won't have to wait long until we will be able to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The development team puts emphasis on cooperative modes as a potential stand-in for the typical single-player campaign experience. According to Polygon, the 4th Black Ops installment is going to be ditching the single player campaign entirely. Should they reveal the inclusion of a battle royale mode, it will mark the first time that a major big-budget studio has tried to make a splash in the genre, and if it's successful, expect more companies to do the same.

As a result, the studio is now focused exclusively on expanding the game's multiplayer and zombies experiences, and we'll likely hear more about the details of all that during Black Ops 4's official reveal event on May 17, later next month.

Both Polygon and Kotaku published articles that claimed Activision won't be including a campaign mode to Black Ops 4. On the other hand, paid games like Call of Duty offer in-game purchases and DLC packs to earn extra revenue. The game is scheduled to launch on October 12.

While it makes sense from a business perspective, a battle royale mode doesn't seem like the best fit for the Call of Duty series. Polygon have reported that Blops 4 will not include a traditional single-player mode.

Obviously, Activision hasn't confirmed any of this yet, but the publisher plans to fully unveil Black Ops 4 on the 17th of May. Numerous job listings on Beenox's site states that the studio is "currently dedicated to the development of the Call of Duty franchise." .

And that something might be an entirely new game mode.

Call of Duty is unlikely to follow the same approach of having a single base game supported by a wealth of updates and loot boxes without releasing a new game a year later. When asked, Activision declined to comment on these reports.

"Black Ops" will soon be the longest running sub-franchise in the overall "Call of Duty" series when "Black Ops 4" is released on October 12 and it will surpass the "Modern Warfare" trilogy. However, nothing has been confirmed, and Activision has made a decision to keep the development under wraps until the official debut of the game on May 17.
