With Black Ops 4 finally revealed we now have confirmation that the game won’t have a single player campaign, and it looks like that was the plan all along Speaking with Eurogamer, Treyarch co-studio head Dan Bunting said it wasn't so much that a campaign was being built and ultimately tossed aside, but more that it was never part of the plan. "Going back to the very beginning of Black Ops 4 development, we never had set out to make a traditional campaign," Bunting said. From the start, the Black Ops IIII set out to make something different that was tailored to the response players had to Black Ops III. Of course, this meant leaning more into the multiplayer offerings, but also experiment with the overall structure of the game. "Throughout the course of development we tried a lot of ideas, a lot of things that challenged convention, that might be a different kind of twist on how we might think of a Call of Duty game in the past, or a Black Ops game in the past," Bunting said. "As we did that, some things make it, some things don't." Bunting is aware that many people play Call of Duty games for their campaigns, and acknowledges the fears. "I think change is always going to be hard for people," he told Eurogamer. There are solo missions players can undertake to learn more about the backstory of the individual character classes, which also act as an introduction to the game itself. How this does on the sales charts renames to be seen, but it’s fair to say that there’s something for everyone with Black Ops 4. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
