Last year, Activision invited controversy by eschewing a single-player campaign in Call of Duty for the first time in the series’ history with Black Ops 4. While the game ended up both selling and reviewing extremely well in large part due to its battle royale Blackout mode, a number of fans held a hard line on the lack of single-player content. Today, Activision confirmed that this year’s game will remedy that.
During today’s earnings call, Activision president Rob Kostich revealed that they plan to bring back the single-player campaign in this year’s Call of Duty game, presumably developed by Infinity Ward. Kostich also mentioned that the game would still have the traditional multiplayer modes in addition to a “new” co-op mode.
Infinity Ward’s latest Call of Duty, Infinite Warfare, released in 2016, meaning that the studio is likely next in rotation to develop 2019’s game. No further details were discussed at this time.
