Singleplayer Is Coming Back to Call of Duty
An upcoming Call of Duty game that’s scheduled to launch sometime this fall will have a singleplayer campaign, Activision president Rob Kostich revealed during a Tuesday earnings call.
Kostich reportedly said during the call that 2019’s Call of Duty game will have “an entirely new campaign, a huge and expansive multiplayer world, and some fun co-op gameplay.”
Activision Blizzard’s CEO Robert Kotick reportedly added that the company was “excited about the fall release” of the upcoming game.
Last year’s entry in the long-running series, Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 4, was the first mainline entry to not feature a singleplayer campaign. Treyarch’s co-studio head cited audiences being more interested in multiplayer content than singleplayer content as a reason for the change.
Despite not having a singleplayer campaign, Black Ops 4 reviewed well and was one of the most commercially successful entries in the series. Our review described the lack of a campaign as “a bit of a downer” but praised the game’s multiplayer content.
