Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Will Have Battle Royale Mode

Multiple sources have surfaced this week claiming the latest COD game won't include the traditional single-player campaign found in past installments, instead featuring a battle royale mode of its own.

A spokesperson for Activision has responded to the rumor by saying "We don't comment on rumor and speculation".

But Polygon's source, "described an emphasis on cooperative modes as a potential stand-in for the typical single-player campaign experience".

The inclusion of a battle royale mode shouldn't come as a surprise as it's a shooter trend that's now taking the world by storm. It could just tie into the series' love of weird brainwashing narratives, but it's just as likely a message to players who have always been clamoring for a multiplayer-only Call of Duty experience.

The game has been given a release date of October 12 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

According to the rumor, Raven Software who have previously worked on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remaster are developing this new Battle Royale Mode.

The sides went in at the break with the score at 1-1, but Mourinho wasn't happy. "They did and they went on to win". To lose one FA Cup semi-final can be unfortunate - to lose eight in succession shows a pattern is emerging.

This year's Call of Duty title will be developed by Treyarch, one of the three studios that share responsibility for the production of the series.

That has changed over time and the "Call of Duty" franchise is now mostly known for its online multiplayer modes.

Sources say that Treyarch is hoping Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Battle Royale mode will have 100 players, although it sounds like the mode will not be available to play at launch.

The success of PUBG has sent virtually every publisher sprinting to build new games or convert old ones with new combat modes.

Call of Duty was created by developer Infinity Ward in 2003.

The news might be a disappointment to a lot of "Call of Duty" fans. The franchise's esports division, Call of Duty World League, began in early 2016, featuring more than $4 million in prize money for the season. For now, we will have to wait until May 17th where Activision is revealing Black Ops 4 at a community event. Reports indicate that both Activision and developer Treyarch are looking to explore multiplayer and zombie elements.
