Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may have given the boot to the traditional single-player campaign, but that doesn't mean we won't see one later down the line.
Speaking with the Daily Star, Treyarch's Yale Miller said that if players are hungry for more popcorn-munching blockbuster fun -- cause let's face it, that's what the campaigns basically are -- then there's every chance we'll see them appear in a future Call of Duty game.
'[The single player mode] is only missing at this moment in time,' said Miller. 'I really think with every game we make, we finish that title and then we ask, 'What is it fans are gonna love the most?' If that’s another traditional campaign, then we’ll make another traditional campaign.'
It's probably easy to jump the gun with this and assume he's talking about possible campaign DLC for Black Ops 4. And, while this can't be ruled out entirely, it's more likely Miller's referring to new games in the series as a whole.
New games as in the rumoured Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 from Infinity Ward, perhaps? We hope so.
'I love narrative games, there’s a place for narrative games, but for us and what we wanted to do, it was the right decision,' concluded Miller.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 12, and in case you haven't clocked on by now, has no campaign. It does, however, feature a battle royale mode and brings back the ubiquitious Zombies affair.
