I won't be buying it this year then, campaign is the only reason I buy CoD games.

The sp is typically the least popular mode behind mp and Zombies. I personally love sp but i can understand replacing it with Battle Royale aka Blackout. They better have a great Zombies and Battle Royale mode if they are minimizing the sp. I'm actually excited to see BO4 at Sony's E3 this year because i'm curious to see how Blackout looks.

I feel sorry for some clueless gamer that pays for this game just to find out there is no SP on the game.

I've said this to all of your comments, but:

I'm not going to pay $60 for half a game. Having more multiplayer content doesn't excuse Activision screwing over the players who like the Single-Player Story Mode.

It's a shame, because CoD used to have a pretty decent story mode...

Rachel_Alucard402d ago

Least popular could just translate to only right behind multiplayer for all anyone can say. That report that leaked no campaign also mentioned it was axed because of Acti being resilient to the idea of a time travel themed campaign and time constraints. Had less to do with interest and I imagine they'll go back to a campaign mode next year and the year after that.

You can get a rough idea by looking at trophies, almost nobody plays campaign.

MP-only games and GaaS are okay for you now? When did this happen?

UnHoly_One402d ago (Edited 402d ago )


I despise the "half a game" argument.

If you don’t like multiplayer only titles that is fine, but please come up with a better way of expressing that, because the “half a game” argument is blatantly incorrect. If you mean you won’t buy a multiplayer only title, then just say that.

By that same "half a game" metric, you wouldn’t buy God of War, or Witcher 3, or any other game that is single player only.

Sorry but that is just a pet peeve of mine. Say what you really mean instead of some silly little catchphrase that is factually incorrect.

Brad, I'm not.. you should always do at least a lillllllll bit of research on stuff before you buy.

They should add BOps or WAW remaster to the deluxe edition...

TheCommentator402d ago

Or CoD2, since it was only a campaign.

I'll be getting it day 1. Liked the release trailer. Zombies is a bit different too. Idk if the beta sucks then I'll cancel

EmperorDalek402d ago

You must have been disappointed with literally every entry this generation, then... It makes no sense to buy them just for the campaign, when there are far better single player offerings elsewhere.

Exactly. Great way to lose a lot of your fan-base.

Antnee534403d ago

So i do not like battle royale games at all, but i do love battlefield and with the vehicles being added in this gives me more of a battlefield vibe then like pubg. Still have to see gameplay to determine if i want this though.

BiggerBoss402d ago

Wouldn't the new Battlefield game (which also is rumored to have a BR mode) be more up your alley then?

Antnee534402d ago

It will be as well yes, but i do like the blac ops cods. Black ops 3 imo was the best cod for a very long time and nothing has come close.

InKnight7s402d ago

Battle Royale? you know that Battlfield is massive sized map with 60+ players each game right? This isn't any new thing for BF fans its more like an update.

Kerplunk80402d ago

I think blops 2 was really good as well

-Foxtrot403d ago (Edited 403d ago )

Buy this guys and you’ll just set a bad example other companies will follow. When COD multiplayer first came out everyone followed their crappy over the top gimmicky gameplay on what you unlocked not your skill.

Other developers will follow if this does well.

BlackIceJoe402d ago

Very well said and I couldn't have said it better myself. Games like this aren't good for the industry and only lead to less creative ideas for other games.

Noskypeno402d ago (Edited 402d ago )

Its why i dont like investors taking over companies. I admit i dont know a lot about business but i hate when other people step in and say stuff like "well only a tiny percentage play this mode so if you dont get rid of it we wil stop funding you" even tho it still sells more than enough. They couldve called it COD blackout or something and it would still get fans annoyed but less annoyed than knowing its called blackops and has nothing to do with the storyline.

AAAANNNNNNDDDD - no one cares.
