Either way, we'll find out the truth soon enough: The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 full reveal is set for May 17.

Earlier today, it was reported that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may not ship with a single-player campaign.

A Battle Royale Mode in Call of Duty doesn't seem like a far stretch. That being said, this report makes sense considering the popular rumor that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will feature a Battle Royale mode. Well, what we know is that these games always included a single-player, so it's hard to ignore that warning.

According to the sources cited in the report, developer Treyarch made it known the mode wouldn't be finished in time for the game's release date, which is expected in October or November.

The astronomical event is expected to produce as many as 20 shooting stars per hour - as long as the skies remain clear. The annual display is caused by the Earth passing through a cloud of debris from a comet called C/186 Thatcher.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may potentially include a "Battle Royale" mode developed by Raven Software according to sources at charlieINTEL. Since then, the campaigns of the games have been second fiddle to the cool multiplayer toys players could get their hands on.

If these rumors turn out to be true, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will be the first game in franchise history not have a proper campaign.

Polygon reached out to Activision to comment on the matter and they responded with "we don't comment on rumor and speculation".

Instead of a traditional campaign mode, the co-op mode could serve as a replacement option. "The source described an emphasis on cooperative modes as a potential stand-in for the typical single-player campaign experience", wrote Polygon's Chris Plante.
