Many fans of the popular first-person shooter Call of Duty series assumed, with the new Blackout mode taking off, that Activision would continue the online only approach to future releases in the series. However, in Activision's earnings report, new details have surfaced regarding the 2019 installment of the ongoing franchise. President of Activision, Rob Kostich, confirmed that the next in line for Call of Duty titles plans to include the single-player campaign option.
But that's not all that is looking to be included in the next Call of Duty iteration. A "huge and expansive" multiplayer mode, traditional online matches and a co-op mode will also be seeing their way into the next Call of Duty title, which is presumably being developed by Infinity Ward. If so, many fans are throwing rumors around claiming the next installment could either be Modern Warfare 4 or Ghosts 2 since both were developed by the same studio, Infinty Ward.
"It’s going to feature an entirely new campaign, a huge and expansive multiplayer world, and of course some fun co-op gameplay. But from day 1, what gets me really excited, is every time we’ve shown this title internally, it just creates a ton of buzz. Now I wish I could tell you a lot more right now but unfortunately you’re gonna have to wait, but I think it’s going to be really worth it. We can’t wait to share with the world." – President of Activision, Rob Kostich
There hasn't been much more news regarding the upcoming Call of Duty title, but we're hoping to hear more about the 2019 shooter soon. And with the success of Blackout and Black Ops 4, should we expect future support for the ongoing battle royale mode, especially since it's closest BR competitors are continusously offering new improvements and updates.
