Second, Activision is taking a second bit of my advice and capitalizing on the success of games like Fortnite and Player Unknown's Battlegrounds: Black Ops 4 will include a "Battle Royale" mode called Blackout.
Battle royale games have revolutionised the first-person shooter genre over the last few years, and feature a large amount of players - normally 100 - entering into combat that is won when just one victor, or winning team, is left alive.
Treyarch's David Vonderhaar explained the Black Out map for Black Ops 4 will be 1,5000 times bigger than Nuketown, one of the franchise's smallest and most popular maps. The solo missions and multiplayer alike, lore-wise, take place between the events of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is due to be released on October 14 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. An introductory trailer gave an overview of how pieces of the Black Ops experience are being borrowed and fitted onto a whole new way to play.
That means other Call of Duty developers Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward may be planning a single-player campaign for their next releases (and it's Infinity Ward's turn next year).
What would Black Ops 4 do to follow up?

"How we look at it is, we are crafting our own experience with Black Ops 4", producer Miles Leslie said.
"How do we make Black Ops 4 deeper and more tactical than it's ever been before?" We got cinematic glimpses of what the three zombie maps will bring: One was called "IX", which appears set in an Ancient Rome-like era of gladiators and coliseums; another is "Voyage of Despair", which looks like it'll be Zombies on the Titanic; and then there's "Blood of the Dead", which carries a prison theme. Today we are going to cover everything there is to know about the new game and what type of cool and innovative features fans should get ready for. "They couldn't, for example, make Blackout. because that's just quintessentially Black Ops, you know?"
As we saw in the game's "multiplayer reveal" trailer, there are health bars (!) and health regeneration won't be automatic. Enter the announcement of Blackout, the game's new battle royale, last-man-standing mode. Play as fan favorite characters and battle through iconic settings from the Black Ops universe.
Revealed on the livestream earlier today, the latest Call of Duty will not be joining its cohort on Steam, rather sticking to Battle.net for now.
