Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Was Originally Supposed to Have a 2v2 Co-Op Campaign
Unlike previous Call of Duty titles, Black Ops 4 does not have a single player campaign. Instead, Treyarch has elected to focus solely on the game’s traditional multiplayer, Zombies, and their new Battle Royale mode: Blackout. It turns out however that the company did once think about having not only a campaign but one that supported co-op.
A recent Reddit post by an alleged Treyarch employee revealed a variety of secrets and solutions to some of the mysteries surrounding the game’s Zombies mode. While a majority of the post pertaining to Zombies, there was a small bit of information that revealed some interesting details about the potential co-op modes in the works.
According to the post, the campaign was planned to release with the game up through the middle of 2017. In order to channel more resources into the game’s multiplayer, the campaign was sadly scrapped. The former employee didn’t reveal too many details, only divulging that there was plans for a 2v2 co-op campaign, pitting teams against each other during certain portions of the mod, and having them work together during other parts. The leak also mentioned that there were a total of 5 campaign missions being worked on before the feature was scrapped.
It’s worth noting that the alleged former employee who made the post mentions having been one of the former QA testers and was fired from his job, though several admins have validated his claims. Whether this is enough to validate the rest of the post is difficult to say. As with every leak that arrives these days, be sure to take any information discovered with a grain of salt.
The idea of playing with or against teams for a campaign does sound pretty intriguing and quite unique. It’s too bad Treyarch decided to forgo following through with the concept. The latest in the franchise is currently available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
