A new job listing for Infinity Ward has caught the eyes of the Call of Duty community as it seems to hint towards the return of a campaign mode for the 2019 CoD release.
While Call of Duty players around the world can’t wait to get their hands on Black Ops 4 with its revamped movement, health, classes, and Blackout Battle Royale mode, others are still lamenting the fact that it won’t feature a campaign.
With such a large online and multiplayer community, it is often easy to forget that millions of Call of Duty players around the world still buy each game for nothing more than the offline campaign experience.
With that in mind, Treyarch’s decision to do away with it seems to be a big risk. A risk that Infinity Ward may not want to repeat for their next game, it seems.
Infinity Ward will be making the Call of Duty game that is released after Black Ops 4 and there are already rumors circulating about it being a return to the popular Modern Warfare series for MW4.
Now a new job listing for a “Narrative Scripter” with a “strong interest in First Person Shooter (FPS) Games and a “broad understanding of both multiplayer and single player game design” has appeared on LinkedIn:
The listing hints heavily towards the next Infinity Ward title having a campaign mode but it certainly does not confirm it.
With many game developers beginning to include a narrative with their multiplayer experiences, and Call of Duty having a history of co-op game modes, the return of single player is still just speculation.
Infinity Ward has not yet commented on the rumors about the return of campaign mode.
