Despite the lack of players participating in single player campaigns the Call of Duty franchise has found itself the best selling game of the year since 2013.

There has also been no shortage is sales for downloadable content in recent years.

However, data collected by True Achievements reveals that on average, across all games in the series, only 22% of Call of Duty players played a single player campaign to completion.

The previous installment in the Black Ops series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, saw just under a 9% single player campaign completion.

Treyarch seems to have recognized that Call of Duty players rarely focus on the single player campaign.

Yet, some fans remain unhappy that Black Ops 4 will forego the single player campaign.

The development team opted for focusing their efforts in developing a more complex multiplayer experience for fans.

Though Black Ops 4 will lack some of the traditional components of past Call of Duty games, there will be several new features including a Battle Royale game mode to make up for it.
