A new job listing on the Infinity Ward website implies 2019’s Call of Duty will have a single-player campaign.
Following news that Black Ops 4 will be abandoning single-player support, anxieties were raised regarding the place of solo content in Call of Duty‘s future. The listing on Infinity Ward’s page, however, is for a Narrative Scripter, which strongly implies there will be some form of campaign content. The overview of the job reads as follows:
“Come work with the game industry’s brightest on a new, exciting, unannounced title for multiple next gen platforms. In this hands-on role, you’ll collaborate with scripters, sound designers, writers, and directors to implement voice-over performances in-game across a wide variety of player experiences – from combat to set-pieces … [must have] a strong desire to bring life to game characters through naturalistic and cinematic implementation of vocal performance.”
Treyarch, the second primary developer for the franchise, recently suggested that Black Ops 4 will be the outlier in omitting single-player content. Infinity Ward has a strong reputation for providing decent Call of Duty campaigns, so single-players should be happy for the studio’s return to the format.
