According to the rumors of recent months, the Battle Royale mode of Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will come in a standalone version on Nintendo Switch. So many people were waiting for the confirmation of this edition during the reveal event of yesterday, but it did not happen.
To clarify the issue, in the course of an interview the editors of Twinfinite asked to Yale Miller and Matt Scronce, senior producer and gameplay designer at Treyarch, about the release on Black Ops 4 on Nintendo Switch. To the question “Are there any plans to bring any aspect of Black Ops 4 to Nintendo Switch?”, the two developers responded with a straight-forward answer “No there is not”. It seems, therefore, that the title will not arrive on the console of the Big N in any form.
In other news, we remind you that, for the first time in the history of the series, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will not have a traditional single-player campaign, but will offer only the possibility to play some missions as Specialists: the team wanted to focus on multiplayer, on Zombie mode (which will boast 3 campaigns titled IX, Voyage of Despair and Zombies Blood of the Dead) and on the Battle Royale Mode “Blackout”.
If the company has worn a lot of old episodes on the previous Big N consoles, Black Ops 4 will be the second episode to be ignored on the hybrid console, and probably marks a willingness not to compromise on the technique, and/or the estimate of an unattractive market.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is expected to release on October 12 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
