Activision: 2019’s Call of Duty will have a campaign

Activision revealed details about this year’s installment of the Call of Duty franchise during its quarterly earnings call Tuesday, including that it will feature “an entirely new campaign.” This is a departure from Black Ops 4, which featured no campaign, instead focusing on its multiplayer components.

Speaking during the Q&A portion of the call, Rob Kostich, the newly-named President of Activision, discussed 2019’s Call of Duty game, saying that it will include “an entirely new campaign, a huge and expansive multiplayer world and some fun co-op gameplay.” This is the first time Activision has publicly confirmed the return of a campaign to Call of Duty since 2017’s Call of Duty WW2.

Dennis Durkin, Activision’s CFO, did say, however that the company doesn’t anticipate sales of the 2019 Call of Duty being as strong as 2018’s Black Ops 4. “Call of Duty units are down year-over-year in our outlook,” Durkin stated when discussing 2019 projections.

During the same call, Activision Blizzard announced it was cutting 8 percent of its staff across the company and its studios, and that shifted focus would allow it to focus on “owned franchises” such as Call of Duty.

its about damn time they brought campaigns back


Redacted Glad to see the campaign come back this year. I'm hoping for a ghost 2 tbh loved the story for that

Pretty sure I saw a tweet with Charlie Intel a few weeks back confirming that it won't be Ghosts 2

I'm a little confused as to why you attached a video of Modern Warfare 3 which has been out for years.
Other than that, personally, I want the Call of Duty franchise to end. I think it was great back in the day from Call of Duty: Finest hour up to Modern Warfare 2/WW2 (for the most part). I enjoyed CoD before it was filled with microtransactions and it was just all about leveling up and having fun with your friends. I feel like CoD has been on a downward spiral for quite some time now and they just don't know when to stop


I'm glad they are coming back with campaign because that was always one of my favorite parts of the cod series and them achievements. Just hoping them don't trash the game with micro transactions, supply drops, OP perks, just stop flooding the game with too much unnecessary shit. Make it simple if people suck people suck who cares about leveling the playing field for trash players. Just give me a mw2 or mw3 and I will be happy oh without everyone running sitrep and recon (mw3). I would actually love to enjoy one more good cod before my gaming days dwindle down. You know what majority of the people wants stop making it all about money.


Am I the only one who doesn't want an MW4 (kinda)? I loved CoD4, MW2 and MW3 (Campaign) and think that the story was wrapped up pretty well, seeing Price sitting at the end with Yuri. What else could they do to add to the story? I feel like anything after this would ruin the story that we got to play from start to finish. I don't want to see the story continue with Price and Yuri basically restarting the cycle, however, I think that the story should be about Price when he was a Lieutenant with Captain McMillan.


Call of Duty is well and truly dead. It's nothing compared to what it used to be back in the day and it's never going to get back there. Negative post but very true.


in all honesty, im looking forwards to this


This is great news, hopefully it is modern warfare.


I miss the times when microtransactions was just for DLC Maps and not crates and skins that you cant get without using money.
