Call of Duty


 

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has seen some pretty off-the-wall rumors lately, all of which point to a game that is facing problems in development. There have been reports that developer Treyarch is ditching a traditional single-player campaign to focus resources on a battle royale mode, while other rumors place the multiplayer in development hell after playtesters gave negative feedback about features that made the game resemble hero-based shooters like Overwatch.

Well, it turns out that only some or none of those leaks are true, at least according to a professional Call of Duty player.

Justin Fargo-Palmer, a.k.a. SiLLY, who plays Call of Duty: WWII professionally for esports organization Evil Geniuses, recently posted a tweet that may relieve some die-hard Black Ops fans:

Fargo-Palmer didn’t source this information or even state which “leaked bo4 stuff” he’s responding to, but we’re assuming it’s the previously stated rumors about the game’s multiplayer, since that is what Fargo-Palmer, as a pro Call of Duty player, is most likely interested in.

As far as Fargo-Palmer’s source, it’s possible that professional players have contact with the publishers and developers of the games they play, though Black Ops 4 is being developed by Treyarch, whereas Call of Duty: WWII, the game that Fargo-Palmer plays professionally, was developed by Sledgehammer Games.

One multiplayer feature that seems likely to make a comeback is the Pick Ten create-a-class system, which Treyarch recently teased in an official tweet. That alone should be enough to assuage some fans’ fears about the direction in which Treyarch plans to take Black Ops 4.

We’ll find out more on May 17th when publisher Activision and Treyarch plan on hosting a reveal event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is slated to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12th.
