Yesterday, several major gaming sites claimed that Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII will contain a battle royale mode, but no singleplayer campaign.
According to the rumors, the mode will not be available in time for the game's scheduled October 2018 release and may be released separately via a title update. While MOBA's outside of Overwatch have begun to dwindle in support, the direction going forward looks to be on the Battle Royale mode. It is not a surprise to see many developers chose to work on a battle royale project, to be honest. the genre is getting bigger and bigger every day. Grubb reached out to EA for any comments on this report but they declined. EA could cancel the prototype, it could hold it off for the launch of the next Battlefield or a Star Wars: Battlefront sequel, or it could spin it out into its own game.
