Call of Duty: Black Ops Will Not Have Campaign Co-op
Treyarch’s been saying a lot of things I like to hear of late.
However, in an recent interview with Gamertag Radio, Executive Producer Dan Suarez said something I didn’t like much at all. Simply put, there won’t be a co-op campaign in this installment of the long-running franchise.
Honestly, the co-op campaign was my favorite feature of Call of Duty: World at War, and I was really looking forward to sitting down on the couch with a buddy to play Black Ops.
There will be a split-screen combat training mode, as well as split-screen multiplayer, but it’s not the same thing. This is similar to what happened with the co-op in the Resistance series.
Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin has said that the actual co-op mode hasn’t been revealed yet (Thanks, VG247), but there’s no reason to expect that a co-op campaign will be announced now.
Maybe I’m the only one, but I can’t imagine that couch co-op is not popular enough to warrant inclusion in these games. Hopefully, we’ll see more games bring local co-op campaigns back to prominence.
You can look forward to some co-op multiplayer when Black Ops releases November 9 on Nintendo DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and XBox 360.
