If you hate the direction taken by the campaign-less Black Ops 4, you’ll be happy to learn that it seems likely that a CoD 2019 campaign is in the works. With the backlash caused by Black Ops 4‘s no single-player approach, I suppose it’s good that Call of Duty 2019 looks like it will have a story mode.

Activision wants you to be talking about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 right now. Indeed, many people are, especially as its newly revealed multiplayer-focused experience is less than five months away from release.

Titanfall 2 developer Respawn was founded by two former Infinity Ward employees, and now it seems Respawn team members have headed back to Infinity Ward. An exhaustively-sourced Reddit post lists eight developers who have recently left Respawn and, in some cases, returned to Infinity Ward.
