While it appears very likely that Activision and Treyarch will eschew a traditional single-player campaign for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to focus more on multiplayer and Zombies, Battlefield publisher Electronic Arts has confirmed that the next installment in the shooter series, will indeed feature a single-player campaign.
In the latest earnings call, EA confirmed that there will indeed be a single-player campaign heading to the game along with multiplayer. During a recent investors call, Wilson also suggested that players can expect "unique" battles in the next shooter from DICE, although he didn't explain whether or not that related to the recent Battle Royale rumours.
The rest of EA's pitch to investors was also full of interesting details, including a combined sales figure for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 of 103 million at the end of a year ago.
However, they remained tight lipped about the next Battlefield game beyond confirming the release window of Q3 2019 which is the three-month period that ends December 31.
Per the figures, 18 million players engaged in "competitive gaming" across Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and Madden NFL 18, up more than 75% year-over-year (yoy).
Battlefield has more than 54 million players life to date across current generation consoles and PC.
"With our next Battlefield game, the team at DICE is bringing the intensity of combat to life in new and unexpected ways", he said. We also want to add more social layers into the platform and more tools, and you'll continue to see that evolution going on as well through the Origin platform.
EA also predicted that the Nintendo Switch would be on 30 million sales by the end of this year, which will be almost twice it's current figure of around 17 million.
Almost 18 million players engaged in competitive gaming across Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 and Madden NFL 18, up 75 percent year-over-year. When mobile is factored in, $1.048 million was earned for the quarter.
In all, digital net revenue for Q4 was $1.1 billion, and packaged goods were $480 million, for a total of $1.6 billion in net revenue.
