The Call of Duty 2019 game will feature a campaign as it has been established by Activision. The latest quarterly earnings call of Activision Blizzard provided this news. During this event, the publisher confirmed that about 8% of its employees were sacked by it.
Rob Kostich, the new Activision president, gave away some features that the Call of Duty of 2019 will include, that being an expensive and huge multiplayer world, an entirely new campaign, and some fun co-op gameplay.
Dennis Durkin, the returning CEO, considers that this game would be a step forward for the series, but it does not ignore the most important history of the franchise so the old and the new will be combined.
Call of Duty Black Ops 4 from 2018 was developed by Treyarch, but no traditional single-player campaign was featured last year. The original developer of Call of Duty will offer the installment of 2019, it being Infinity Ward. This studio has also been behind Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty and Call of Duty 2, the Modern Warfare trilogy, and Ghosts.
Not everything is good news
In 2018, Activision reported that the number-one selling console franchise worldwide was Call of Duty, but despite that lower Q4 sales than Black Ops 4 are anticipated by the company, according to Durkin who also said that Call of Duty units are down year-over-year in their outlook.
Around 800 people are estimated to be the layoffs at Activision Blizzard, and despite the financial results of the company last year, it was confirmed by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick that it would happen as they were the best in their history. In the non-game development areas of the business, according to Activision, the layoffs are occurring too.
