If you hated the sensation of being turned into a pile of ashes by something that couldn't miss and couldn't be countered in Fortnite Battle Royale, then you're in luck. All things considered, it wouldn't be a huge stretch to see a battle royale mode implemented into Battlefield.

According to Polygon, the next Call of Duty (Black Ops 4) is ditching campaign mode. Both PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite Battle Royale continue to be huge successes, a selection of smaller games from independent developers continue to be released month to month, and now we're learning that major franchises including Call of Duty plan to enter the fray in 2018.

Whatever the specifics, DICE's approach to online shooters, with massive maps and huge player counts, would present a natural opportunity to build a battle royale.

What's less certain at this time is how DICE will get the mode to work.

Weapon swapping is also getting some tweaks based on player feedback.
