Co-op fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops will be sad to hear that the upcoming title will be lacking cooperative play for the campaign mode, revealed developer Treyarch.

In speaking to Gamertag Radio, COD: Black Ops Executive Producer Dan Suarez is quoted as saying that the popular co-op campaign that players enjoyed in Call of Duty: World At War won’t be returning this year,

“There’s no campaign co-op this year,” said executive producer Dan Suarez.

So that’s that. Instead, players will get to have fun with friends locally in split-screen multiplayer (though it’s limited to two-players) as well as split-screen combat training. Which is something.

However, this doesn’t mean we won’t be getting co-op for the campign, as Treyarch Community boss Josh Olin stated that the game’s full-fledged co-op mode has yet to be fully revealed. Either way it sounds like it will be a different mode than the campaign . . . but we may end up getting both in the end. Expect it as paid DLC I’m sure.
