Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was met with mixed reactions from the community, with its Multiplayer being especially controversial. Some criticized it for being too radical of a departure from the franchise's roots.
In contrast, others considered it a step in the right direction. Regardless, Black Ops 4 was extremely polarizing to the wider gaming community, no thanks to the game's frustrating balance and egregious post-launch microtransactions.
Underneath the technical issues and conflicting design decisions, a different vision for Black Ops 4's Multiplayer was intended.
Initial plans included each Specialist having abilities and ultimates akin to Overwatch, an all-new 'Escalation' system, the return of War from Call of Duty: WW2, and so much more.
The design team was set on a singular goal from Day 1: creating an ambitious team-focused shooter that would challenge the franchise's winning formula.
