No campaign co-op in Black Ops

Rumors always rise as to whether any new Call of Duty game will have co-op when it’s time to hit that campaign. But once again we’re left without that option as Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia explained to MTV that Call of Duty: Black Ops will in fact not be co-op friendly.

“Single-player is the epic, cinematic, seat-of-your-pants thrill ride that you star in,” he says, adding that the well-known multiplayer formula will be there and addictive as ever.

When asked about what would in fact be co-op in the game, Lamia said; “…and then co-op is for when you want to have a blast with your friends, just sitting on the couch and having an awesome co-op experience. We’re crafting unique co-op modes around that experience, but it is different than what people think.”

Modern Warfare 2 had Spec Ops, so you would think it would be something similar, but not so. “…it is different than Spec Ops,” Lamia says, without hinting at anything else. But, he said “unique,” and we like unique, don’t we? And “variety,” too.
