Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Requires Persistent Connection

A listing of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Editions from Activision reveals the next installment in the military shooter series will require an internet connection for all game modes (thanks VGC). Word is:
To deliver the highest-quality visuals while also reducing the game’s overall storage space on your hard drive, Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 will use texture streaming across all game modes. This means you’ll need a continuous internet connection to play any game mode, including Campaign. If you’re on a console, Campaign can be played without a premium subscription service such as Game Pass Core or PlayStation Plus.

Normally I'd agree with everyone else about how shitty this is, but running through the CoD campaign should only take you like 20-25 minutes, so it doesn't seem like that big of a deal.

Texture stream to where, your RAM? The amount of RAM you'd need to run the game would be insane if this were actually true. Just more lies...

Just one more step towards making every game cloud and subscription based.

Given how often MWZ boots you from the game with zero record of however long you've played or what you've achieved, (beyond some weapon xp,) it stands to reason that being on the same engine, this is going to be just as frustrating, (if not more so, given how much more involved round-based EEs are.)

The BO engine fork was infinitely more sensible for zombies modes.

What a joke and a bold faced lie. The persistent connection is for big brother monitoring and copy protection for the pc version. There will be zero..ZERO texture streaming bullshit. Texture streaming is not a thing for action games. We use it on flight sims because the data storage would be immense and the images are licensed.

that said, I just assume CoD is all multiplayer now... it hasn't had a good campaign in years. We go to other games for that.

Oh yeah, that is definitely the reason. Yep.

Oh my, I can't wait - this will be glorious. Not the game of course, I don't give a rats ass about CoD anymore and especially not with *this*, but the drama in the making; it's like announcing that you are now going to drive against the wall.
