Black Ops: Declassified 'not about the campaign, it's multiplayer-focused', says dev

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declasified is heading to PS Vita, courtesy of Nihilistic, developer of Resistance: Burning Skies. The studio has stated that he game isn't about the big cinematic campaign, but more about mutliplayer focus.

Speaking on the Activision One of Swords blog, Nihilistic CEO Robert Huebner stated, "Declassified is not about the big campaign storyline and huge cinematics, it’s more focused on the multiplayer essence of Call of Duty and bringing that to a portable device as completely as possible, and in bringing short, objective-based missions and score-driven gameplay with lighter story elements to create what we call the Operations missions. Then adding in some bonus modes like Time Trials and Hostiles to make a product that delivers the core Call of Duty experience in a mobile package."

That's fine, but VG247 saw the game's multiplayer in action at gamescom this year and it didn't look all that inspiring. Check out what we thought below:

Black Ops: Declassified multiplayer – shooting blanks

Despite this, Huebner added that he doesn't want fans to perceive Declassified as a port of the original Black Ops, which is exactly what it felt like to us in the appraisal above.

Thoughts guys and girls?

Thanks Gamespot.
