Single-player Progression Will Not Carry Over on Cross-Gen Upgrades

Those upgrading from current-gen to next-gen versions of cross-generational games will not be able to transfer their single-player progress, according to a report by Kotaku.
Publishers and platform holders alike are attempting to make the transition as easy as possible, by offering schemes that allow users to trade in their current gen games for the next-gen version at a nominal fee, while promising that all multiplayer progression and stats are also carried over on titles including Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Black Flag.
Publishers have confirmed, however, that single-player progress will not be carried over in Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. And while Ubisoft was not able to clarify if the same is true for Watch Dogs, it’s looking more than likely.
Of course, this isn’t a major problem - especially with the relatively short campaigns usually featured in Battlefield and Call of Duty Games - but it’s notable nevertheless.
