Why is Activision selling physical copies of Call of Duty nowadays?
So I got myself Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War yesterday. I got the game as a physical Version, because my Internet connection in my flat right now is not the best. My thought was ‘Hey, install the game, play the campaign and while you do so, you can download the patch (because it takes literally 5-6 hours to do so).
So after installing the game on my PS4, I wanted to start the campaign...but the only option that was available was offline games with bots..first bummer. Told myself ok...then let’s download the Patch first if it contains the story...
After 5 hours of downloading and installing the patch, I wanted to play the campaign, only to find out, the campaign is still not installed. If I want to play the campaign, I have to download 3 separate chapters of the campaign...at this point I was really mad. I could play online finally yes..but still.
Why are you selling a game with a campaign, if the campaign is optional, and split into multiple parts?!?
I get that there are discussions that all digital consoles are not possible with the new generation, because the Internet connections are not good enough everywhere (my example).
But why would you do such a thing for this money? I mean do you want me to play your game or want me to wait for days?
I just don’t get the thought behind it? Why does Activision do a campaign anyways, if they want to focus only on the Multiplayer, as it feels like right now?

Update 1.29 won’t let me play MP, CO-OP, nor Campaign.
I have the disc version on PS4 and all game files installed (MW: DP1&2, MP1-3, SOP1&2, and survival). When I try to play anything other than warzone (the multiplayer, co-op, and campaign modes I payed for on disc) it says I’m missing unspecified data packs. I’ve already tried renewing my game license, restarted the game, restarted my system, tried starting the game offline, and finally w/o internet connection. I’m still getting the same problem and am currently downloading the Black Ops MP pack (30 hour download) in hopes that will fix something.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Edit: added that I use PS4
