As far back as Call of Duty: World at War, the various Zombies modes have been some of the most popular aspects of the series’s multiplayer scene. You don’t even need to put a fancy subtitle on it, just call it “Zombies,” and people will instantly know what you’re talking about. The big question, though, is whether Zombies will make a comeback in Modern Warfare 2. So, will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 include a Zombies mode?
Will Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Include a Zombies mode?
Unfortunately, the answer to that is no. Infinity Ward actually confirmed earlier this year that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will not feature a Zombies mode, nor will it feature any modes analogous to it like a generic horde mode.
Infinity Ward is looking to try some new stuff with Modern Warfare 2, such as the new DMZ mode. This mode drops numerous players into a large map and pits them against each other in a long-term, Escape from Tarkov-style skirmish. Adding that to the regular game modes and campaign was probably the main priority of development, leaving little time for a half-baked horde mode.
On the bright side, Gunfight is slated to make a comeback. Two teams of two players seek to take each other down in just 40 seconds, switching into Capture the Flag in overtime. It may not be co-op survival, but that should get you all the co-op fun with your friends you’re looking for. And who knows, we may see a late-stage addition of a Zombies mode after the game’s had some time to breathe.
