Zombies mode was first introduced to Call of Duty with 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War. Since then, the game mode has become a staple and can be found in nearly every recent entry from the franchise.
While no such mode has been announced for the new Call of Duty, a new data mine has hinted that zombie mode could be included in the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Data miner Codsploitzimgz first discovered the image seen above. References to round-based zombies and outbreak modes can be seen in the pictures. This could mean that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will feature the traditional zombie mode sometime during the game’s lifecycle.
While zombie mode was previously limited to Treyarch Call of Duty games, nearly every Call of Duty in the last 8 years has included the wave-based survival game mode. The only exception to this rule was 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, so it is surprising to see the mode’s potential inclusion in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare chose to skip zombies mode in favor of the Spec Ops co-op, survival mode. Additionally, Modern Warfare 2 seems to already have many offerings at launch, with modes like Warzone 2.0 and the returning Spec Ops. Therefore, including a potential zombie mode could be the icing on the cake for fans of the franchise.
At the moment, details on the matter are limited. It is unclear if zombies will be included in the game at launch. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the first Call of Duty to receive over a year of post-launch support, so it would not be too far-fetched to expect zombie content later. Fans can expect to learn more details in the coming days.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is shaping to be an exciting launch for the franchise. The game builds on the solid foundation of the previous Modern Warfare entry while introducing innovations to the franchise.
The game is set to release on October 27, 2022. Campaign early access is live, and fans can jump right into the single-player story mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
