Don’t worry folks, your Black Ops 2 Zombies aren’t at risk. Black Ops 2 will have a zombie mode (several, in fact). However, the future of the extremely popular game mode may be a bit up in the air after that. When asked, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia was not opposed to the idea, saying “Whether it becomes a spin-off title or not, we can definitely expect more zombies”.
Zombies started as a simple mini-game in Treyarch’s 2008 Call of Duty title, World at War. They instantly became a huge hit, and they have been expanding further and further on their own since then. Almost ten months after the release of Black Ops, the game got the first zombie-exclusive DLC we had seen so far. From there, the expansion into possibly becoming a separate game has sky-rocketed, with the zombie mode in Black Ops 2 reportedly being an entirely separately developed mode with multiple game types, 8-player co-op, and competitive multiplayer.
It would seem that the writing is on the wall for zombies to break off into their own separate standalone title, similar to the way DOTA has from Starcraft. If Zombies were a completely separate game instead of just a mode within another Call of Duty game, would you buy it?
