Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Won’t Have A Zombies Mode

No guttural undead screams this time around.

Modern Warfare

It has been confirmed that the reboot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not have a Zombies mode, unlike pretty much every other Call of Duty game for the past couple of years. This is one of a number of ways the recently revealed Modern Warfare will be shaking up the established CoD formula, with no Season Pass and cross-play between PC and consoles.

The lack of zombies themselves was confirmed in an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle conducted with campaign gameplay director Jacob Minkoff. In the interview, Minkoff states that the reason Modern Warfare doesn’t have zombies is because they wanted to create a more realistic game. Having zombies running around seems counter intuitive to that.

“We’re trying to create an authentic, realistic feeling world. We don’t have the flexibility to do something like put zombies in the game. That would compromise the feeling of playing in a world that feels realistic and authentic and relative to today’s conflicts and things we face.”

Instead, Infinity Ward are promising a whole new co-operative experience, with more details about that forthcoming. Minkoff touches upon said experience in his interview, stating that: “We’re not ready to talk about cooperative play yet, but what I will tell you is that the single-player storyline goes directly into the co-op storyline. No stop. The events just continue. So those elements—gameplay, progression, story—they just continue throughout everything that we have on the disc or digital download.”

The note that everything continues whether its on the disc or digital download kind of suggests that this co-op experience will be updated as the game goes on, similar to the new maps that the multiplayer and Zombies modes are. It sounds interesting either way, and we’re excited to see more when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 25th.
