Activision has taken down images claiming Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is getting a zombies mode.
Zombies have long been an iconic part of the Call Of Duty series but not necessarily the Modern Warfare sub-series. For the most part Zombies mode has been relegated to the Treyarch developed titles, such as the Black Ops sub-series, although they have appeared in others as well.
Treyarch made a Zombies mode for Sledgehammer Games’ Call Of Duty: Vanguard, for example, and Infinity Ward had them in Infinite Warfare. However, they’ve never appeared in any Modern Warfare title.
This was apparently to keep the Modern Warfare games feeling more realistic (that was the case for the 2019 game at least), but it’s looking like that won’t be the case for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Nothing’s been confirmed by Activision or developer Infinity Ward yet but, over the weekend, someone was able to find evidence of a Zombies mode in the game’s files, via datamining.
It’s not clear exactly how they found this evidence, but it’s most likely thanks to Modern Warfare 2’s campaign mode, since it’s available in early access for those who pre-ordered the game.
Twitter user CODSploitzImgz shared a few images without context, and they have since been deleted due to a ‘report from the copyright holder.’ As is always the case with these situations, Activision’s efforts to contain the leak have only acted to confirm it’s real.
