The upcoming Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward confirmed in an interview with PlayStationLifestyle that their game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not include a Zombies mode like the prior Call of Duty, being one of the few only times in the last many years where a Call of Duty game won’t have a Zombies mode.
“But for us, 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.”
Infinity Ward’s Campaign Director, Jacob Minkoff, said that the choice of not including a Zombies mode was just because they want the entire game to feel like one game, not three separate game modes, and you can’t have a new, fresh story and then have a Zombies co-op mode in the game as well.
Infinity Ward revealed yesterday that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s unified experience will let progression and many aspects be shared across the game’s campaign, multiplayer, and co-op mode.
Minkoff also revealed that the single-player story will merge with the co-op mode.
“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.”
There are not many details as to what the co-op mode will be. The game’s description was revealed and claimed the co-op mode would feature ‘elite operations’ for players to fight through.
