Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has done more than its fair share to get players hyped for its full release. Now that the game has officially come out, there are a few features that gamers are hoping to see when they start the game up for the first time. One of the most beloved features of the previous titles is the Zombies Mode, which pits you and your friends up against an increasingly difficult horde of the undead as you fight for your survival.

While this may be one of the fan-favorite modes, the developers over at Infinity Ward have been strangely quiet about the addition of this mode, and haven’t done much to confirm if it will be available in the initial release, or if it will be released later as a form of DLC. Let’s dive right in and find out if you’ll be able to jump into this classic game type, or if you’re going to need to wait a while before you can get into the action with Zombies in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. 

Will Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Have a Zombies Mode?

As of the time of writing, there are no confirmed plans of the experience having any sort of Zombies mode. This makes sense because the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 didn’t feature any specific Zombies mode. However, thankfully there will be alternatives for you in the experience. The developers have noted that some classic modes and a version of Spec Ops are on the cards for players which is an exciting prospect to think about.

While this may be a bit of a shame, there are plenty of other options to keep yourself preoccupied with. As with the previously mentioned Spec Ops mode, the newest iteration of Warzone will be making its way to the game very shortly, alongside the new DMZ mode. With all of these additions, it’ll be hard to know if Zombies has a chance of coming to this entry.

However, for fans who thoroughly enjoy zombies, there is a high likelihood that the mode will return for a future title in the series because of how large the Zombies Call of Duty community is. From hunting Easter Eggs to always jumping into the modes to get higher and higher on the leaderboards for surviving against the hordes. If you are still hoping for some Zombie content alongside Modern Warfare 2, you could revisit Call of Duty: Vanguard if you’re looking for more Zombies content.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
