Treyarch has big plans for Call of Duty Zombies

According to Treyarch’s Associate Director Kevin Drew, the studio has "big plans for zombies and want to grow the team to realize them."


After last year's failed Zombies venture in Call of Duty: Vanguard from Treyarch, the studio is hungry to redeem itself.

Treyarch deserves a shot at a Zombies spin-off separate from Call of Duty. If it doesn't happen, we'd be happy if every Call of Duty going forward gets a Zombies mode.

Treyarch's Associate Director Kevin Drew confirmed on Twitter that the Call of Duty studio has "big plans for zombies", adding that Treyarch "want to grow the team to realize [its plans]."

The only question now is, when are we going to see the next Zombies game?

Treyarch surprised a lot of gamers when it confirmed that it would work with Sledgehammer Games on a Zombies mode for Call of Duty: Vanguard. Zombies mode is a Treyarch-exclusive feature, so fans expected a lot after finding out that they would get a Zombies mode for two straight years. Unfortunately, it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be.

The good news here is that Treyarch is already working on the next Call of Duty Zombies game.

Hot take: A Zombies mode add-on to Modern Warfare 2 might be too much, especially with Warzone 2 also coming out in 2023.

Of course, this is assuming that Treyarch's popular mode isn't going to become a separate franchise. Earlier this year, there were reports that Treyarch was working on a standalone Zombies game. This is neither a confirmation nor a denial.

However, if we believe the talk that Sledgehammer is the next Call of Duty studio, Treyarch could come out with a standalone Zombies game in 2023 if not 2024.

Having said that, we have little doubt regarding Treyarch's ability to make a good Zombies game or mode. It doesn't matter if it's a standalone release or part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the fan-favorite gameplay experience is in good hands with Treyarch hell-bent on proving doubters wrong.
