In an interview with GameInformer, Activision CEO stated that the company has no plans to release a standalone Call of Duty Zombies game.

Zombies mode in Call of Duty has taken on its own life form over the past several years, with its own large dedicated community since Call of Duty: World at War. Many have wondered if there was a possibility of ever having a standalone Call of Duty Zombies title, but Activision CEO says that Call of Duty will remain a bundled game with distinct modes in one package, versus having separate games for different modes.

No, I think that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts when they’re bundled together for the following reasons. There’s a lot of crossover. It’s not like we have these three modes and then there’s just three types of players that break into three factions, and never cross over. There’s a tremendous amount of crossover between zombies and multiplayer. There’s a tremendous amount of crossover between single-player and zombies. Now, there’s variability in the next step: How successful we drive that omnivorous behavior. It’s really advantageous when we do. People who play more than one mode stick around a lot longer, we’ve noticed statistical. So that value proposition creates both a better experience for the consumer and it creates a player who sticks around longer in our community. For us, we think it’s a win-win when we get it right. I also think that it’s just a competitive advantage.

I think that Call of Duty operates at a scale where we can afford to really invest once a year in these epic releases that take three years to make and an army to produce. Not everybody has that ability, and so I think that that value proposition is a huge part of what we think is fun about that game, is awesome about the game, and our fans expect from the game. The other thing, I was talking about making the experience better for people migrating from game to game, you’re also gonna see us do more experiments in terms of trying to unify the player who moves from mode to mode and trying to make that a richer experience. So I think the headquarters is a place where no matter what type of player you are – there’s gonna be a rewards path, there’s gonna be an interaction opportunity to meet other players, like you to meet up, to team up. So I think it’s something we can definitely get better at.

    Color me shocked.I love zombies but I know that this wouldn’t happen

  • DJSaviD

    Not shocking. That would be one fucking boring game

  • I commend Activision for this decision. While I rarely ever play zombies, my kids love it. Knowing I don’t have to shelve out an additional $60 for the zombies experience (at least in the near future, right? LOL) is a good thing.

  • Its better to be its own mode than a full gane

    Mob of the dead remaster and a zombie map set in London just a few theories going about at the moment. If a London map is set for the next game i hope its in the 1800s sort of like jack ripper era London or assassin creed syndicate London

    I fucking love these forums they have a comment section for a reason but if you so much as disagree with anything 1 off the 3 grown men from the Charlie intel team beating there meat over a fucking video game delete your comment. You fucking sad old men get a life. It’s just a game

    Considering most people who play zombies now play it because they want to get away from the whole “futuristic space age” thing, it would be a much better call to just give zombies players their own game.

      Except the “futuristic space age” era for CoD is pretty much over, man. With all the flak IW received, no way they’re jumping back there any time soon.

  • Unclecoon

    The problem with giving zombies its own game is that the multiplayer would die
