Zombies? If not zombies than maybe some sort of round based co-op mode. Several fans sent us tips once they saw the new Xbox One Advanced Warfare controller that was announced today. The notches on the controller bare a striking resemblance to round indicator notches on the Zombies H.U.D. and also the Black Ops box art. This is pure speculation right now seeing as how Sledgehammer Games hasn’t revealed their co-op mode yet. It wouldn’t surprise us though seeing as how there are a ton of Black Ops 2 features that made it into Advanced Warfare. We’ll keep you posted if we hear more…

Thanks for the tip and image @CrownThePedro

  • Smh it obviously will be a dog mode

    • galaxygraber

      I’d play it…

    • David Sync

      Enemy doges incoming
      Much wow
      Very innovative
      Such shooting

      • galaxygraber

        I was thinking more along the lines of a mode where you play as a dog mauling enemy soldiers. That would be much better.

    • k5berry

      It’s called “Fuck You PETA”

  • David

    tbh I’d rather let treyarch stick to Zombies and allow Sledgehammer to start their own thing, like robots or something, idk

    • MisterCMC

      I would rather them just use zombies and make something good, than them forcing themselves to try and be creative and innovative like IW did. And then fuck it up.

      • ‘Fuck it up’? How did IW ‘fuck up’ Extinction?

        • Josh482

          Extinction was shit and boring ,even spec ops is way better than this boring shit.

          • Black

            I miss the Spec Ops.

        • Michel

          Zombies was hands down better then Extinctions.
          But in my opinion it wasn’t bad.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          hmmmmm maybe because EXTINCTION MODE FUCKING SUCKS DICK.

      • Carrisi

        Totally agree. Despite some people liking extinction i felt it wasn’t close to being as addictive and fun as zombies, just the mechanics of zombies is streets ahead.

      • Xander

        I actually think Extinction is good in it’s own way and isn’t really comparable to zombies. It isn’t a horde mode, more a set of missions that are episodic. Although it doesn’t have the same structure as zombies, it introduced teamwork much more heavily than what zombies did, and it has a very large meta to it(Teeth, speed-runs, Intel and so on.) I think the problem people had with Extinction is that they were expecting an EXTREME sci-fi, zombie-esque thing, whereas it’s more of a realistic alien invasion(well as realistic as aliens get :P) that incorporates a more linear, strategy based type of experience.

      • Michel

        I have a feeling, that Treyarch is actually working together with SHG.
        There must be a reason why the game looks so much like BO2.

        Treyarch is probably helping SHG with making there first COD and is making Zombies for AW.

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        but you assume they cant fuck up a zombies series? think again. i would be heartbroken if they fucked up an entire zombies series and it’s storyline.

      • Edwin Cortez

        zombies and extinction have nothing in common apart from being alternative modes of multi player on COD. i don’t like zombies i found it redundant i only play them for the Easter egg and im done. in extinction the objectives keep me at least motivated for completing the game. i hope SH make something of their own.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Infinity Ward didn’t make Extinction you idiot, that was Neversoft.

    • Jim

      i rather have both company do zombies mode.. not shitty aliens like ghosts has.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I think something goes wrong in the BioLabs, that causes a disease outbreak and turns humans into these super-human like monsters, like the ones in I Am Legend. I was originally going to do a video on this weeks ago, but with all the talk on Cyborgs and Robots, I never bothered to upload the video.

    • Dude imagine zombies with exosuits,shit op as fu**

      • RileyWoof

        Hello fellow Riley

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        nothing is op about it, the suits are balanced from what we’ve seen.

    • Kenny Alexandre

      Hmmmm sounds legit .because the Biolab have some test subjects Jordan it’s the same tally marks from bo1 strange stuff

      • jordanxbrookes

        I know, maybe when something goes wrong in testing and those test subjects break out of those containers, kill the scientists or even infect the scientists, and therefore they’ve turned into diseased humans.

        • Kenny Alexandre

          Now that will be sickkk bro..can’t wait to see. . Btw I subscribed to you on YouTube. .for support?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Thanks man, appreciate the support, hope I’m right, sounds like it could be a good storyline too.

          • Kenny Alexandre

            No problem man.. it could be.. hopefully Treyarch and infinity ward could help an great Co op mode definitely treyarch

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yeah, 2015 should be an awesome year for gamers 🙂

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            IW’s ectinction mode is a fail so no, hopefully just Treyarch is helping lol

    • The reason I dont think that it is zombies, is the fact that I don’t think it is the right setting for a zombie gamemode. But then again, BOII didn’t really have the right setting either.

    • George Claude

      a little far-fetched don’t you think

    • Godly

      It would make sense because if you played Zombies in BO2 with like an exoskeleton, it would be too easy to win lol. You’d just be jumping everywhere shooting. Whatever it is you do in co-op has to be able to keep up with you for you to lose at any point, if that makes sense.

      • jordanxbrookes

        If you’ve seen the infected humans from I Am Legend, you will know they also can jump high, run fast, and have super-human like strength, which can help balance the exo-suit out.


      the multiplayer maps have never been relevant to the zombies storyline so probably should not start making such rediculous assumptions.

      • STEALTHD3M0N

        Launch from black ops. Ascension?????

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          those maps are not the same and again…. the multiplayer map has NOTHING to do with the zombies storyline

          • STEALTHD3M0N

            There was a mission which took place at the launch facility and there was a mp map called launch. They then made ascension based of those

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            the stories do not tie together and have nothing to do with one another

          • STEALTHD3M0N

            Why can’t sledgehammer tie their co op with an evnt in a mission

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            they could but then at that point if you assume that, people are just jumping to conclusions, it’s far fetched.

          • STEALTHD3M0N

            I agree we don’t even know if it’ll be survival based or spec ops. I hope we have cyborgs as I prefer round based survival like zombies

          • STEALTHD3M0N

            There is a mission which takes place in the biolab area and they could base their co op storyline of that

      • STEALTHD3M0N

        Also there is a mission which takes place in the biolab area so they could take it from that

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          exactly….something scientific doesn’t mean it’s about zombies…

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s not just a multiplayer map, there’s also a mission called BioLab, a bit of a coincidence don’t you think?

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          umm it’s not surprising that a MP map is taken from the Campaign mode since that has happened in the past. BUT we are talking about zombies and there is no relation from Campaign to Zombies in the past, therefore people are pulling shit out of their ass at this point saying this has anything to do with zombies

          • jordanxbrookes

            As STEALTH said, Ascension is basically just like Launch from Black Ops, and also that Black Ops mission too. Also when did I say anything about Zombies? There’s a difference between plagued humans who can be cured to zombies that can’t be.

          • Dylan DuGirls

            Just because it’s never been done before doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        just referring to how the campaign or MP mode don’t tie into the 3rd game type… for example zombies & extinction. But if u really want to make a far fetched guess for almost no logical reason then go right ahead, judging by how stories of different modes did not tie together in the past, these don’t seem like a hint of any sort whatsoever.

        • Jeffery Coffey

          The story does tie in with ghost in a way because the aliens are released because of the Odin strike in the campaign

  • I think it’s just either a tribute or a meaningless set of notches. Treyarch and Sledgehammer seem very close allies, given by the game design similarities and friendliness in social media networks.

  • Khaleel Ward

    plz no zombies


      or you could just not play it and play multilayer mode while not whining like a bitch…

      • Khaleel Ward

        or you could be an adult and ask why I said no zombies. Maybe I just want them to create something new/different.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          don’t even bother acting mature when you spelt “please” as “plz” like a teen girl in your last comment

  • Max Martinez

    Please have cyborg type Zombies or some co-op mode similar to zombies!

  • Wow

    Didn’t they say the coop mode was going to be coop story?

  • Sgt.Pepper

    I hope they don’t, I’d much rather wait a year for treyarch to do it as they know what they are doing and have already built a storyline, surely treyarch own the rights to zombies anyway since it was completely there idea

  • MrGladiator20

    I think it could be something like drones instead of zombies. You have to fight drones wave after wave and try to survive. Considering that SHG likes 3arc so much it could be very similar.

  • Haydn

    Do not do ‘Zombies’. That is treyarch’s thing! Having somethignsimilar is cool though 😉

    • Treyarch could be running the zombies mode in advanced warfare. David vondarhar is a very sexy sneaky bald man

  • Dylan DuGirls

    You could reskin the zombies to look like unicorns just please gimme something

  • Son Goku

    I can’t wait for next year as it’s the next treyarch cod!!
    Which means even more zombies!!

    • MrGladiator20

      If you play all the zombies Easter eggs it seems like zombies is over. The ending really made it seem like the story is truly finished

      • I’m still Son Goku

        I did do them all.
        I been doing them since world at war
        But still I hope we see zombies again because that last cutscene in origins zombies map bo2 left on a cliffhanger

      • Sgt.Pepper

        But as treyarch said before bo2 came out, lots of people thought zombies was over in bo1 because of what happened at the end of moon

  • NO NO NO. This is treyarch’s co-op mode not theirs! They should come out with something other than zombies or aliens. Not hating or anything, I am just stating my opinion and I hope it is not zombies. I know its just a speculation too.

    • ITs not Treyarchs, its Activisions. And seeing as how Treyarch, IW, and Sledgehammer Games are all owned by Activision, it could be used by any of them.

    • matt

      If it happens then it will almost certainly be Treyarch’s zombie team who are brought in to create it, allowing Sledghammer to work on SP and MP. Then Treyarch can continue the story in their 2015 game.

    • Carrisi

      Getting a tried and tested coop mode the community loves can only be a good thing though?

      • Godly

        Treyarch has done nothing but good with zombies over the 2 years they have been doing it (2 game cycles). But, if another studio took over, people would be like “NO ITS GOING TO GO TERRIBLE THEY’LL RUIN IT”. One thing you will learn, is that you can’t please this community. haha

        • Suu

          “Isn’t it 3 years?..”
          “Since WaW, BO1 and BO2?..”

  • Put the lonely mailbox!!!

  • Son Goku

    ITS LONELY MAILBOX WHO DESERvES the damn credit.
    All credit goes to mailbox

  • sloppystickgaming

    Well they took a lot of other stuff from Black Ops mind as well take Zombies too…

    • It wouldnt be taking. They have to have permission to use another company’s idea. The AW STAFF probly head over to David vondarhars house and blow him for use of his ideas. Imagine how sore his dick is from all the sucking the AW STAFF had to do to get zombies! Kappa

      • sloppystickgaming

        LOL yeah one big happy family….

  • jordanxbrookes

    Even Jimmy said credit goes to the Lonely Mailbox.

  • Alex

    Since they took so much from Black Ops 2 maybe it’s just a way to show their appreciation of Treyarch’s game

  • Zarky

    I hope its zombies! Only 3rd game mode I’ve had fun playing on cod and is something to do other than constant multiplayer

  • Seven

    I honestly would like this to be classic zombies. Not zombies with exo suits or anything.

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    Although it would be nice to have CoD Zombies earlier, I really hope that Treyarch makes it. I don’t want CoD Zombies to become this milked mode with so much stuff going on that people can’t even keep track with the storyline anymore.

    This kind of happened already, in BO2. I liked how Zombies was, back in the BO days. BO2’s Zombie mode had some over-complicated stuff and the “Openworld” feeling didn’t really stick to me.
    I’d rather have a smaller map when it comes to CoD in general.

  • MASEboogie23

    I don’t think zombies will be in AW because don’t forget Slegehammer said that Exo suits and abilities will be in Co-Op… Exo suits would ruin zombies…

  • James Veach


  • Chaos is pure scum

  • dddsf

    Mutant mode

  • Maverick

    I don’t think its supposed to be a nod to zombies, just that its supposed to be like somebody making tick marks on their weapon stock or vehicle for kills.

    I hope they let Treyarch stick to the zombies, Aliens for IW, and then Sledgehammer have robots, cyborgs, or dudes in exo suits. I would like to see some form of the Survival and Chaos modes from MW3.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Anyone see the Goliath streak, yet?

    • Mitch

      Yeah, really similar to the Juggernaut.

  • PatPatPat


    @YetiSmasher it's the total number of kills @GlenSchofield has racked up in #AdvancedWarfareMP over the last 3 years.— Michael Condrey (@MichaelCondrey) August 12, 2014


    Don’t think it’s zombies, but it’s definitely gotta be some sort of survival round based thing even if this isn’t a hing towards it!

  • AlexK489

    Maybe it won’t be Treyarch’s zombies, but you guys remember that Cyborg Zombies that was released in China on PC?
    It’s not terribly far fetched, maybe that’s our mode.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Sledgehammer copying a lot of BO2 stuff(which I am not complaining about) makes me wonder if Treyarch is going to do something completely different for next years game. If AW is a hit and everyone likes the new MP mechanics its going to be hard to go back to standard FPS movements. We’ll have to wait and see.

  • Rawashere

    Probably doing “mutants” similar to zombies.. And they got that biolab map. So generically altered mutant thingys is my bet. They might even look like the things in the tanks

  • Jr Tandoc

    I don’t think that zombies will be returning in Advanced Warfare. Treyarch could’ve gave Sledgehammer some juice to make their own co-op mode? Treyarch allowed Sledgehammer do a lot of stuff from BO2 so zombies is a tiny chance. I know Treyarch will obviously save zombies for their game in 2015.

  • [OP][HyD] Rockies

    everyone is so stupipd it is just #8 The eighth online call of duty, everyone is over thinking things!

    • Dr. LilRobot

      it’s the COD community–even moreso, the ZOMBIES community. what do you expect?

    • DaRaginAsian

      But it’s the ninth, isn’t it? CoD3, CoD4, WaW, MW2, BO, MW3, BO2, Ghosts, AW.

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        you started at 3 and four, so that makes AW the 11th COD

  • Autocorrect

    Watch the Noahj456 version he explains more possibilities!

  • Guest

    It’s probably Zombies with Exoskeleton suits

  • Michel

    I’m interested if there will ever be a COD that will be made by 4 studios:
    Single-Player: Infinity Ward
    Multi-Player: SHG
    – League Play/Clan Ward: BeachHead Studios.
    Zombies: Treyarch

  • exo suit zombies ohgod


    wow people jump to conclusions very easily but just because there is a kill tally on a controller and a multiplayer map that is scientific doesn’t mean there’s goin to be zombies! let’s think logically about this…
    1. if sledghehammer did zombies then you think Treyarch would come out with another set of zombies the next year? it would be cool but zombies is done very well by treyarch and only they should be doing it so nobody fucks it up. Treyarch zombies is an extremely high standard.

    2 the multiplayer maps have always had NOTHING to do with the zombies modes (the guy in the video below trying to assume anything scientific = zombies)

  • Romeo Benjamin Laurente RN

    I bet its going to be a mode with sharks that have freakin laser beams attached to their heads. :p

  • Epicsand

    They have not revealed the co-op mode, so it could be SH’s version of zombies, or any survival mode.

  • UpRiftCOD

    It looks like a kill count to me.

  • Walter Iego

    No thanks.

  • WasabeJuice

    It maybe not zombies but Dead Space kind of undead like the necromorphs. So it maybe round based fight against monsters, and scarier than zombies.

  • Nicholas Lardieri
