Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is going back to a grittier, more grounded style, and that means dropping the Zombies mode that’s come to be featured in basically every COD subseries for the past few years. Modern Warfare co-op sounds a lot like the old Spec Ops mode, and Infinity Ward has confirmed it has truly replaced Zombies.
“We’re trying to create an authentic, realistic feeling world,” campaign director Jacob Minkoff tells PlayStation LifeStyle. “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.”
Gameplay, progression, and story will all continue through from the single-player campaign to the co-op mode. Now, Minkoff isn’t specific about what that actually means – he says real details on co-op will come later – but it certainly sounds like you shouldn’t expect anything as wildly different as Zombies has been in the past.
