Modern Warfare 2 players have been eagerly awaiting the possible addition of the popular Zombies mode – But will the Infinity Ward title return to the classic CoD mode? Here’s everything we know about whether MW2 will have Zombies.

Call of Duty has introduced players to a plethora of modes over the years but few have maintained the staying power of the franchise’s beloved Zombies mode.

Introduced as a bonus level in World At War, no one expected the simplistic mayhem of shooting the undead to take off like it has. Despite several iterations, the mode has never made an appearance in the Modern Warfare franchise.

However, despite the lack of Modern Warfare zombies, many fans have spotted the inclusion of a Zombie-style game mode, prompting the question, will Modern Warfare 2 have Zombies? We have all the answers here.

Will Modern Warfare 2 have Zombies?

Unfortunately, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will not have a Zombie mode.

No, Modern Warfare 2 will not have zombies. As confirmed in an interview from VentureBeat, the PR team at Infinity Ward explained that “there will be no zombies” in Modern Warfare 2.

While they didn’t expand on the statement, the answer is undeniably definite, further confirming we will not be seeing the popular Zombies mode in the recent Modern Warfare iteration.

Such a statement follows previous rumors where one player pointed toward some hidden playlist assets. Spotted alongside the likes of Capture The Flag and Hardpoint, the playlist appeared to display a ‘Round-Based Zombies’ mode.

Despite these rumors and excitement from fans, the hidden game mode is now unlikely to ever come to fruition. It seems players will have to enjoy the current game modes in Modern Warfare 2 or try out DMZ and Warzone 2.

Alternatively, for those wanting to play something a little more zombie-like, there could be an Infection mode coming to the game soon thanks to a leak.
