The release of Modern Warfare 2 has prompted a lot of online discussion around the game’s maps, campaign, and Warzone 2, with one question also coming up quite often: does Modern Warfare 2 have a Zombies mode?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has proven to be a huge success for developer, Infinity Ward, and publisher, Activision. The return of the Modern Warfare franchise — which is essentially its own gaming line on its own — appears to have reinvigorated interest in the Call of Duty series after two lacklustre entries in Vanguard and Black Ops – Cold War.
Modern Warfare 2 is far from perfect: there’s a lot of chatter and criticism aimed at the game’s map design, although its overall balance, multiplayer experience, and campaign are generally praised by the franchise’s passionate online community. And now, with Warzone 2 on the horizon, Modern Warfare 2 is undoubtedly the “talk of the town” in gaming circles.
There are plenty of new game modes, maps, weapons, and more in Modern Warfare 2, but what about the classic Call of Duty Zombies mode, which has established itself as one of the more popular modes in the Call of Duty universe?
Does Modern Warfare 2 have a Zombies mode?
Unfortunately, as it currently stands, Modern Warfare 2 does not currently have a Zombies mode.
Infinity Ward has not announced any plans to release a Zombies mode for MW2, which is unsurprising considering the developer has a tendency to instead focus on its main multiplayer modes, Warzone and Special Ops mode, which returns in Modern Warfare 2.
Spec Ops first appeared in the OG Modern Warfare 2 back 2009, as well as Modern Warfare 2, and 2019’s Modern Warfare reboot.
Zombies has always been more of a Treyarch and Sledgehammer Games mode, having appeared in all five Black Ops titles, as well as Vanguard and Call of Duty: WW2.
Given Special Ops returns in Modern Warfare 2, and an Infinity Ward game never having had a Zombies game, we can probably safely assume it won’t make its way to MW2 in future. Although we can’t completely rule it out coming in DLC.
