Although many are holding out on zombies appearing in Modern Warfare 2, the undead isn't appearing anytime soon.

However, a recent leak suggests some kind of zombies experience is on the way in 2024. While we wait for more intel, check out our guide showcasing the Modern Warfare 2 guns list.

Alongside the campaign and multiplayer, the zombies mode is a staple of the Call of Duty franchise. Instead of working through missions and battling human opposition, some players prefer to slay endless waves of undead opponents.

As fans patiently wait for Infinity Ward to share more information on what Modern Warfare 2 has to offer, zombies fans are beginning to wonder whether a Modern Warfare 2 zombies mode is in the works alongside the single-player and multiplayer experiences.

Infinity Ward has already dipped its toes in the zombies world with the launch of Infinite Warfare. Other than that, Treyarch is widely regarded as the best developer for players to get their fix of undead action.

Although the franchise is returning to a modern setting, it's unclear if zombies will feature in Modern Warfare 2. Find all there is to know about the possibility of the undead appearing in Infinity Ward's title in our hub.

Does Modern Warfare 2 Have Zombies?

Following a media briefing that took place before the worldwide reveal of Modern Warfare 2 in June, Infinity Ward confirms the game will not have a zombies mode.

While the news isn't ideal, the game will contain an all-new mode known as DMZ which bears similarities to Escape from Tarkov.

If Infinity Ward changes its mind, we will share the latest Modern Warfare 2 zombies news in our hub.

What Next For Call of Duty Zombies?

While there's a slim chance of Modern Warfare 2 featuring zombies, there's still some positive news for fans.

In recent months, a Treyarch developer claims the studio has "big plans" for future Zombies experiences which is particularly interesting. Rumours of a standalone zombies title continue to circulate as fans hope the developer avoids a repeat performance of Vanguard zombies.

Modern Warfare 2 Zombies Replacement

As mentioned earlier, it's likely DMZ is replacing zombies for the Modern Warfare 2 cycle. Additionally, there are also rumours of Spec Ops making a return to Call of Duty, which should allow some form of co-op play.

With Modern Warfare 2 expected to have a two-year cycle, there's still plenty of content for players. But, if you still want your zombies fix, you'll have to play another Call of Duty or sit tight until Treyarch's next offering.
