Call of Duty Zombies is one of the most popular features in the first-person shooter game and fans are wondering if MW3 will have this mode.

Traditionally, the Modern Warfare games haven’t included a dedicated Zombies experience, setting them apart from other titles in the franchise.

However, there might be a glimmer of hope for the passionate Zombies fan base when it comes to COD 2023. Let’s dive into whether MW3 will feature this beloved mode.

Will Modern Warfare 3 Have Zombies?

Yes, MW3 will have Zombies. This was confirmed by the development team in their latest blog, stating that “More information coming soon on the new Modern Warfare® Zombies: The largest Zombies offering to date.

On top of this, texting the word Zombies to the newest Call of Duty promotional phone number results in you receiving an audio clip of the undead, as seen in this clip from PrestigeIsKey on Twitter:

With Sledgehammer Games taking the helm in the game’s development, the inclusion of Zombies was always likely.

The COD developers have featured Zombies in their three previous games:

  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Call of Duty: WWII
  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

At the moment, we are still awaiting information on how Zombies will feature in MW3. However, according to previous leaks by Insider Gaming, it is expected to be an Outbreak-style mode.

Originally featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Outbreak offered players an expansive Zombies experience in an open-world landscape. Participants had to accomplish various objectives while battling an endless horde of the undead.

While not every player enjoyed this style of mode, there were many that appreciated Treyarch trying something new.

Will MW3 Have Round Based Zombies?

Currently, it seems that round-based Zombies will not be featured in MW3. The current leak indicates that the game will only include an Outbreak-style mode.

Fans of the classic round-based Zombies mode may need to wait until COD 2024 for a new original Zombies experience, which will be developed by Treyarch.

Given that Treyarch is the original creator of Call of Duty Zombies, it’s probable that its upcoming title will contain the classic round-based format that fans are familiar with.
