Don’t expect zombies to appear in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. As explained by lead multiplayer designer Todd Alderman at a recent press event, Infinity Ward isn’t down with breaking their game’s fiction with the inclusion of otherworldly creatures or objects. It simply isn’t what Infinity Ward wants to do with this game, he said, but the studio is open to it in the future (with a different game, silly).

“We like to keep it consistent and in the same universe,” Alderman told NowGamer.com, when asked to share his thoughts about the zombies in Call of Duty: World at War.

“It depends on what it is. For us it didn’t fit in our game. We have Spec Ops which is our off-the-storyline path, but it’s just not our bag really. We like to keep it consistent and in the same universe, not to say that we wouldn’t do something like that in the future, but for what we are doing right now it’s just not something we’d do. “

Alderman went on to say that the goal was to have components of the game compliment each other. In his words, “if you have ray-guns and teleporters it’s not going to help.”

The apparent success of the “Nazi Zombie” mode in World at War challenges that thought, but we like it when a developer sticks with the game’s universe. Think about how terrible Uncharted would have been if Naughty Dog suddenly dropped aliens or whatever into the later chapters.

“I don't think I can ever go back to the old style of Call of Duty.” I've heard some variation of that sentence at least once per week since the launch of Advanced Warfare, and if I were Treyarch or Infinity Ward...more

Xbox gets Call of Duty's star-studded Exo Zombies DLC first on January 27

Zombies again. It's what people know, I guess. Comforting, familiar zombies. With Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's first DLC pack, Havoc ($15 standalone, or included in the $50 season pass), the undead will don exoskeletons ...more

Zombies, monsters, Captain America: Call of Duty is different in China

In China, the Call of Duty series is devoid of Kevin Spacey, but that doesn't mean they won't try to sell it with big American actors. This live-action trailer for Call of Duty Online, the China-exclusive free-to-play Call of Duty, features Captain America's (and Snowpiercer's) Chris Evans.  There are also some lacking CG zombies and Gears of War style giant monsters.more
