Earlier this week, we discussed the possibility and fear of Black Ops 3 not releasing until 2015. There has been some rumors going around recently, suggesting that Sledgehammer Games may release the only Call of Duty game in 2014 instead. You have spoken in numbers though, telling us firmly that Black Ops 3 needs to come first for one reason alone – zombies.
Black Ops 2 was a great game, nobody can dispute that. However, many may argue that the only reason it was a great game was that it depended on the longevity that the new zombie mode brought to the table.

Despite the tried and tested, some would say ‘recycled’ formula, fans still can’t get enough of Call of Duty zombies and now we see that the demand for Black Ops 3 zombies is as high as it’s even been.
Gamers have told us that they actually wouldn’t mind waiting another two years for the Black Ops 3 release date. Let’s not forget that this will be the first COD Black Ops zombies experience to be running on next-generation PS4 and Xbox One hardware.
That takes time to perfect and obviously Treyarch nor fans want to see the game rushed for the sake of meeting any imposed deadlines that Activision may have set behind the scenes.
A next-gen zombies map on Black Ops 3 sounds like an amazing prospect to look forward to, so would a 2015 release actually be a blessing in disguise? It’s a long time to wait of course, but imagine if the game is rushed – Treyarch would lose their reputation as the ‘best’ COD developer in the franchise and Activision would face a new backlash from fans who love to criticise anything that involves the words ‘Call of Duty’.
Would you agree that you wouldn’t mind waiting until 2015 to ensure that Black Ops 3 zombies on PS4 and Xbox One is the best experience seen so far?
Let us know your thoughts on the rumored ‘delay’ and your thoughts and ideas on what would make Black Ops 3 zombies amazing.
