Black Ops 3 Zombies demand higher than ever

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.

Next-gen zombies..are you ready?
Next-gen zombies..are you ready?

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.

zombie custom maps anybody?

Cannot wait until bo3 comes out. COD AW was alright but I didn’t like exo suits and I hope Bo3 doesn’t have them. There is also one thing I want for next gen and that is custom zombie maps! That would be amazing. Also don’t have different type of zombies and if Bo3 do set it in the future , not too far into the future as I am getting a bit bored of future cods.

Forget black ops 3, I want to see Treyarch make a game dedicated to and follow on from the zombie mode in the previous black ops. I enjoy cod but they are different games and sharing a disk just limits quality, speed and potential. Anyway I was absolutely gutted when I heard about AW being released and felt robbed when I played these so called zombies literally spat on and smashed the disk to bits. theres nothing worse than paying for the game then getting home and seeing u need to pay again to go online and then u need… Read more »

A stand alone zombie game with a zombie campaign, “zombie” styled mulitplayer and then again, as we all love and know, the good old Zombie Mode; would be the best game ever created and published by Treyarch. A good 40% at least of Black Ops players and cod players only play for zombies/survival mode, so this would be an amazing feat since we’re now using Next Gen consoles! Go Treyarch! Make us proud! 🙂 No matter what your making, im sure we’ll all love it!

Zombies is the only reason I play COD. I haven’t touched a campaign since MW2 & the whole spawn-die, spawn-die multiplayer is old & lame. Spawn,, step farward, dude spawns behind you, die, rinse & repeat. I have to argue that making a stand-alone Zombie game would be the greatest thing for next gen consoles. COZ anyone?

I am a huge fan of the grief game mode I started playing late but love everything about it took me a long time to figure everything out treyarch take your time with it but not to much time? 😊

ps can’t wait

that guy over there
that guy over there

make the zombies better there are improvements to be made
i don’t really care about how it looks i jest felt black ops zombies the learning curve was very difficult and in black ops 2 zombies it was too easy
if you fix anything give us back spots we can camp since treyarch decided zombies can jump 30 feet it has become increasingly difficult to set up a good location
IE der riese’s walkway that thing was awesome the random box could show up and there were 2 ways to jump off.

I don’t really care whose in charge of making cod, i just wish whoever makes the decisions would realise that treyarc should be allowed to do zombies every year regardless of whose developing the main game. we don’t want an alternative to zombies on treyarc’s off year, just zombies. so either let these other developers have a go at zombies on treyarcs year off OR let treyarc do it every year and the others do multi player. OR activision could grow a pair and seperate zombies into its own game

Its a good thing that Call of duty now has a 3 way developer triangle now. Each developer has two years to better understanding of the next gen console and utilize it perfectly for its time. Next-Gen Zombies in 2015 ill see you then.

As long the the game is outstanding i don’t care when it’s released. Would i love for it to be released this year, of course, but the truth is I want them to do there best especially that it’s gonna be a ps4 or xbox 1 game

It is NOT going to be black ops 3, the black ops series is done with for now… However treyarch are working on a COD title that is set to be released in November, zombies is coming back… PREPARE FOR DECENSION (hint hint)

Look. Let’s get this straight Treyarch are under contract with Activsion to create a Call Of Duty game every other year until 2016. The next CoD game WILL be from Treyarch and WON’T be Black Ops 3. Zombies IS returning. Sledgehammer are working on a alternative title.

I would like a good, not highly scripted COD game. A good, 15+ hour campaign with co-op and custom game styles like WAW. I don’t want multiplayer or Zombies. I would love to see 16+ player campaign lobbies with no AI on your side. They need to bring some multiplayer aspects to the campaign.

I will wait till then only if it was early in the year and they don’t make it for previous generation do next generation doesn’t get held back like ghosts did.

I don’t think it will be released in 2015 as the next franchise of call of duty will be created by Infinityward. So maybe black ops 3 will be released this year, possibly, who knows.

im still playing black ops 2 cuz of zombies. i havent played multiplayer since MW2 cuz i suck @ multiplayer. if it is a better quality game in 2015 i rather wait the extra yr. ps4 is going to cost an extra $50 for the playstation plus to play. my ps3 doesnt cost any money to play online unless u have a xbox360.
