Call of Duty: Warzone could receive a zombie game in the future

The Outbreak mode of Black Ops Cold War is serving as testing grounds for an open-world zombies game. Rumors suggest that Activision is working on a standalone title for zombies that will function like Warzone. Incidentally, the storyline of Warzone has brought a shipwreck that could bring a zombie army on the island, which serves as a foreshadowing for things to come.

If the expansive open-world zombie mode, Outbreak, is indeed an elaborate test, then Activision will crank out another game mode for Verdansk or a standalone title. Right now, in the Outbreak event, players have to fight against the horde of zombies in order to escape the Ural Mountain range.

Adding fuel to the fire, the community has already seen noticeable achievements being introduced into Warzone. It could lead to a new mode that could be added into the game that will feature a nuke. If the players survive the onslaught and escape the island, then the island will be spared.

On the flip side, it could also lead to nukes being unleashed to stop the zombies, but it will leave the island in pitiful condition. Developers could do something similar within Warzone, which could also lead to a complete rework.

More leaks within the community point at something of this sort in the upcoming season that will change Verdansk forever.
