Obviously most of the excitement this weekend is squarely focused on the recently-announced Call of Duty: WWII, but it isn’t the only CoD game making headlines.
Despite coming out nearly a year-and-a-half ago, Call of Duty: Black Ops III still has a pretty active playerbase, as a lot of fans stuck with the game rather than jump to the widely-criticized Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The support for Black Ops III is so strong, developer Treyarch has promised new content for the game in 2017…
“At Treyarch, we are [still] excited about [Call of Duty: Black Ops III] and as long as they continue playing our game, we’re going to continue to support it in the same way. We can look forward to another healthy and fun year of updates in 2017.”
Treyarch didn’t specify what kind of new Black Ops III content we can expect this year, but there’s no keeping a secret from Call of Duty fans. Redditor Mau4453 spotted this retail listing from Spanish chain Gameplanet, which indicates more Zombies content is on the way for Black Ops III.
Roughly translated, the listing says:
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies
A full package which brings the original contents of Black Ops III and the content of Zombie Chronicles, which includes 8 classic Treyarch Zombies maps remastered, all of which include the Gobblegum function.
Zombie Chronicles huh? That would certainly make sense. Treyarch has always done the zombies stuff better than Activision’s other Call of Duty studios, and fans may be going through undead withdrawals this year, as Call of Duty: WWII most likely doesn’t have a Zombies mode.
