We've seen the walking undead in every Call of Duty since they were introduced in World at War . The upcoming Black Ops II will certainly have zombies, too.
But Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for the PlayStation Vita will not. Activision community manager Dan Amrich confirmed at the One of Swords blog that the new portable CoD won't be featuring zombies because the developers have placed standard multiplayer at the top of their priority list. As Amrich wrote:
"That’s the core experience, and that simply needs to come first. There’s always a list of things you want to do and things you need to do, and at the end of the day, realistic goals are the ones that people actually attain."
That being said, the game will boast a Hostiles Mode, which is apparently similar. You have to take out wave after wave of enemies, even if they're not undead…you just have to make 'em dead, as is common in any shooter. Personally, I'll just be interested to see how Declassified turns out. I think the Vita has proven it can provide a pretty great FPS experience with those dual analog sticks, so… Still want Killzone: Mercenary more, though.
