Activision has confirmed Vita shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified won’t feature Zombies mode. In response to questions about the presence of Zombies in the handheld version, Activision community manager, Dan Amrich, said:
“Unfortunately the official answer is no, but for what strikes me as a decent reason: Multiplayer took priority.
“That makes sense to me. This is the first Call of Duty game on Vita, and it needs to deliver on its core strengths — arguably, multiplayer gaming with twin-stick controls in a portable format. 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.”
Amrich pointed out Declassified will feature Hostiles mode, which – like Zombies – requires players to survive against waves of enemies, but those enemies won’t be undead people eaters.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is scheduled for release on PS Vita on November 13.
