I dunno, it’s kind of weird to me.. I think this might be the first time Treyarch disappoints me.
Edit: Forget what I said. Zombies is gonna be in here. And going to the best yet! Treyarch doesn’t disappoint me atleast :)
Edit: Qoute from this place (5/03/2012)
“Our zombies fans want more zombies,” he revealed somewhat unsurprisingly. Hang on though, he’s going somewhere with this. “They literally want more zombies and they want more ways to play” (see). That means Black Ops 2 will be expanding on what the previous games have done before with the undead.
“They want bigger maps” says Lamia. “They want even more interesting things to do inside these levels. So we are crafting new worlds, creating new game modes and bigger worlds.” Much of what this new zombies will bring is partly due to an undead tech upgrade. “We’ve actually put [zombies] inside of our multiplayer engine and it’s capable of doing twice as many zombies, twice as many co-op players.”
Eight player zombies is more than just a bigger set up, it’s changing the entire game. “There are actually new modes,” says Lamia. “There’s classic mode that you guys are used to but there are going to be new modes. [Twice as many co-op players] introduces some interesting new gameplay modes. Perhaps you can think of some team game modes where there might be fun to be had?”
It all sounds like zombies is getting an upgrade from COD accompaniment to full blown main feature. Lamia finishes by saying, “There’s a lot there. It’s its own game mode. There’s a totally new creative fiction. We’re going for it this time on zombies.”
Holy crap, I’m loving Treyarch thus far. Now I don’t even care for the Main-game anymore!

Edit: Engine the game is running on (05/04/12)
As always this game will be on a Modified IW 3.0 engine.
Treyarchs games have all been on this same engine and have been updating it everytime.
Personally I find it weird, because the “IW 5.0″ engine isn’t going to be used or even the 4.0.
I know the reason for this is because they’re used to the 3.0 Engine, but isn’t change for this kinda needed now?
