It was recently reported that Treyarch have a new open-world Zombies mode in the works, the new mode is allegedly called ‘Outbreak’ and could be headed to the game before we know it.
The discovery was made when Call of Duty insider ‘Okami‘ took to Twitter to share the news, the leak was then quick to spread to Reddit earlier this week.
The new mode is set to be ‘open-world style‘ Zombies mode which we could see soon in added an upcoming season according to the leaker. Okami went on to say “In other COD news – there’s a new mode called Outbreak coming soon. Don’t know all the details but it’s supposed to be Treyarch style, co-op zombies on a large scale Fireteam map. I’ve heard it described as “open world zombies,” so take that for what you will.”

Don’t know all the details but it’s supposed to be Treyarch style, co-op zombies on a large scale Fireteam map.
I’ve heard it described as “open world zombies,” so take that for what you will.
This information has really got fans asking questions, the mention of ‘Outbreak’ being featured on a Fireteam map has brought the question if it would be an already existing map of if we should expect something new to be released.
However, this wouldn’t be the first time that we have seen Zombies added to a large scale map, we saw a similar set up in Blackout where the zombies would randomly appear throughout Black Ops 4 matches.
Black Ops 2 was another title that featured a semi-open zombies map, the map TranZit was a transport based mode in which players would need to fight their way across a giant battlefield in a robot controlled bus.
If these rumours prove to be true it likely that we wouldn’t see this release until after season 2 has had their huge content update, it is thought that Season 2 will be lunched within the last week of February.
However, Activision are yet to confirm if there is any truth to the rumours, so until then fans will just have to wait it out for an official announcement. We will continue to keep you updated here at Gamerficial, so be sure to check back for the latest updates.
