Ever since Zombies were introduced to the Call of Duty series back in 2008, it has grown insanely popular among the gaming community. With more and more people admitting they are spending more time fighting zombies instead of playing Team Deathmatch, many have wonder why they haven’t made a standalone Call of Duty Zombie game.

In a recent interview with Eurogamer, the site brought that idea up and Director of Campaign and Zombies for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Jason Blundell replied with an answer. Blundell stated…

“While it’s a lovely sentiment on the idea of breaking Zombies out into its own separate game, we see that people move between all three modes, and we’re always about giving as much content, as much value for money, as we possibly can. That’s why we pack our disc with as many game modes as we have currently. What started as being very much a bonus mode in Zombies has now become a third pillar. We have this massive campaign now. We’ve got the juggernaut, which is multiplayer. And now for the first time Zombies has taken off as being a full-on experience. It’s really about flexibility and variety of choice for the amount of people who buy our games.”
