End of the zombies story?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if anyone has said about this yet but I have been wondering is black ops 3 the end of the zombies story all together?  From the trailer for the giant they seem to have gone back in time and they are attempting to undo what richtofen (as well as maxis) have created. So this leaves us with the possibility of them visiting all the old maps and undoing certain events. This could lead to no zombies in the future for us. I could be wrong (I hope I am) but it seems like it is coming to an end or will it lead onto something much bigger.

At the time, people thought Moon would be the ending.

Then, at the end of Black Ops 2, people believed Origins was the end.

But the fact is, Zombies makes Activision a lot of money, and I don't think it will end, until it stops doing that for Activision.

@MixMasterNut found that there are staples in the middle of the Nuketown Loading Screen signifying that Nuketown is the halfway point.

Black Ops 3 may be the end?

 

But money talks...

It is very unlikely to be the end of the zombies storyline but with the addition of maps like SoE, it seems they are definitely intent on spreading it out and having these spin off storyline maps added to help add longevity to the current storyline.

It may be the end of the current story and not the end of CoD zombies alltogether.

it will be ashame for the story of the original characters to end. But this could be reason why they have brought in the SoE characters because they might want a new story to zombies (like with bo2 characters, in a way)

I'm thinking not. I have always found a comment one of the big three made once about exploring different parts of their stories in each game quite intriguing. Y'all know Treyarch and the way their stories spread out like a maze in so many different directions-I think we will continue to explore this story for some time yet.

We'll always be getting zombies as long as it continues its current popularity. They even had another studio besides Treyarch make a zombies mode that was pretty similar to the formula Treyarch built for it. Plus there was the somewhat well received Extinction mode. It has pretty much become THE definitive third/co-op mode for cod.

I really hope Extinction doesn't come back, it was good at the start but it wasn't as enjoyable knowing you had to finish it

Well I never played Ghost and honestly will probably never play a non-Treyarch cod game again. That's my solution anyway.

I get a good laugh everytime I hear Origins is the ending...it's ORIGINS.

 

Anyway, as long as Treyarch is in the CoD roster, they'll always make zombies. As time goes on, it might become unrecognizable to the older fans, but I have every reason to believe they will have this side game throughout their partner ship with Activision. I mean they even have the other developers trying to loosely steal their concept.

 

It's very possible though, that this will be the end of our old heroes. I personally believe that the loop wont end this game, but you never know.

They have some major making up to do though, the crap cliffhanger they gave us on Moon was a slap in the face, only to be followed by a backhand that was BO2.

With the extra year to work on the title, I have every expectation that this game is going to be amazing.

You sir are a very smart person for not doing that. However I don't let myself skip a Cod as I have completed every single one haha. But Treyarch is the best company working on cod by far

I think Treyarch will do whatever they can to stretch Zombies out, even if that means releasing maps that aren't really relevant to the main story... Which I'm fine with really.

Yeah, Zombies is a big fat cow that is being milked. The Nuketown staples indicate it's a halfway point. But as we saw with TranZit, we don't necessarily have to be a page in the book. And they can easily have us go into a new comic. Zombies won't end anytime soon. It'd be interesting to see if they keep it as all one big story or do what KH is doing and ending the Xehanort Saga with KH3, and starting a new one after that.

Don't you just figure if the story or game-mode reaches a point where it's too large or unwieldy that Treyarch will develop it as a stand alone?   With next-gen consoles and digital media expanding the way it has, I wouldn't be surprised by anything.  Money drives everything.  If they can make money off it they'll make it, and let's face it, I'll buy it.
