Alright so as everyone know's by now zombies is usually Activision's game mode & usually Infinity Ward or Sledge Hammer do the next CoD & switch back & forth between 2 companies or 3. But the weird thing about this year is that Battle Royale isn't a thing anymore & this year has zombies again. If I'm not mistaken I believe this is the first time this has ever happened. I may be wrong but this is from what I see & know, if I'm being honest I never really payed any attention to Vanguard because the SBMM (Skill Based Match Making). I usually mod anyway so I know it's weird coming from a modder but I just have to know if anyone else knows why because I really wanna know what changed this year.

Activision is just the producer, I think you mean Treyarch :wink:.

I believe Warzone is getting a Vangaurd update later in this month off of my searches I could be very wrong though!

So unfortunately, it has happened before. Vangaurd is essentially a second version of CoD WW2 - I believe by the same studio as WW2 even. WW2 had zombies, though I can say I never even as much played it once! And WW2 was in my top 3 for CoDs since Bo2.

SBMM has been ruining cods for years now, I just want to be a god one match and the next match verse FaZe again.

Wow thank you for this, it was actually very informative, didn't know everything you said & now I understand why the game is the way it is after you said it's the 2nd CoD WW. Thank you

There’s supposed to be a whole new map for Warzone. Vanguard players get access one day early.

WW2’s zombies, though not as good as Treyarch’s, is much better than what zombies content they have in Vanguard I’d say. Vanguard basically just took elements Cold War’s Outbreak zombies mode and made it worse from what I understand.

I remember reading about some of the matchmaking systems being patented for cosmetics. Basically, an algorithm which influences who you play with based on which skins the other person has purchased. I think the idea is that if you see some fancy skins in your kill-cam, you might want to throw your wallet at Activision.

Honestly in my opinion, if they take away SBMM CoD would be 110% better. That can drastically improve CoD but they don't want to listen to the fans.

There was a few other games with Zombies before, I believe it started on Advanced Warfare but those were just the other developers takes on Zombies that were surprisingly not bad. I'd say they were better than Vanguards Zombies. Really hoping they put out some more classic styled Zombies on Vanguard soon.

Treyarch is actually handling Zombies on Vanguard this year even though Vanguard is Sledgehammers game.

Essentially the same as what happened for Cold War, but seemingly a half a month or so behind when the change started happening, right?

Treyarch is still the only company to make zombies feel good, though since Bo1 I’ve had a hard time enjoying zombies… with each game they’ve gotten more based on Easter eggs to have fun, and getting to high rounds has been easier and easier. I haven’t touched CoD since MW19, just out of pure disgust for the brand and ruining such good titles by adding such harsh SBMM.

I remember hearing about that too, it’s seemingly targeted at high profile content creators too. If they get easier lobbies they get more content, which results in more videos… which results in more “advertising” the worthless weapon skins and purchasable items. I will say, it’s better than the loot crates… but not by much.

Yeah Advanced Warfare zombies were actually pretty damn good, I really enjoyed it like Bo2. I don't have Vanguard so I'm not sure how the zombies is, I'm actually pretty damn tired of CoD so I seen Halo & figured I get back on after not playing for 10+ years. But I honestly hope they do bring the OG style zombies back it was better that way. I like that Treyarch took over zombies for this game because it'll have some hope with improving or changing. But thank you for this, I found this informative.
