Rumors re-emerge about the development of Zombie Chronicles 2 , possible new add-on content for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War whose realization has been rumored ever since the last episode of the series made by Treyarch made its debut on the market in the last months of 2020.
Returning to the question is the insider Tom Henderson , who has always been very active and reliable on rumors related to series such as Call of Duty and Battlefield , and who has already previously dealt with the topic. Although Zombie Chronicles 2 has been in development for years, so far no concrete clue or official confirmation has been provided by Activision , and the leaker now questions the possibility of it coming this year. Not only that: for Henderson it is even unlikely that the DLC could be the prerogative of Black Ops Cold War, but on the contrary it could be moved to the next episode of the series so far never officially revealed and known by the unofficial name of COD Vanguard .
In addition, Henderson is confident that Zombie Chronicles 2 will not be available for free , but will be designed to be continually expanded with new paid content. All this with a view to making the next chapter of Call of Duty attractive for players in the long term, thus pushing them to purchase new content over time through increasingly substantial updates that can generate profits for the company. Just to extend the life cycle of Vanguard as much as possible, Henderson speculates that the zombie-themed expansion will not arrive before mid-2022. As usual, everything must be taken with a grain of salt, not being official confirmation of the existence of Zombie Chronicles for now 2.
For the uninitiated, the first Zombie Chronicles was a Call of Duty Black Ops III DLC released in 2017, which contained several classic maps from the previous chapters of the series in a remastered version. The “sequel” of this DLC should therefore follow the same path, if and when it becomes reality. Meanwhile, the series continues to expand: Season 5 of COD Black Ops Cold War will have an Among Us-inspired mode.
