    Fans of the Zombies portion of Treyarch’s Call Of Duty games have often called for a stand alone version of Zombies. Treyarch's Jason Blundell, recently killed any hope of that happening in a recent interview with EuroGamer.
    Blundell clearly stated that Treyarch has absolutely no plans to make Call of Duty Zombies a standalone game. Treyarch prefer to offer multiple modes to allow flexibility and offer fans a choice in game modes.

    “We’ve got to cater for a lot of people,” Jason Blundell, director of campaign and Zombies for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, told Eurogamer.
    “Sometimes you want to watch a movie and want to be engaged narratively on a concept. And then we have multiplayer – sometimes you just want to run around and have that high engagement experience. And sometimes you want to kill the undead – sometimes you want to play Zombies.
    “We see by the numbers and how people engage with the game as a whole, people change that feeling. They’ll move between the different modes.”
    Treyarch announced earlier this year that no longer has different exe files for the three game modes, Campaign,Zombies and Multiplayer.
    Blundell stated: “We’ve made a unified .exe for the first time, which means all three modes run from the same place,” He went on to say:
    “So when you party up, you can move between each one. There’s no unloading the .exe. In previous games you’d see it go to black and then it would come back up again. You can seamlessly move because now all three are online.”

    Blundell explained:
    So there you have it folks... no stand alone zombies, for now at least.
