The official E3 Twitter account has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have a Zombies mode. So far, Activision has been tight-lipped about 2018's Call of Duty game, despite details continuously leaking online.
From an official standpoint, all the publisher has revealed is that the game will be developed by Treyarch and that it'll be the fourth entry in the fan-favorite Black Ops series. An official reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set for next week, so it won't be much longer for some more concrete information, but still, it's not great having news outed from other official organizations.
Today, E3 announced that they'll be having members from Treyarch at their E3 Coliseum showcase to talk about the history of the series. They also teased the future as the announcement asks "What's lurking around the corner of Treyarch's next Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies experience?," thus inadvertently confirming that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will indeed have a Zombies mode, which has been presumed since the game was first announced months ago.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that the popular Zombies mode will be in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Not only has the mode been so popular that it has been included in the past three releases (including WWII and Infinite Warfare) but also developer Treyarch started the whole phenomenon with the inclusion of Nazi Zombies in 2008's Call of Duty: World at War - the precursor to the Black Ops story arc. It's only natural that the studio would want another crack at what they created.
While official details have been light on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, there have been a ton of rumors. The biggest one, which has upset plenty of fans, is that there Black Ops 4 won't have a single-player campaign. Plus, further speculation regarding the game's multiplayer component has suggested that the solo campaign will instead be replaced by a Fortnite-like Battle Royale mode. Sure, rumors have sometimes been contradictory, but one thing has been made very clear so far: Black Ops 4 will wind up altering the Call of Duty formula in a major way. It's sure to be a very exciting time for the most popular franchise in all of gaming.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12, 2018.
