Sledgehammer Games Studio Head Glen Schofield is back and teasing Call of Duty: WW2‘s Zombie Mode again. A new post Schofield shared on Twitter features a screenshot of bloody flesh surrounding some sort of metallic object. Whatever is going on, Schofield won’t say, but he is absolutely clear that this is about Call of Duty‘s new Zombies and that fans can get more information on July 20.
This isn’t the first Zombies tease from Sledgehammer and it likely isn’t the last. Less than a week ago, Schofield also dropped the first teaser for the July 20 reveal, featuring a nasty looking zombie face to wearing some sort of unconventional metal face cover or helmet. Both that image and today’s image have mysterious details about them, but considering nobody knows exactly what to expect from Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty: WW2 there’s nothing to do but speculate.
The one hint that Schofield has provided so far is a continued comparison to the original Dead Space. When fans ask Schofield if the mode is fun, he then asks, “Did you like Dead Space?”
But considering Dead Space is set in a space station where most of the humans have been turned into monstrous creatures, it’s unclear what the connection might be. So which part is the Sledgehammer dev trying to tie to Call of Duty: WW2‘s Zombie Mode: a space station, humans turning into terrible monstrosities, or maybe third-person shooter?

Activision and Sledgehammer have also been running an ARG related to Call of Duty: WW2‘s Zombie Mode. Thus far fans have seen a photo of a Roman emperor and a painting by Italian artist Raphael that was stolen by the Nazis, as well as coordinates pointing to Dunkirk. Once again it’s unclear how all of these things and Dead Space come together, but we do know that Zombies offers a co-op mode with a “unique storyline.”
While certainly different than what Call of Duty has done with Zombies in the past, it’s probably best to just assume it’ll deliver that same incredibly fun experience that fans expect. Here is Schofield’s latest response with regards to just how much like Dead Space the new Zombie Mode really is:
“Zombies is its own thing but with a similar sick, twisted vibe. The world is definitely in its own dark place. Very dark. Fun as hell tho.”
Call of Duty: WW2 releases November 3, 2017 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
