Activision has confirmed the exclusion of the presence of zombies in Vita title Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified.
PR rep Dan Amrich said the lack of zombies is for a “decent reason" – in order to prioritize multiplayer.
"That makes sense to me," said Amrich. "This is the first Call of Duty game on Vita, and it needs to deliver on its core strengths—arguably, multiplayer gaming with twin-stick controls in a portable format. That's the core experience, and that simply needs to come first.
"There's always a list of things you want to do and things you need to do, and at the end of the day, realistic goals are the ones that people actually attain,” he added.
“Declassified will offer a Hostiles Mode, which challenges you to defeat waves of enemies, but alas, those enemies are not shambling corpses.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified launches for the Vita alongside Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s console and PC versions on November 13th, 2012.
