Call of Duty: Black Ops III 3 PlayStation 4 PS4 Activision

How's this for an awkward game name? Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles. The awkward title's just been rated by the ESRB, suggesting a release is imminent. But hang on, Call of Duty: WWII was just announced, so what in the name of George A. Romero is this?

Well, it was originally rumoured to be a DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III featuring eight remastered Treyarch co-op maps. Of course, it wouldn't need an ESRB listing if it was purely an expansion, so it looks like the popular zombies mode may be getting its own standalone release?

We'll need to wait for more information from Activision, but our guess is that Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles will be a standalone PlayStation 4 release, available physically and digitally, which will include access to every single zombies map in the Black Ops III thus far – including the aforementioned upcoming remasters.

It makes sense, we suppose. The content's already done, so all the publisher needs to do is pop it in a box with some fancy artwork and it'll pick up some decent sales at the right price. We'll keep you updated as and when we learn more.
