Call of Duty Zombies Director Jason Blundell Departs Treyarch After 13 Years
Long time Call of Duty series veteran and creator of the popular Call of Duty Zombies mode Jason Blundell has departed Treyarch, he and the company have announced over the weekend.
In a statement released via Treyarch's official Twitter account, Blundell wanted to "personally thank" the Zombies community for his tenure at the company, saying "Your passion, enthusiasm - and frankly, your craziness - has been a continued source of inspiration" and that "These are memories that I will cherish for a lifetime."
Blundell was at Treyarch for 13 years and first started working on the then-titled Nazi Zombies mode on Call of Duty: World at War, and became a co-studio head in 2016 after also having high profile roles on the Black Ops series including Executive Producer and Game Design Director.
There's no word yet from Blundell on where he's off to next, and as of right now Activision are yet to confirm rumours that 2020's Call of Duty will be Black Ops 5 which, if still true, will be the first in the Black Ops sub series without Blundell's input. Understandble though, as Activision are still busy with the ongoing success of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which may or may not be getting a standalone Battle Royale mode later this month.
We wish to thank Jason for his many contributions to Treyarch. We’ve enjoyed our journey together and wish him the very best going forward! pic.twitter.com/Tb8o36VWb2— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) February 28, 2020
