Treyarch community lead Josh Olin feels that the game market is not saturated with zombies.

In fact, he says he could “play zombies for the rest of time.”

While promoting the upcoming Call of Duty: World at War map pack in a Giant Bomb podcast, Olin talked about his insatiable love for the undead and why it goes so well with the WWII setting.

“Out of fear of showing my zombie nerd-ism I will contend that zombies aren’t saturated at all. I could play zombies for the rest of time,” he said.

“But people thought that about the World War II genre, right — that that was saturated? And I think that with World at War at least our hope was that we would come out with something that was new and different that people haven’t been used to playing before.

“Hopefully that’s been proven by the success of these map packs.”

Long live zombies.
