In addition, fan-favorite studio Treyarch are also lending a hand in the development of Modern Warfare 3.

Treyarch are well known for their work on the Black Ops series, including the classic Zombies mode. Naturally, fans have started to wonder if any Treyarch staples would make their way to Modern Warfare 3.
