The developers have revealed this information via their Twitter feed. A new, zombie-centered mode is incoming, but it will not include any Artificial Intelligence that would control the undead. Instead, it will be the players acting as zombies.
The company’s community managers wanted to emphasize that the fact that a new mode is coming to the game does not mean that they will stop optimizing the game for better performance.
There is no date set for the mode so really anything can happen.
