Call of Duty: Mobile set to remove popular Zombies game mode

Call of Duty: Mobile has confirmed that Zombies mode will be removed from the game as of March 25, on account of the game's creators finding it to be lacking in quality.  We had always mentioned it was limited but with no explicit end-date. We wanted to see the reception, see the feedback, and see how we can potentially shape the mode for the future. However, the mode just didn't reach the level of quality that we desire," developer Timi Studios wrote in a recent community update. Additionally, the studio will also not release Nacht Der Untoten, the second zombie's mode map it had been working on, globally. "We may bring the mode back, with Nacht Der Untoten, once we can make sure it is high enough quality," said Timi.

But a study of stock performances beneath the surface shows the extent of investor wealth destruction in the past years. Many companies such as Cox & Kings, McLeod Russel India, Reliance ADAG companies, Dewan Housing Finance, Indiabulls Housing Finance, Jet Airways (India), Reliance power, among others have lost 78-99 percent in value, making them the biggest wealth destroyers in this period.
