Technically NO. Survival mode is MW3's take on the mode however. It has infinite rounds, like IIIARC's Nazi Zombies mode, weapons available for purchase, and perks available for purchase. It is essentially a SPIRITUAL successor. All "zombie" modes take place on the MP maps, with take advantage of using minimal coding and allowing IW to give players more bang for their buck (costing LESS), instead of IIIARC's policy of 4 MP maps, and a zombie map. Since Survival mode is basically an experiment (like New Super Mario Bro.'s DemoPlay) and in a "prenatal" form it should not be expected of IW to make such huge advances for a new feature when they are continuing and and concluding an epic storyline and adding groundbreaking new features to the ever lauded Call of Duty multiplayer feature.
