Yeah, they still spawn in the wild afaik. There are 'zombie villages' out there in the world, but very rare. I was only ever able to find 1 in our last world.
Speaking of villages, in my exploration of the new world I've come across two floating villages in the middle of the ocean, populated with villagers. Usually the ghost villages are unpopulated, dead, and I can generally figure out where I am by looking at the mcmap. But these two aren't on the map at all (unexplored areas). Maybe they're holdovers from a much earlier seed and decided to get lively? Dunno, but it's fun to find them.
