I think read somewhere you always play with 6 characters but, don't take my word for it.

Depends on the scenario. If you are playing one of the rare 4+ character scenarios, you play with 4. Most are 6 character scenarios, and I don't think there are any 2.

Are you talking about other versions of Zombicide? I know modern Zombicide had 4+ missions, but I thought with Invader the Kickstarter campaign said that every mission was built with 6 characters in mind...?

For Black Plague and Green Horde, each had a single “4+” introductory mission intended to teach the game. All other scenarios for both games are intended for 6 survivors.

Forum posts about playing with fewer survivors are very common, coming up every couple of months year after year. But no one has ever come up with a good solution.

These games and their scenarios are designed around a full complement of survivors. Using smaller teams leads to poor game balance.

Doesn't matter-- you play with the number it recommends, unless you want it easier or harder. We could speculate whether there will be a 4 character intro, or a 4, 5, 7, or 8 character mission released on zombicide.com, but the answer to the OP is you use the mission's guidelines and divide among the players.
