Activision has finally confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming to last-gen consoles.
While it’s been known for quite a long time that Black Ops 3 will be coming to the latest hardware, some had begun to settle on the idea of the game not coming to Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. However, today Activision has confirmed that it will be available on those systems this November, which isn’t a complete surprise considering there’s still a reasonable sized market there. Some will find this news disappointment in the belief that it will hold current hardware back, but Activision promises that Black Ops 3 will still ‘harness the full potential of the Xbox One, PS4 and PC’.
While out at the same time, the last-gen version will be developed by Beenox and Mercenary Technology. There will be some differences, such as two-player co-op campaign rather than four, and the beta won’t be available on last-gen systems. More details on the differences will be revealed later on and Activision has confirmed that a Wii U version isn’t planned.
Black Ops 3 is due to launch worldwide on Friday, 6th November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. E3 attendees will be able to go hands-on with multiplayer next week, while a public beta is scheduled for sometime before launch.
