Call of Duty: Black Ops III confirmed for PS3, Xbox 360

COD-Black-Ops-3_LogoYes, we sorta, kinda expected an announcement like this would rear its ugly head at one point or another, so here it is. After being led to believe that it was a “new gen only” release, Activision has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops III will also be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360.  They also went out of their way to confirm that a Wii U release is definitely not in the cards.

Read on for the blog post, or head on over to the site here.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been designed to harness the full potential of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. However, we know that there are still some fans that haven’t made the transition to the new console hardware, which is why we’re happy to share that we’re working with developers Beenox and Mercenary Technology on Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Xbox 360 and PS3 players will be able to experience Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s gameplay across campaign, multiplayer and zombies. While the teams are working to deliver the best possible experience for Xbox 360 and PS3, naturally there will be some differences across generations. For instance, the campaign mode on Xbox 360 and PS3 is currently in development with a goal of enabling two-player cooperative play, instead of the four-player cooperative campaign on next-gen. There will also be some other features and functionality built specifically for the new generation of consoles that cannot be supported on Xbox 360 and PS3. We’ll be sharing more information regarding feature differences from one console generation to another later this year as launch on November 6 approaches. Also, it should be noted that there’s no version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for Nintendo Wii U planned.

Finally, the upcoming next-gen multiplayer beta will be available only for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC—so keep an eye out for more details.

This is just the beginning for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. There’s a ton more to discuss in the weeks and months to come, starting with E3 next week, which kicks off on June 15th. In the meantime, stay tuned to the Activision Games Blog and follow @Activision and @CallofDuty on Twitter.
