Activision is Releasing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on Last Gen Consoles

Only the dead have seen the end of war.

As more and more development companies are starting to only release newer titles on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Activision has decided to take pity on those who still haven’t transitioned onto the newer consoles.

Activision’s Communications Manager, Scott Lowe, announced via the Activision Games Blog, that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be released on Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3. The game will launch with less features than that of the newer console’s, but will still include the game’s campaign, multiplayer, and zombie mode. Lowe revealed that the older console’s campaign will only include two-player cooperative play, whereas the newer generation’s consoles will include four player cooperative play.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been designed to harness the full potential of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC,” Lowe said, “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.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is currently slated for launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this November 6. It has also been announced that the title is currently not planned for release on the Wii U.
