Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 after all

“We’re working on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. That’s all,” Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 developer Treyarch told Eurogamer earlier this year. Sounds pretty definitive, right? Well it turns out that while that’s technically true Treyarch is only working on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC version,black ops 3 will also be released on older hardware. In a post on Activision’s Games Blog, the publisher revealed that developers Beenox and Mercenary Technology are working on versions of black ops 3 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Before last-gen players get too excited, it’s worth noting that Beenox and Mercenary Technology – developers with a long history of porting games for Activision – have made a few concessions to black ops 3 on the older hardware. The campaign mode, multiplayer mode, and zombies mode all make up for it, but co-op play is limited to two players instead of four. Activision also says there will be “some other features and functionality built specifically for the new generation of consoles” missing, as well as the inevitable graphical differences.

Players of the last generation cannot access the upcoming one black ops 3 neither does the multiplayer beta, which will be limited to PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Oh, and no, there’s still no Wii U version.

It’s not entirely surprising that Activision isn’t quite ready to give up on the older consoles just yet CODFISHespecially considering the series’ history and fan base on the Xbox 360. Other publishers haven’t been so nice. Fallout 4 skips the last generation along with Street Fighter V and a slew of first-party releases, including Halo 5, Forza Motorsport 6And Uncharted 4. Still, you can always rely on sports games to fill the last-gen gap: EA continued to release FIFA on PS2 right up to FIFA 14, marking 13 years of support for the console.
