It seems that Activision can’t let go of the last generation of consoles just yet, as they have just announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. Previously the only confirmed editions of the game were for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been designed to harness the full potential of the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC,” reads the announcement by Scott Lowe. “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.”
A few things will obviously be lost in the transition from current to last gen hardware. Aside from the usual visual downgrade, co-op in the single player campaign will at least be limited to two players. Some features are exclusive to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions as well, but those will be announced at a later date.
There also doesn’t seem to be a multiplayer beta coming for PS3 and Xbox 360, with Activision saying “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.”
