Activision officially announces Call of Duty: Black Ops III for PS3 and Xbox 360


I don’t know what took them so long, but Activision has officially announced Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 6. In joining the previously-announced PC, PS4, and Xbox One editions of the game, Activision also confirmed the game will not be released for the Wii U.

In development at Beenox and Mercenary Technology, Black Ops III on the previous-generation consoles will substitute four-player cooperative play for two, but otherwise offer the same campaign:

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.

Finally, Activision promised they would reveal more information about Call of Duty: Black Ops III at this year’s E3 Expo. The biggest game convention of the year will open its doors on June 16, but the Call of Duty franchise typically takes center stage at Microsoft’s Press Conference, which is scheduled for Monday, June 15 at 12:30 PM (Eastern Time).
