Bethesda’s recent announcement that Fallout 4 will not be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 certainly made a lot of gamers sad, particularly those who have not upgraded their consoles just yet, but they’ll certainly be happy with what Activision has announced today. The publisher just confirmed Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360, it had originally announced the title for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC.
It merits mentioning here though that Treyarch will not be handling the PS3/Xbox 360 port. Instead two studios, Beenox and Mercenary Technology, are tasked with bringing Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to these consoles.
Much of the same content will be available across the two versions of Black Ops 3 but there will be some major changes too. The four player op-op campaign announced for PS4 and Xbox One will be limited to just two players on the previous-gen consoles.
Without going into specifics, Activision says that some other features and functionality that has been built specifically for the new generation of consoles will not be available since they can’t be supported by the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
It’s bad news for Nintendo fans though because Activision has confirmed that there will be no version of Black Ops 3 for Nintendo Wii U, at least one isn’t planned for now.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is expected to launch across all supported platforms come November 6th.
