Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is Coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

Check out the first details on the last-gen version, launching on November 6.

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

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. Also, it should be noted that there's no version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for Nintendo Wii U planned.

Finally, 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.

This is just the beginning for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. There’s a ton more to discuss in the weeks and months to come, starting with E3 next week, which kicks off on June 15th. In the meantime, stay tuned to the Activision Games Blog and follow @Activision and @CallofDuty on Twitter.

God Help Us. If these developers are anything like High Moon Studios, those who are on the PS3 or Xbox360 are really going to be screwed...

Level 1

Why no Wii U? Have Nintendo customers got the pest? Id LOVE to know why we arent getting COD anymore? Seems like Activision doesnt want any money from Nintendo customers.....

Level 1

At least they are getting COD Wii U gets NOTHING anymore !

Tried to pre order The Black Ops III thru the play station store and it sold me Black Ops II. I already own Black Ops II on Disc. Now I am trying to find someone who can credit my play station wallet.... errrr

Level 1

Seriously? I hope the man at the store was right about the 360 and PS3 versions being completely rebuilt. This game better harness the full potential of my Xbox One or I'm going to be very disappointed...

Es un Muy buen Juego, esperemos que llegue para todas las plataformas y se pueda disfrutar del juego.

The Wii U is new console hardware, and I have made the transition. Please make a Wii U version.

I read some where else that there wasn't going to be a multiplayer for xbox 360 and ps3 version i hope its not true or its going to be pointless in buying it for 360 thats why people buy cod games for multiplayer not just campaine your trying hard to push peopke to xbox one and ps4 you can't squeeze blood out of a turnip if you want them to go to the newr generation consoles buy some and give them away because thats why alot of people haven't switched to xbox one and ps4 they are financially strapped period im sure they would love to have one

Level 1

Will multiplayer be the same for Xbox 360 will THERE be all specialists is Xbox 360 gonna have same dlc same maps will gunsmith be the same please tell me that it won't suck

Level 1

Still nothing planned for the Wii U? I'm still hanging onto the slim hope you guys release it on the Wii U. There is only so much Black Ops 2 one can play.

Boy, this is a HELL of a way to treat your loyal Wii U customers! I've bought ALL of the COD's ! And now you guys are going to screw us over? Maybe it's time to move to U Play games. At least they appreciate their customers!!!!!!!!

Why ? Why ? Activision enjoy every cod on my wii

i like motion plus on my wii and gamepad play on wii u

please realease this on wii u, listen to your customer...!!!!

i hope there will be map packs and stuff u can buy for bo3 on ps3 bc if not ill be disappointed!

im really looking forward to this game.

they should just make it all the same ps3 ps4 and xbox whats the diff there still makeing money

Level 1

THIS IS OUTRAGOUS THAT FOCUS ISNT EQUALLY ON 360 and PS3 AS IS IS TO 1 and 4 I SAY BLACK OPS ORIGINALLY STARTED AS A 360 and 3 GAME SO IT SHOULD STAY THAT WAY THEOUGH OUT AND PAYING EQUALL ATTENTION TO NEW GEN
