Call Of Duty Can’t Cut The Last-Gen Cord

Call Of Duty Can’t Cut The Last-Gen Cord

Unlike other big series like Assassin’s Creed and Fallout, Call of Duty can’t bring itself to go 100% next-gen just yet, Activision announcing today that this year’s Black Ops 3 will be available not just on PS4, XB1 and PC, but PS3 and Xbox 360 as well.

The last-gen version will be worked on by two other studios (Beenox and Mercenary Technology), will feature only two-player co-op (instead of the PS4/XB1’s four-player) and “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”.

It may also shock you to hear that “there’s no version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for Nintendo Wii U planned”.

It would be easy to criticise this move, assuming things like the need to account for last-gen versions will hold the next-gen versions back in terms of design and scale. But hey, who knows; the 360/PS3 version might be so scaled back that it’s practically a different game.
