Black Ops III Will Not Have a Single-Player Campaign for Xbox 360/PS3

    It appears as though the next-gen push has started. The Call of Duty blog recently stated that Call of Duty: Black Ops III, which is set to be released on November 6th, 2015; will not have a single-player campaign for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Treyarch, the developers of Black Ops III, claimed that their reasoning behind this is simply that the older consoles can't run the campaign "faithfully." The campaign is made for one-to-four players in co-op mode, and the hardware on the older consoles can't process everything that will be happening at once.

    This is sure to spark outrage among many Call of Duty fans throughout the community. This was almost expected by some, myself included, due to the consoles being almost a decade old now. (The Xbox 360 being released on November 22, 2005, and the PlayStation 3 being released on November 11, 2006.) It was also noted that fans will not have access to the eSports tools, or the new Weapon Paint Shop on the 360/PS3. This leaves the last gen players with only the multiplayer and zombies features of the game to play.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.99, and will contain a bonus code for the digital download of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the game that made Call of Duty what it is today. Though the price may be lower than other Call of Duty releases in the past, is it worth the money to purchase the game, with so many key selling points being left out?

      As much as I agreed with that first part, nobody's telling you to upgrade just for CoD. The whole point of upgrading is there are going to be more and more games this will be happening to. Just like how it happened to PS2 games after the PS3 release. The PS3 is 9 years old, the 360 10 years. The consoles are old now, just like the PS2 was old in '09.

      i got all those as well lol. I don't even play CoD anymore but if you're not on next gen you're doing something wrong. Gears of War is out, Battlefront, Fallout 4, and Halo 5 is coming as well. Plus xbox one and ps4 have been out for 2 years almost

      Yeah I know. Just think when the 360 was 2 years old there were games like Left 4 Dead being released, CoD WaW, Mirror's Edge which everybody was saying was revolutionary. All of the fans knew that these games wouldn't of been possible on the Original Xbox. So why does everybody assume that the Xbone and 360 should be running the same games? It's stupidity.

    I'm surprised they're even releasing on last-gen. It's good because it gives the competitive players a chance to keep their skills sharpened whilst waiting to upgrade.

      I wish they would just cancel it. Because with clan wars, it jacks everything up like it did in Advanced Warfare.

    They are just trying people to move to next gen. They know old gen would at least be able to handle 2 player. If battlefield 4 can handle 24 people at a solid 30 fps bo3 can handle 4, or even 2.

      I'm starting to think a lot of people have just commented without reading the article. It has nothing to do with Multiplayer of other games. It has nothing to do with them wanting you to move to next gen. It has to do with the limitations that the console has. They added new AI that can't be done on the console at a reliable rate.

    If there is no campaign theres no point in making it for 360/ps3 and cant transfer level

      DoX Hoster that makes no sense, because the multiplayer is still on there, and can be modded all the same
    3. DoX Hoster
      ya but if there is no stats transfering then how are they to mod the xbox one leaderboards.
    4. melvyn95
      I dont think any one cares about the leaderboard also in multiplayer its going to be limited due to the old hardware
  9. chamba
    Why woud they do that? well we move on now, thanks

    I only play the campaigns of call of duty nowadays. I just beat it on veteran then deleted it off my hard drive for the xkey.
