We found out a few months ago that Treyarch wouldn’t be developing the last generation version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Activision later revealed Beenox as the developers for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game. In a press release today Activision revealed that they are dropping campaign on the last generation consoles with the game only including the multiplayer and zombies on the PS3 and Xbox One.
The publisher blamed the “ambitious scope of the 1-4 player co-op Campaign” which couldn’t be faithfully recreated on the old consoles. So instead of giving fans a botched experience, they decided to remove it. When the last generation versions of Black Ops 3 were announced it was supposed to have a two player co-op instead of the four player on the current gen consoles.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 releases on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC on November 6 later this year. The last generation versions will retail for $50 while the current gen and PC versions will sell for $60.
