With games becoming increasingly big, both in terms of size and requirements, the last generation of consoles are battling to keep up with the demand. It seems that the old hardware has finally hit its end as the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops III will not come with any single player campaign for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when the game launches in November.
This is due to the hardware restrictions that now plague the older hardware. Treyarch broke new news on their forum:
The Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will feature Multiplayer and Zombies gameplay only, not Campaign. The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.
Treyarch however stressed the fact that PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will still be experiencing the best multiplayer game modes and Zombie mode yet:
Delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority. With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience of Black Ops 3 multiplayer, including the new momentum-based, chain-movement system, as well as the all-new Specialist class of 9 Black Ops soldiers, which fundamentally change the way players engage in combat.
By the looks of things it seems that PS3 and Xbox 360 will not be receiving another Call of Duty title after this one, so best upgrade soon and avoid missing out on next year’s entry, whatever it is going to be. Call of Duty: Black Ops III releases on 6 November 2015 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
