Call of Duty fans who have not yet upgraded their consoles can rest easy. Publisher Activision recently announced that the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
In a blog post on the Activision website, Social Media director Scott Lowe wrote "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."
The post then goes on to highlight the differences one would expect to see between the older consoles and their newer generation counterparts. "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."
Lowe also notes that there is no Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 planned.
In addition, it was recently announced that Black Ops 3 will feature the likeness of Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch will be the first athlete to appear in a Call of Duty game.
"I've been in the Super Bowl, movies, music videos, Madden. But to have your own character in Duty is, I mean, it's almost like you arrived."
