No Campaign for COD: Black Ops 3 on Last Gen

While not strictly Xbox One news, still pretty big and will have big reverberations around the gaming world i think. The single player portion of Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game has proven too much for the last generation of consoles.

Treyarch wasn’t building the last-generation versions of Black Ops 3, though it was overseeing them. Beenox and Mercenary Technology had been assigned the unenviable task of making the game work on old technology.

Just months before the game is due to arrive, however, they’ve pulled the plug on those versions getting the campaign mode.

“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,” the company said in a statement.

The Last Generation versions won’t have the weapon paint shop or eSports tools, either. They will, however, get multiplayer and the zombie-filled Shadows of Evil.

With single player gone, they’re also dropping the price to $49.99. (roughly £39.99 I would hope).

What are your thoughts on this? I am shocked it is still quite highly priced, as it means pretty much they only value the campaign at around $10? Which is pretty poor, I know a lot of people only play COD for the online only, with that in mind, they should have made it digital only and dropped the price, they have enough revenue from the next gen versions surely?
