Treyarch has confirmed to Eurogamer that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is only in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and there will be no ports this time around. So, that sounds pretty much final. If you want to play the game you’re going to need a PlayStation 4, Xbox One or a decent PC. You can watch the reveal trailer for the game in the video posted above.
“There are no ‘ports'” Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said at the game’s reveal event. “The game is made on multiple platforms, it’s the beginning of a new generation and we’re showing it to you on all these platforms, to dispel some of the misconceptions about development.”
“We’re working on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. That’s it,” he added. As for other platforms such as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and – stop smirking at the back – Wii U? We were directed to Activision, which said it had no further platform announcements at this time.
Update: Here’s the trailer
In may not come as a surprise to many but it doesn’t appear as though Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is coming to the Wii U. The official site for the game specifies that the popular first person shooter series is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. It is disappointing as the last Black Ops title was well-received by Wii U owners, but the latest edition will most likely be skipping the platform this time around. The official trailer for the game is due to be released later today.
New details have emerged about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 via the source code of the official Call of Duty website. We now know that Zombies are back which isn’t a huge surprise, but it will certainly please the fans. The site also says that Black Ops 3 will take place in a dark and twisted future where military robotics are the core of warfare. Treyarch also mentioned that “Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series.”
- Zombies mode is coming back. This isn’t a huge surprise, considering both previous Black Ops games included the undead. Still, it’s an excellent additional mode that gives players something to do aside from multiplayer.
- Black Ops 3 takes place in a “dark, twisted” future where the lines between humanity and our technology are blurred. Military robotics are the core of warfare.
“Black Ops 3 is the first title for next-gen hardware in the critically acclaimed Black Ops series. Developed by Treyarch, the award-winning creator of the two most-played games in Call of Duty history. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 deploys players into a dark, twisted future where a new breed of Black Ops soldier emerges and the lines are blurred between our own humanity and the technology we created to stay ahead, in a world where cutting-edge military robotics define warfare. With three unique game modes: Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies, providing fans with the deepest and most ambitious Call of Duty ever.”
We know that Call of Duty: Black Op 3 is coming thanks to a teaser trailer which was released yesterday. What we don’t know is whether it will come to Wii U. Interestingly a NeoGAF member has discovered that you can now link your Call of Duty account to your Nintendo Network ID on the Call of Duty website. It’s a new addition and could possibly mean that Treyarch will bring the game across to Wii U. However, we all know that the last Call of Duty game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare skipped the platform. Let’s hope that’s not the case this year.
We all knew it was coming and now it seems pretty much official that the next Call of Duty title will be Black Ops 3. Activision has just released the teaser video which you can watch above that’s filled with cryptic phrases. At the end of the trailer it says that the worldwide reveal will be showcased on April 26th. Guess we will get our first look at the in-game footage then.
The multiplayer maps that are found within Black Ops 2 have been updated with new Snapchat QR codes that you can scan with your phone. If you come across one of the Snapchat QR codes be sure to scan it with your phone, if you do so you’ll be greeted with the following message “listen only to the sound of my voice…”. Sounds like a marketing campaign for the unannounced Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
We all know just how popular the Call of Duty series has been. Analysts have said that sales have recently been on the decline, but there’s still no denying it’s an incredibly popular series worldwide. Activision has announced that the Call of Duty franchise has sold over 175 million units which equates to around one copy sold every two seconds. You really can’t argue with that.
