Black Ops III launches in November and Activision revealed this week that PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game will not feature a dedicated single player campaign, while current gen versions will feature a brand new story mode to go alongside all the traditional multiplayer modes that the series is famous for.
Let’s be honest, most gamers who buy Call of Duty don’t hand over their money for the single player portion of the game. In fact, many jump straight into the online modes and never touch on single player. At best the single player modes in the series have been used for gamers to work out the new mechanics of the game, almost as a practice platform for the online experience.
It will be interesting to see the sales of Black Ops III on older generation consoles and will provide both Sony and Microsoft a decent indication of how well their previous systems are still doing in the market.
