The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIwill not feature the campaign, Activision has revealed.

Posting on the official Call of Duty website, a statement read: “Call of Duty: Black Ops III is a truly next-generation experience designed from day one to harness the full potential of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Black Ops III pushes the boundaries of the franchise to new levels across all modes of play on next generation hardware.

“As we announced back in June, we know that there are still fans waiting to make the switch to the newest console hardware and developers Beenox and Mercenary Technology have been working tirelessly to bring as much of the Black Ops III gameplay as possible to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“The Black Ops III 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.”

Also missing from the last-generation versions are the new Weapon Paint Shop and the new suite of eSports tools.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is expected to launch on all platforms on Friday, November 6th, 2015.
