Treyarch Explains Why Campaign Was Dropped on Last Generation Consoles
In the latest issue of The Official Xbox Magazine, campaign director Jason Blundell explained why the last generation versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops III does not have the campaign. The main reason is the lack of memory on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the full quote below better explains it.
Let’s imagine I have my customised weapon and I’ve made it with a stock and all this extended mag and so forth. For you as a co-op player to see what weapon I have, you have to have loaded in the memory – in resident memory – every single weapon customisation. Current-gen memory just can’t do that. You’d have to have everything loaded otherwise you just can’t see what I’m carrying. You know you could simplify things down, but I think [Activision] made the right choice because I would hate for people to get an experience that wasn’t true to the vision of it.
