Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is slated for a November 6 release and for those who don’t know, it’s a Friday. While the majority of us didn’t pay any attention as to why this game is releasing on a Friday, Activision has decided to explain the reason behind it anyway.
According to Activision, they wanted to allow more players to buy the game and play it through the weekend, think of it as a weekend celebration. Of course, it makes sense as it’s a weekend, people are free and want to kill-time, have fun and what better way to do that other than some Call of Duty action?
We thought it would be really fun for the fans to kick-off Black Ops 3 on a weekend. The Black Ops series is the most played in Call of Duty history with nearly 100 million players to date. With Black Ops 3, the team at Treyarch is really taking things to a new level. There’s so much in this game across every mode of play.
They further explained to us that this year’s installment will feature new ideas and depth in its multiplayer modes.
Campaign has been reimagined and can now be played cooperatively with your friends. Zombies, of course, are back. And multiplayer is bringing a ton of depth and new ideas to the experience. So giving fans as much time as possible out of the gate to experience all the game has to offer just made a lot of sense.
Activision didn’t say if the Friday release is something they plan on continuing with future Call of Duty titles. They believe it depends on the game and what’s best for it.
As a reminder, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is scheduled for a November 6 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. For all things Call of Duty, stay-tuned to Segmentnext or follow us on Twitter.
