Call of Duty Black Ops 3 is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC courtesy of Treyarch. Also, Activision is working with a different studio to bring the game to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
While I think at this point AAA games should say their goodbyes to last-gen consoles, there is massive audience who still hasn’t made the jump into next-gen.
The side effect of releasing big games on outdated hardware is that it may holdback the game in terms of features, gameplay etc. So when someone thinks Black Ops 3 may suffer due to last-gen versions, his/her concerns are genuine.
One of the fans raised this issue over at Twitter and asked David Vonderhaar about it. Vonderhaar assured us that last-gen versions of Black Ops 3 won’t have any affect on PS4, Xbox One or PC versions.
@MarcoCuesta1 You don't have to hope. It doesn't. We are making the game for this gen; I don't even have last gen dev kits anymore.

Similar were the concerns when Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was announced, but the game turned to be a notable entry into the series.
However, each installment is expected to be bigger and better than the last. I highly doubt Call of Duty 2017 will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
