Black Ops fans around the world have been waiting for today’s news out of publisher Activision and game developer Treyarch for the last three years.  On Friday, November 6, 2015, fans will finally be able to go on a journey to the dark, twisted and gritty world of the next game in the Black Ops franchise with a true next generation experience that will attempt to redefine Call of Duty.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will deliver a campaign that can be played as a full single player game or co-op online with up to four players.  Boasting the deepest, most rewarding multiplayer ever offered in Call of Duty, along with a mind blowing Call of Duty Zombies experience that, for the first time, features its own XP progression system, fans will experience a game that has been built from the ground up to be fast, action-packed and offer enough weapons to outfit and entire army.

“Nearly 100 million people have played Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty: Black Ops II, making it the most-played series in Call of Duty history.  And those fans are about to get the best Black Ops game we’ve made yet with Call of Duty: Black Ops III,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision.  “This is Treyarch’s first three year development and man, have they made the most of it; with a ton of innovation across all modes of play, and of course a mind bending, wild ride of a story, Black Ops style.  Our fans will get a taste for themselves with a Beta later this year.  But for now, Black Ops is back.”

If you were hoping to maybe get an early taste of what Call of Duty: Black Ops III will have to offer then you just might be in luck.  Activision and Treyarch also announced for the first time on Call of Duty next gen – a multiplayer Beta for Call of Duty: Black Ops III.  Fans who pre-order the game now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC will get access to the Beta.  At this point in time, actual platform availability and launch date(s) haven’t been announced but if you want to get more info, check out for more details and to redeem your Beta Access code.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III is currently in development for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and PC.
