Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 PC requirements revealed

Treyarch confirms it's only working on PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions - with no comment on other SKUs.

Activision and Treyarch have revealed the PC requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, the information being disclosed as the publisher and developer wish to underline their commitment to the PC version this year.

At the game's full reveal in Santa Monica, Black Ops 3 was shown running on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC - with the latter being shown off with full 4k support.

"There are no 'ports'" Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said at the game's reveal event. "The game is made on multiple platforms, it's the beginning of a new generation and we're showing it to you on all these platforms, to dispel some of the misconceptions about development."

Lamia also confirmed that the studio is only working on PC and current generation versions of Black Ops 3.

"We're working on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. That's it," he added. As for other platforms such as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and - stop smirking at the back - Wii U? We were directed to Activision, which said it had no further platform announcements at this time.

If versions for Nintendo consoles are in development, it would not be the first time that the publisher has left it until later to confirm support for secondary formats.
