As we near the end of April, here is a new look at what you can expect from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in the rest of the year, even as some attention shifts to Call of Duty 2016.

During a busy fall of video games, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 arrived on PS4, Xbox One and PC to deliver what is arguable the best Call of Duty experience on this latest generation of consoles.

Black Ops 3 combines vertical movement that is a staple of current first person shooters, with special weapons and powers in a well balanced, fun, fast paced game that scratches the itch many gamers had in 2015.

We know part of the plans for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 in 2016 and we’ll also blend in opinion and speculation about where the game will go over the next 3 to 9 so that current players and prospective buyers know what to expect from the game.

Although there is also a PS3 and Xbox 360 Black Ops 3 game, but it does not feature a single player mode, updates are slow and it does not get all the DLC. In short, it’s not a game that most people should buy.

Black Ops 3 Updates & Fixes in 2016

Treyarch is committed to finding and fixing issues in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and to making the game better. While you may not get your every wish, the team behind the game consistently rolls out small, targeted hotfixes and massive updates. 

In April we saw the biggest Black Ops 3 weapons changes in history with over 18 changes to balance weapons, upgrades for scorestreaks, specialist changes and more. 

Instead of letting the game stagnate and letting issues fester Treyarch is great at fixing problems and getting out ahead of the major issues that we run into.

Sure, there are still some lingering issues and problems with lag and unbalanced teams, but the company is clearly working on issues that the community discovers. 

We expect to see Black Ops 3 hotfixes continue to roll out directly to your console at a high-speed and to see bigger Black Ops 3 updates bring in major fixes and changes to keep the game balanced and interesting through the rest of the year.
