Intrigue and ambiguity have taken center stage in discussions regarding the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on last-generation consoles.
The gaming community was thrown into speculation mode on August 10 when a tweet hinted at the potential absence of Modern Warfare 3 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One systems.
The heart of this conjecture can be traced back to an enigmatic listing on the Xbox website for Modern Warfare 3. The listing exclusively mentioned the game’s launch on Xbox Series X/S systems while intriguingly leaving out any reference to the prior generation consoles.
But as with any mystery, there is more than meets the eye. The intrigue deepened as villainous Makarov returns to his vengeful schemes in the official Modern Warfare III trailer showcased on PlayStation’s YouTube channel. The trailer title explicitly declared the game’s launch on the PS5 and PS4 systems.
Adding to the puzzle, rating boards, including the influential ESRB  responsible for North America, have yet to allocate a rating for Modern Warfare 3’s anticipated release later this year. With roughly three months remaining until the game’s scheduled launch on November 10, the absence of an official rating appears less startling.

One plausible explanation could be a lack of updated information flowing from publisher Activision or developer Sledgehammer Games to the platform holders. This information gap might contribute to the prevailing confusion about which consoles will host the game’s last-gen version.
For a promising twist, enthusiasts can anticipate more revelations about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on August 17. An eagerly awaited in-game event in Warzone 2 promises an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming sequel, raising expectations for a clearer understanding of the enigmatic release platforms for this highly anticipated title.
