Treyarch’s Director of Development has revealed that the closed alpha phase for the modding tools for Call of Duty: Black Ops III will begin really soon.
As pcdev claimed, the last game for which Treyarch released a map editor was eight years ago (Call of Duty: World at War), and the closed alpha for Black Ops III’s mod tools is right around the corner.
Last time we released our map editor was cod:waw. It has changed a lot in 8 years. Modtools closed alpha is right around the corner. #8^B

Whether this is too little too late remains to be seen. Still, it’s a good thing that Treyarch is going the extra mile and release mod tools for its shooter (watch and learn DICE).
We’ll be sure to let you know when these mod tools are out!
