Activision Really Seems to Be Working on Call of Duty for the Wii U

By   /   4 years ago


While we already reported on Black Ops II’s untimely Wii U leak, Activision nor Nintendo has confirmed this to be true.

In saying that, while Activision hasn’t outright confirmed it, what they’re saying now really, really implies that the Wii U will be getting its own version of Black Ops II…thought they haven’t outright said it.

In an interview with GamesIndustry, both Activision publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg and Treyarch studio boss Mark Lamia gave very “interesting” answers when pressed for the game’s existence on the Wii U.

Hirshberg didn’t acknowledge it, other than saying they’re “supporting” the Wii U and how they’re “looking” in to second screen support.

We take out time to get our ducks in a row before pulling any trigger. We don’t have announcements today but we will be supporting Wii U

People are using it as that sidecar as they’re playing… People are using it in that between games way that I think now you’re seeing that kind of rhetoric with the controller from Nintendo as well as the SmartGlass presentation from Microsoft. So it’s great that others are jumping on board and enhancing that idea but it’s something we were doing last year with Elite.

While that was a bit vague, Lamia’s answer all but confirmed that Black Ops II is indeed coming to Nintendo’s upcoming console.

We obviously have been a Nintendo developer for many years and have created many Call of Duty games on the Nintendo platform. [Wii U] is clearly a more powerful platform than its predecessor and… they have obviously a unique controller and interface…And they announced a Pro Controller which appears to be a controller that would be really good for first person shooter games.

It just so happens that’s what we specialize in. So that’s an interesting development and then they have that touch display device and you think about the kinds of things you might be able to do and – without getting into specifics – I absolutely have given it consideration and thought.

It’s difficult to say because it’s something we’re not talking about. I’m intentionally being elusive because we’re not talking about it!”

Yeah, I’ve highlighted that last statement by Lamia, just in case it wasn’t heavy-handed enough. Given these answers, I’m guessing Black Ops 2 for the Wii U is almost a sure thing, no? At least until they finally announce it officially.
