It looks like there may just be some third-party light at the end of the tunnel after all for Nintendo’s Wii U console. After recent disappointments on seeing Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 announced without mention of the Wii U, we have the first glimpse of a possible Wii U release for the next Call of Duty game, which could end up being called Ghosts.
If you have been keeping up with the latest COD rumors, you’ll know that Tesco and Target both recently jumped the gun in a big way, with both retailers providing listings for the unannounced title, along with a Call of Duty Ghosts potential release date of November 5.
At the time when the listings were live, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions were mentioned, as well as the arrival of next-generation versions as well at a later date. The Wii U however, was absent so it’s nice to see rumors suggesting that it could happen after all.
A Spanish retailer by the name of XtraLife has listed the game, claiming that Call of Duty Ghosts on the Wii U will release on November 11 – so a different launch date than other console versions, apparently. Obviously this is by no means confirmed yet, but we would definitely be a little surprised if the Wii U didn’t get a version, considering that Activision brought Black Ops 2 to the Wii U.
Nintendo’s version was arguably the best looking out of the console versions as well, so there really isn’t an excuse for Infinity Ward not to bring out Ghosts on the Wii U, if it really is the name of the next COD title. It’s worth noting that the listing has since been deleted and brings you back to the homepage of the retailer in question.
Is this a sign that the information is true? A full box art scan be seen over at NintendoEverything in the process. If you are a Wii U owner reading this, let us know if you are optimistic about the console’s third-party situation at the moment.
