Still don’t believe that the Wii U may be getting one of the biggest console releases this year? Some more solid evidence has popped up again suggesting that Treyarch’s highly anticipated Black Ops 2 shooter is on the way to the Nintendo Wii U.
If Nintendo and Activision manage to bring out the game around the same time as the console and PC versions launch on November 13, it is going to be a major attraction for gamers who are still on the fence as to whether to invest in Nintendo’s new console.
The Wii U already has one massive game on the way in Assassin’s Creed 3, but it could be joined and perhaps overshadowed by Black Ops 2. LinkedIn is again the culprit for this latest piece of information, with a employee resume revealing that they had been testing the game on Nintendo’s console since May.
If legit, it also looks likely that the Wii U version won’t be too disimilar to other platforms, with ‘multiplayer testing’ on Wii U and PS3 also mentioned in the resume. To refresh your memory, this isn’t the first time that we’ve heard rumors suggesting that the game is headed to Wii U, despite the continued silence from Treyarch and Activision on the subject.
In June we told you that the game had been featured in a Nintendo magazine, suggesting that the Wii U version would have added support for the touchscreen controller, providing a new twist compared to the versions that will release on consoles and PC.
What are Activision waiting for we wonder? It’s clear that the game is coming, but we just hope that it gets a November release with the other platforms, and that content isn’t cut which we’ve already seen on one Wii U title in FIFA 13. Would you pick up a Wii U version of Black Ops 2 ahead of Xbox 360, PS3 and PC?
