It has been a mystery for a number of months, with plenty of ‘will it or won’t it’ rumors in between. Finally though, we are pleased to confirm that the Nintendo Wii U will get a version of Call of Duty Ghosts after all, with Activision announcing the news at last in a statement this week.
While this will be deemed as amazing news for Wii U owners who bought and loved Black Ops 2 on the system, others may be a little surprised that Activision has decided to support the Wii U once again after ‘debatable’ sales for Black Ops 2. It’s a stark contrast from EA who have decided to shut up shop completely on the Wii U – so well done to Activision on this occasion.
The publisher has confirmed that COD: Ghosts on the Wii U will also release alongside the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions on November 5 – and it will also be coming with off-TV support for the Wii U GamePad as well which is great. Activision publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg has said that they are doing ‘everything they can to support the Wii U’, so hopefully this is a nice indication that future COD titles will also be coming to Nintendo’s system.
If only EA had the same stance and were bringing a Wii U version of Battlefield 4 to the table. It would be great to change the company’s current image and at least give an indication that they want the Wii U to succeed as well in the third-party area.
So there we have it – Wii U is definitely getting a COD Ghosts release. Will you be buying it on Wii U now instead of other platforms? Black Ops 2 on Wii U is still arguably the best version, despite the low server count.
