Despite never once discussing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare coming to Wii U, developer Sledgehammer Games confirmed that Nintendo’s current home console will be Call of Duty–less this year.
According to studio co-founder Michael Condrey, who responded to a fan inquiry about whether there’ll be a Wii U version this year, its absence on Nintendo’s platform was “an Activision decision.” Sledgehammer, Condrey emphasized, is “focused on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.”
Former Transformers and Deadpool developer High Moon Studios, meanwhile, is handling the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Advanced Warfare.
Until now there’s been absolutely no mention or talk of a Wii U version of this year’s Call of Duty. Considering Sledgehammer’s repeated mentioning of next-gen consoles as lead development platforms, its exclusion seemed obvious. Then again, confirmation of Ghosts on Wii Udidn’t arrive until about this time last year.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches across Windows PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 November 4.
