Nintendo is in the midst of frantic preparations for the release of their new console the Wii U, expected this holiday season. With a large list of already confirmed games for the Wii U, Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 might be another title making its way to the console, this according to leaked scans from Nintendo Magazine found on the DailyJoypad website.
The scans don’t show much to really set it apart from other console versions and neither Nintendo, Activision or developer Treyarch have officially confirmed the game’s existence for the Wii U, but all signs point to an announcement sooner than later. Studio head at Treyarch, Mark Lamia was evasive when asked by GamesIndustry about Black Ops 2 making its way to Wii U. At E3 recently, he said:
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. 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. We’re game developers and it’s a new piece of hardware and technology, so we’re always thinking about that stuff.
With Nintendo also announcing a pro-controller for the Wii U system, this will make first-person shooters a lot more easy to play, which could shift more consoles come launch. Why Nintendo kept so quiet about it at E3 2012 after such a mediocre showing is anyone’s guess. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is due out on November 13 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, we will have to keep are eyes open for any movement on the Wii U front.
