Call of Duty: Ghosts releasing on Wii U to help console momentum
By In News, Wii U Published on August 20th, 2013

Activision are delivering a Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts in an effort to help Nintendo build momentum behind the console.

That’s according to Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, who reveals that if the console becomes a success then it will prove just as great for their own business as well as the Japanese giant.

“The driving force behind us bringing Ghosts to the Wii U is the same as every other platform, it’s just we want to do everything we can to make the first-party successful,” Hirshberg explained to Joystiq.

He continued, “Obviously if they’re successful, that’s good for our business, that’s been our strategy in the past, we’ve been a very kind of platform agnostic company. We generally try to be wherever our gamers want to play. So we thought if our content can help the Wii U and Nintendo gain some momentum, then we wanted to do that.”

Alex's early adoration for Nintendo began with a Yellow Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land. This developed over the years, later peaking when he hid in his room to play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time one Christmas. Nowadays, his enthusiasm is shared through Nintendo Insider, a place in which he can document his thoughts regarding the big N.

  1. I hope that the Wii U version will be just like the other console versions by receiving DLC as it becomes available for the other consoles. I loved Black Ops II for the Wii U, but I was extremely disappointed when it never received any DLC.
