Activision keen to “add to the appeal” of Wii U
Activision are keen to do whatever they can to “add to the appeal” of Wii U, according to comments made by Eric Hirshberg.
Back in July, the third-party publisher confirmed six games they would be bringing to the platform throughout this year, including Call of Duty: Ghosts, Skylanders SWAP Force, Angry Birds Trilogy, Angry Birds Star Wars, SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton’s Robotic Revenge, and Wipeout Create & Crash.
“I want all of the great games in this industry to succeed because more people will be playing games and that’s better for all of us,” Hirshberg explained to CVG.
“Nintendo has been a great partner for us. It’s had hardware hits and misses in the past, but it has always found ways to remain completely relevant. It has some of the best game-makers in the world, and I wouldn’t count them out.”
Whilst admitting that the Wii U is performing below expectation, he reiterated Activision’s desire to help broaden the system’s appeal.
“Nintendo is a very successful company but obviously having a rough go with the Wii U launch thus far. I’m sure Nintendo and the rest of the industry wanted a different result for the Wii U, but if we can add to the appeal of the platform then we absolutely will.”
