Reports are surfacing that several retailers across Europe have pushed back the release date for the Wii version of highly anticipated blockbuster, Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Whilst it would appear that neither North America or the United Kingdom are affected, retail chains from France, Norway and Spain have pushed the title back into late November. One of which is, now dating its release for November 26th, and a major Norweigan retail chain pinning a November 19th date.

A suspicious circumstance indeed, with Activision having released an already sturdy first-person shooter in the form of Goldeneye 007 last week. Is the publisher fearing that releasing Bond’s latest outing will affect Wii sales of Treyarch’s Call of Duty entry?
