Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch on Wii U alongside the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC versions of the game, the game's official Twitter account just confirmed.
Last month, executive producer Mark Rubin confirmed that the title was coming to Nintendo's platform, but didn't provide specifics regarding the game's release date or how the Wii U GamePad would be utilized in-game.
"Right now we've only announced current-gen and PC, [which will release on] Nov. 5," Rubin said in June. "[Wii U] is probably in the next-gen bin. We're not actually talking about Wii U yet because we want to keep it mysterious."
A press release published by Activision minutes ago mentions the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts "includes Wii Remote and second-screen Wii U GamePad support and more." We've reached out to Activision to find out more about the port, specifically how it will utilize the Wii U's unique controller.
Update: The official Twitter account for Treyarch has confirmed that the studio is working on the Wii U port of Call of Duty: Ghosts.

It's not Treyarch's first time developing a port of one of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty titles. In 2011, Treyarch developed the Wii version of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The studio also developed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Reflex Edition for Nintendo's motion-controlled platform.
