This year's Call of Duty is skipping the Wii U, developer Sledgehammer Games confirmed today.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was announced in May for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions confirmed later. Sledgehammer Games is focusing its efforts on developing the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions, with an unconfirmed studio handling development on previous generation platforms.
Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey said today that there won't be a Wii U version of the game, which he explained on Twitter was "an Activision decision."
In previous years, Activision confirmed Call of Duty games for Nintendo platforms well after announcing each year's entry. The Wii version of Modern Warfare 3 was announced in Aug. 2011, months after other versions were revealed. The following year, Wii U owners waited until September for confirmation of Black Ops 2. Last year's Call of Duty: Ghosts didn't have its Wii U version confirmed until July.
