Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Not Coming To Wii U
You won't be able to drive hovertanks or hoverbikes on Wii U this fall. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games confirmed on Twitter that the game isn't being developed for that console.
Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey said that the decision not to make a Wii U version was handed down by Activision:
Advanced Warfare's first trailer only announced PS4, Xbox One and PC versions. That didn't necessarily mean the game wasn't coming to Wii U, though. The Wii U edition of last year's Call of Duty: Ghosts was announced two months after the game was initially revealed. There was a chance that Advanced Warfare's Wii U version could be confirmed this summer.
Wii U owners were given hope by small clues. The first was a Wii U logo on the game's website. Then there was the mention of a Wii U version on E3's site. These flimsy pieces of evidence were apparently nothing more than clerical errors.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is also in development for PS3 and Xbox 360. Those versions are being handled by Transformers: War for Cybertron creators High Moon Studios.
Activision's other big fall release for the hardcore crowd, Destiny, will be skipping Wii U as well. It seems that the publisher is adopting the same attitude as Take-Two and Ubisoft: they'll support the Wii U with family-oriented games but they feel that hardcore titles don't have a large enough audience on the console to justify the development costs.
