Activision and Sledgehammer Games have confirmed what we had come to suspect: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not launch on Wii U. Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey made the confirmation on Twitter noting that it was Activision’s decision not to pursue a Wii U version.
“no, no WiiU. That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC.”
Sledgehammer Games is hard at work on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, while High Moon Studios is responsible for porting the game to PS3 and Xbox 360. Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts both launched on Wii U, but sales for both versions were considered low.
This news is another crippling blow to Wii U third-party support considering it was only yesterday that Ubisoft confirmed that Watch Dogs will be the last M-Rated game they’ll publish on the platform. While Activision isn’t fully abandoning with Wii U (Skylanders: Trap Team is still coming), it does look like they’ll be following in Ubisoft’s footsteps.
