Call of Duty Ghosts Officially Hitting Wii U

After months of confirming and denying its existence for some reason, Call of Duty Ghosts has finally been confirmed for Nintendo’s HD console via an Activision press release and Nintendo’s Twitter account.


Coming out on November 5th, the same day as the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC versions, the Wii U version will take advantage of the Gamepad and allows Wii remote aiming like how Black Ops 2 did last year. Treyarch is confirmed to be the developer of this port while Infinity Ward works on the other versions. It is unknown if Wii U owners get the Free Fall map by pre-ordering it, but if it’s anything like Nuketown 2025’s false advertising last year, it is doubtful. 

This isn’t the first time the Nintendo version of a Call of Duty gets announced much later. The Wii/DS version of Modern Warfare 3 and the Wii U’s Black Ops 2 were announced only two months before launch. 

As an owner of Black Ops 2 for Wii U, I’m actually excited with this announcement. I loved the Wii U’s Pro controller for the game, and allowing a friend to play online or zombies with me from the Gamepad was excellent (no kids online either!). I stopped playing it when Activision announced that the game’s DLC would not hit the eShop, so I’m cautious to see if they make a similar business decision with Ghosts.
