E3insider.com is a site owned and operated by the organizers of the E3 conference itself. They give viewers a backstage pass, so to speak, to all of the highlights of the happenings on the show floor. They commonly list games that will be making an appearance at the conference on the site several days before the show floor opens, complete with a platform listing.
Activision Blizzard has been mum on whether their latest installment of the critically acclaimed Call of Duty franchise would be making its way onto Nintendo’s next generation system, but the landing page for Call of Duty: Ghosts on E3 Insider lists Wii U as one of the release platforms for the game. This may ease the angst many fans of the series were experiencing as the announcements came and went without a single mention of the Wii U, and those fearing more backpedaling on support from the publisher due to lackluster COD: Black Ops II sales.
Given that EA has confirmed they will not be bringing their flagship first person shooter Battlefield 4 to the Wii U it would make even more sense for Activision to continue with their own support, and Call of Duty can enjoy very little competition from other similar games on the platform.
What are your thoughts on this revelation? Will you be looking forward to Ghosts when it launches later this year? Sound off in the comments below.
[UPDATE] It looks as thought the listing for the Wii U platform has been removed. It could be Nintendo wants to announce this game on their own terms. Stay tuned for more information.
