Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Won't Find Market On Wii U

Posted by Streex on August 24, 2014 at 9:00 PM

It's been an off-again, on-again deal with rumors on the arrival of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Wii U. Now it seems, the final answer is no. Activision has had success with the franchise on Wii, selling over a million units with each title (over 2M with Call of Duty 3) except for Modern Warfare 3 (740K), but Black Ops II and Ghosts on Wii U could only muster up 240K andd 170K respectively. We can get upset as Nintendo fans, but from a business standpoint it's a very valid move. While Wii U might have a larger install base than Xbox One, owners of that console are usually keen on buying third party games. The current Wii U install base seems more interested in first party titles. Even last-gen consoles will be getting Advanced Warfare, but this makes sense since there are over 80 million PS3 and Xbox 360's out there.

“Current gen is also going to be great - the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms are being developed by the talented team at High Moon Studios. They are committed to bringing an incredible X360 and PS3 Call of Duty game to fans. We've been working closely with those guys to ensure players get an awesome Call of Duty experience on all platforms.” -Sledgehammer

Wait, did he just call last-gen, current-gen?
