Is it coming, or not?
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 was recently announced for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but there was a bit of a shock for Nintendo players- after pre-reveal speculation that the game would be coming to the Wii U as well, a Wii U version was nowhere in sight, and Activision refused to talk about it.
Even later, when versions of the game for the last gen Xbox 360 and PS3 began to be leaked, a Wii U version was nowhere to be found, leading many to conclude that the speculation had all been wrong, and that, for the secind year running, the Call of Duty series would be skipping Nintendo’s console.
Not so fast, though- when Activision was asked about the possibility of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 coming to Wii U later this year on Twitter, Activision did not shoot the idea down, nor did they give the usual non-answer that they have been giving so far. Instead, they asked Wii U owners to ‘stay tuned,’ for more information.
Of course, this might just be truncated PR speak, but given that Treyarch Call of Duty games always release on Nintendo hardware, and that they also always get announced later than the other versions, it is not unreasonable to suppose, as of right now, that the game might launch on Nintendo’s console later this year after all.
