Call of Duty: Ghosts. If this and other Activision games sell big on Wii U, then what next?

Some people are not happy, why? Because they simply like to find something to moan at when the words Call of Duty are spoken. It’s official, after the cloak and dagger treatment the Wii U was eventually confirmed as a platform that will see this years iteration of Call of Duty. An iteration that has had it’s biggest overhaul since Modern Warfare. Dogs, smart fish and GI Jane/s. Oh and Sub-D! Sounds like a dodgy name for a 1990’s hip hop group. But it makes circles really round (when focused in/gun optics and such) apparently.

In a recent interview with Joystiq Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg spoke candidly about the Call of Duty franchise and how Activision are doing everything they can to help Nintendo and the Wii U gain some momentum, (may I counter that, see video @4:01) and simply say then put Wii U down as a pre-order platform for Destiny.

Like I stated in the Ubisoft and Splinter Cell: Blacklist article. Call of Duty: Ghosts and other content like Skylanders Swap Force, Angry Birds Trilogy and Angry Birds Star Wars could be last chance saloon for Nintendo and Wii U. Meaning if these games sell like crap, then kiss 3rd party support from Activision goodbye, if they sell big, then who knows some Destiny might be coming the Wii U way.

What do you think, and are you going to support Activision. Are you up for this years Call of Duty killing spree? Or are you going for some former mobile shovelware.


One man and his dog.

So the dog with the tattoo is confirmed for Wii U. Question is are you in or out?

Wii U owners (myself included) have been banging on about 3rd party support, and if this years Call of Duty does the business on the Nintendo side of the fence, it could really have a ripple effect.

Like Destiny.

#Operation3rdParty, spread the word.
