Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Not Coming To Wii U
Those hoping for more third-party support on the Wii U were struck another blow today, as Sledgehammer Games’s Michael Condrey announced via Twitter that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be appearing on Wii U.
@1422644 no, no WiiU. That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC.

This comes on the heels of yesterday’s news that Ubisoft will be withdrawing support for the beleaguered console as well. Multiplayer offerings, particularly FPSs, aren’t exactly littering the Wii U’s library, so this likely comes as a big blow for those interested in swapping bullets with their friends online. Activision will continue to support the Wii U however, most notably with its successful Skylanders franchise. It is unfortunate for Wii U owners, but this is the nature of business, and clearly Activision doesn’t believe that a Wii U version is worth diverting sources too. Condrey did note that it was purely a decision on Activision’s part, and that they are now completely focused on the PS4, Xbox One and PC version.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is currently slated for a November 4th release date.

That’s the one I’m waiting on.
