Activision Support Gives Small Hope for Wii U Edition of Black Ops III

When Call of Duty: Black Ops III was revealed late last month, it came to the surprise of no one that a Wii U edition was not announced whatsoever. There was reason to be hopeful for some, however. Before the reveal, visitors to the official Black Ops website had the option to link a Nintendo Network ID to Call of Duty’s service (since then removed). Now, via a trusty Twitter user, we may have reason to keep hoping for a Wii U release of Black Ops III.

When Twitter user Bluescoutz asked Activision Support why the Nintendo Network ID link-up was available despite the new game not coming to Wii U, he was told to “stay tuned for more Wii U releases”, a strong hint at future announcements.


As a publisher, Activision has significantly pulled back Wii U support since its 2012 launch. Aside from the much-expected Skylanders this fall, it’s unlikely that Activision will have a lot of future releases for Nintendo fans. The possibility remains that a Wii U Call of Duty announcement could be saved for later this year (it is not unprecedented, as it happened with both Black Ops II and Ghosts).

In the meantime, Black Ops III is due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6th, 2015. Stay tuned for any news on a Wii U port of the next-gen Call of Duty. Do you want to believe in the power of Black Ops III on Wii U?
