A picture of the box art for COD Ghosts on Wii U showed up on the Nintendo Wii U Facebook page. Activision has chimed in confirming that the game will offer support for both the Wii Remote and a second-screen GamePad.
The Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts will join the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC by arriving on dealer shelves on November 5th. Versions of Ghost for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will arrive after the November 5th release date, but no official release date has been announced for those systems and we don’t expect it to be till both manufactures confirm their official release dates for the new consoles. It is safe to assume that both of these will be day one launch titles for the new consoles we think.
The news that the Wii U is getting Call of Duty: Ghosts is good news for both Nintendo and the Wii U. While the system has had trouble attracting new titles from third party developers, landing this title on the Wii U is big for Nintendo. The question is, “Will it really make that much of a difference?” and that we think is something that will be a wait and see thing. If the Wii U version is the lowest selling of all of the versions released then it didn’t make much of an impact. Actually, that is what we suspect will happen once it is released, but if it does sell it could lead other developers to take a chance on bringing other titles to the Wii U.
