Gamers hoping to see the much-anticipated release of Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Wii U may have cause for concern, with hints dropping that the game may not release on the Nintendo platform. Call of Duty: Ghosts executive producer Mark Rubin did say in an interview last week that the shooter was heading for the Wii U, but now refuses to confirm its release on the shiny white box.
The guys over at Games Industry asked Rubin some extra questions following his previous statement that the game would grace the Wii U, with the Infinity Ward veteran giving a different answer second time around:
“Ha! You know that’s funny, because I don’t even know the answer to that. I swear to God, I don’t. I was trying to say in the interview [that] I really don’t know and I’m not supposed to talk about it. I’m not supposed to talk about the fact that I don’t know.”
For the sake of asking, questions then turned to how the Wii U version would fare against current-gen versions of the game on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and if it will look anything like next-gen consoles set for the end of the year:
“I imagine [it could], yeah,” he replied. “If you look at the hardware specs, I think it would be more in line with 360 and PS3, but I’m not sure.
“There could be some things [in the hardware] that bump it up a little higher than that,” he answered. “I haven’t played with it enough to know. I have one at home, and I think it’s cool; I can’t stop playing ZombiU.”
It’s no secret that the release of the Wii U wasn’t what Nintendo was expecting, with sales not hitting the heights many predicted and developers choosing to fray away from developing on the platform. Even if the upcoming shooter does decide not to release a Wii U version, I doubt it will have that much effect on the game’s overall sales.
