Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Isn’t Coming to Wii U

Sledgehammer Games revealed the upcoming Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be coming to the Wii U.
[adsense250itp]Michael Condrey, co-founder of Sledgehammer confirmed the news on Twitter when asked if the next Call of Duty would be making its way to the Wii U. According to Condrey, the decision was made by Activision and will allow Sledgehammer to focus its efforts on developing Advanced Warfare for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
High Moon Studios is working on development for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Advanced Warfare. The last two Call of Duty games, Black Ops 2 and Ghosts, were released on Wii U with teams at Treyarch working on the ports.
Advanced Warfare is the first Call of Duty game to be released in the new three-year development cycle for the series. 2015 will see the release of Treyarch’s entry with Infinity Ward’s following in 2016.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches on Nov. 4.
Many would argue that the loss of Call of Duty for the Wii U isn’t too big for hardcore Nintendo fans. Activision likely predicts low sales for the franchise on that particular console and it isn’t the only one. Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot stated that Watch Dogs is the company’s last mature game for the Wii U even though a solid release date still hasn’t been given.
