Activision: We will be supporting Wii U

Nintendo has locked up Wii U launch games from a bevy of third-party publishers including Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, THQ, Sega, Tecmo, Namco, 2K Games, and WB Games. You’ll notice one major name is missing from that list: Activision.

But don’t panic! Activision has at least one Wii U game in development, they’re just not ready to make any official announcements yet.

The news comes via GamesIndustry International, and a conversation they had with Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg, who said, “We don’t have announcements today, but we will be supporting Wii U.”

The publication also spoke to Mark Lamia of Treyarch and pushed both men on the possibility of a Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Obviously, neither would commit to Black Ops II on the Wii U, but Hirshberg did talk up the tablet features that Call of Duty Elite has brought to Modern Warfare 3 and Lamia had several good things to say about touch control as well.

This is definitely interesting for the future of Call of Duty on the Wii U because, I’m not sure if you’re aware, the Wii U GamePad will include a built-in touchscreen.
