Despite recent reports to the contrary, Call of Duty: Ghosts may not be coming to Nintendo’s Wii U console after all.
During E3 last week, GameSpot was shown a live demo of the game by Call of Duty: Ghosts executive producer Mark Rubin. During the demo, Rubin was asked whether or not a Wii U version was in the cards, to which he replied that the company wasn’t ready to talk about that just yet.
Rubin’s response led some to believe that a Wii U version had been confirmed, but don’t get your hopes up just yet.
GamesIndustry International reached out to Rubin for clarification on the matter, and here’s what the developer had to say:
“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.”
Before you let your hopes get down too much, that doesn’t necessarily mean that a Wii U version is out of the picture, either – neither the developer nor Activision are willing to talk about any versions beyond what has already been announced.
It’s far from a confirmation one way or another, so at least there’s still hope.
In a follow-up question, the site asked whether or not it would even be possible to bring the game over to Nintendo’s platform, seeing as how it is confirmed to be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Rubin seemed unsure, but admitted that it seemed possible.
“I imagine [it could], yeah. 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.”
