Call of Duty: Ghosts, the next entry in the popular FPS franchise from Activision, will be coming to the Wii U November 5th, alongside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. The game will instead be handled by Treyarch, the team responsible for the Black Ops games and not Infinity Ward whom are developing the other versions of COD: Ghosts.
It's official…we're working to bring #CODGhosts to the WiiU on Nov. 5!

There had previously been a lot of mystery surrounding the potential Wii U version of COD: Ghosts. In the months since the game’s initial announcement, Activision would not outright confirm or deny its existence. Call of Duty: Black Ops II was a Wii U launch title, however the Wii U has not flown off the shelves like its predecessor did, therefore many speculated that Activision would not bother bringing its flagship FPS back this year. Luckily for Nintendo die-hards, the issue can finally be put to rest, the FPS juggernaut will return this year to the Wii U.
According to a press release from Activision, Wii remote controllers will be compatible and the game will take advantage of the Wii U’s second screen in some capacity. Other than that, little other Wii U specific information has been announced.
Good or bad move for Activision? Let us know in the comments below.
