Activision Believes in the Wii U, Six Titles Coming This Fall Including Call of Duty: Ghosts

It's pretty tough to sell gaming consoles when major game developers are shunning your system, and Nintendo is actually facing such a threat with the Wii U. Facing tough reviews, half-baked software and general confusion on whether the Wii U is simply a spec-bumped Wii, Nintendo found out in May that Electronic Arts would not be working the Wii U into its forthcoming development cycles. In other words, major next-gen titles from EA wouldn't be produced for the Wii U; only the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

The biggest fear, of course, is if such a move triggered a wave of followers. Nintendo has surely been on pins and needles as it waits, but today some good news came down the pike. Activision has placed its officially support behind the Wii U, with six titles slated to hit the console this fall. Call of Duty: Ghosts (11/5) will feature Wii Remote and second-screen Wii U GamePad support and more, while other titles include: Skylanders SWAP Force; Angry Birds Trilogy; Angry Birds Star Wars; SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge; Wipeout Create & Crash.


Hopefully, this is a good sign for Wii U gamers going forward. Losing EA was a major blow, but at least the next rendition of CoD will be safely en route.

Nintendo has always been strong with their first party games.

They are missing a core game on the system. They are even missing a strong Mario title.

I think if they can actually get a core zelda and metroid game out, that will really move the system and encourage development.

The problem tends to be that Nintendo is typically the only ones creative enough to use their full features in a fun way.

While I hate defending anything Ea does, didn't they have an issue with they couldn't get the Frostbite 3 engine to run well at all with the WiiU? If I remember correctly it was more to do with the hardware/software couldn't handle their engine than anything. With EA trying to basically use the Frostbite engine for every game you can't blame them for that if it was that issue.

CoD engine isn't even close in comparison.
