A hilarious thought
In February, there was a rumour floating around Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. The Activision-published title was supposedly going to include HD Rumble, motion controls and would be ported by a developer who had existing experience with the series - which at the time was suspected to...
That's that, then
Activision's latest shooty-shooty-boom-boom game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was officially revealed to the world late last week, but one thing missing from the presentation was any mention of a Switch version - something that many had optimistically expected, given recent rumours.
Waiting in the shadows, perhaps?
Activision has officially confirmed that this year's Call of Duty outing will be the fourth entry in the popular Black Ops sub-series. Black Ops 4 (or, as Activision would have us say, "IIII") arrives in October, but the publisher has only confirmed the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions so far. We know what you're...

No word on when, or if, they'll be back up.
UPDATE: (9:05 CST) It looks like the servers are back up. For now, online for Call of Duty on the Wii will live another day. Evidently, it was some sort of technical issue. As many of you likely remember, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was shut down for good almost exactly two years ago. Succeeded by the...
Assume nothing, hope for a belated Fall release
Call of Duty: Black Ops III has had its big reveal, and confirmed platforms for the usual triumvirate - PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Treyarch, the lead developer and source of some hope for a Wii U version courtesy of the studio's considerable experience with the Nintendo system, has also confirmed that as...
It's Spring-time, which means the inevitable limbo that comes with a new Call of Duty release; the Wii U had two CoD games in a row before missing out on the most-recent entry. Now we have Black Ops III on the way, and the presence of a Nintendo Network ID registration option on the franchise website has sparked rumours that the latest...
It's that time again
Back when the Wii U was young, Activision supported the console by making it play host to its yearly Call of Duty franchise. The console launched with Black Ops 2 and a year later would get Call of Duty: Ghosts. However, last year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare didn't make the jump to the Wii U, which seemed to signal the end...
Eurogamer's Digital Foundry issues its verdict
Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts may not have reached the standard series heights with its sales — perhaps due to a combination of wearied franchise veterans, a middling critical reaction and the impending arrival of the One and PS4 — but it's nevertheless one of the biggest releases of the year...
Patch 'em up, mate

Changes specific to the Wii U version include: Feature...
Activision confirms that Call of Duty Elite will not ship with Black Ops 2
Wii U's online system still remains a mystery to many developers, as Nintendo continues to remain tight-lipped on how things like Miiverse and the eShop will work. Just yesterday, Activision admitted that it was unsure as to how they will deliver DLC to Wii U players, or...

We already knew, but it's nice to see footage, right?
Earlier today we shared a sneaky snapshot from the New York Wii U event, as good as confirming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Wii U. Now the cat — which we knew was in the bag — has finally been let out and shown off near the end of the event. It was confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2...
GameStop pre-order listing omits Nintendo's console
Those who have enjoyed the Call of Duty franchise's previous outings on Nintendo platforms will surely be disappointed to learn of retail outlet GameStop's omission of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops' Wii incarnation on its pre-order listing. Activision has yet to officially announce which systems will carry the title, so it's all speculation..
Bringing the full online experience, a new co-op mode and Zapper compatibility.
Three months from release, Activision is starting to unravel what exactly it plans on doing with the Wii version of it's mammoth success story Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
