Activision Clueless On How Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC Will Work On Wii U

Nintendo's online plans are still a mystery to many third parties
Despite the launch of the Wii U being just one month away, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 publisher Activision has admitted that it still doesn't know how the online side of Nintendo's new console will work, echoing worrying statements from other areas of the industry.
To quote The Verge:
When asked if the Wii U release would be a "first class" Call of Duty citizen, meaning "compatibility with the full suite of Elite services, the Season Pass, and individual Map Packs," Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg answered, "That's our goal, but the honest answer here, Chris, is that we're still working out the details with Nintendo."
Activision has today confirmed that the Call of Duty Elite online experience will be offered entirely free of charge, but the uncertainty surrounding the Wii U's online service means that nobody seems to know if Elite will be made available to Nintendo players.
