Call Of Duty Elite Isn't Coming to Wii U at Launch

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 whether paid map packs or Call of Duty Elite will make it onto Nintendo's newest console, even post-launch.
This bad news hasn't had much time to sink in, because it has now been confirmed that Call of Duty Elite will not ship with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 next month.
To quote Kotaku's Jason Schreier:
"We are currently evaluating options for Call of Duty Elite to support Nintendo's Wii U game system, however Call of Duty Elite for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will not support this platform when the game launches on November 13th," an Activision representative said in an e-mail to me.
Activision previously stated that it was still working out the details with Nintendo for online content, but this could be something of a blow for prospective Wii U owners. Does this change your mind about a purchase of Black Ops 2 on Wii U?
