Rumour: Call Of Duty: Ghosts Will Be Spooking Wii U This Year

Spanish retailer gives Nintendo fans renewed hope

Activision is close to announcing this year's Call of Duty entry, but we've already seen a couple of retailers leak information related to the title.

Call of Duty: Ghosts apparently uses a new game engine and is expected to hit multiple platforms — one of which should be the Wii U, if a listing by Spanish retailer XtraLife.

The listing — which has since been removed — even showcased boxart for the Wii U version. While this shouldn't be taken as an official confirmation, there's an excellent chance that the next Call of Duty title will be headed to Nintendo's system — Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was a much-hyped launch title for the machine, after all — and publisher Activision has continued to support the console with other releases since then.

It's being reported that Activision will be spilling the beans this week, so we should have solid confirmation soon.

Given the lack of significant third party support in 2013, are you pleased by the prospect of playing the world's biggest video game franchise on your Wii U? Sound off in the comments section to tell us your thoughts.
