Activision Bringing Skylanders Swap Force And Call of Duty: Ghosts To E3

"This is obviously a big year"
There has been a lot of confusion surrounding Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest in Activision's long-running franchise. Nobody seems to definitively know if it's coming to Wii U or not.
When it was announced in early May, the publisher did not mention Nintendo's home console, however, since then several media outlets have listed Wii U as a platform and GameSpot recently did the same.
Whether it comes to Wii U or not, it'll definitely be on show at this year's E3 as Activision has confirmed it's bringing it along for the ride. Well, it would have been a bit weird without it really - an upcoming Call of Duty title is starting to become a regular part of the expo nowadays.
One title we do know is coming to Nintendo systems is Skylanders Swap Force. It's down for a Wii U, 3DS and Wii release and will be playable at E3.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will also be playable but Activision's third title Destiny - developed by Bungie of Halo fame - will only be shown off to the masses.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision, had the following to say on this year's expo:
This is obviously a big year - not just for Activision, but for the entire industry. There's a console transition coming and naturally, everyone wants to see what new possibilities that will unleash in the games. We remain laser focused on delivering the things we know our gamers care about most: great gameplay, immersive worlds, and cool innovations. And that's what our amazing lineup at E3 this year will deliver.
Perhaps we'll find out once and for all if Call of Duty: Ghosts is a Wii U title or not. Only time will tell.
