Wii U Reference Discovered In Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Website
Posted by Damien McFerran
Could we be getting a version after all?
When Activision announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, confirmation of a Wii U edition of the game was sadly lacking.
While this is the first entry in the series to get a genuine push on next-generation platforms, PS3 and Xbox 360 players will still be able to join the party, albeit with a version produced by a different team. Given the existence of "last gen" editions, one would have hoped that Nintendo owners would be getting some FPS love — but so far, Activision hasn't spoken of it.
However, by digging into the source code of the official Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare website, a reference to Wii U can be found:
Does this mean Nintendo's console will be getting its own version of the futuristic shooter? Maybe. Wii U being included in the site's code could be a throwback to a previous version of the site (it's possible that it was built on top of the code for older CoD sites), or it could be a placeholder that was inserted a while back just in case the Wii U version became solid reality.
Or it could mean what fans will want it to mean — Activision is working on a Wii U edition of the game and is keeping it under wraps for some reason.
This isn't the first time we've had our hopes built up, of course. Before E3, a listing on the official event website got everyone excited, but Activision made no confirmation of the game coming to Nintendo's system during the conference.
