The future is unclear for Call of Duty: Ghosts

by William Schwartz


Despite their traditional showing at E3 2013, the future of Call of Duty: Ghosts is completely unclear.  Fans awaiting the release of the yearly shooter still don’t know exactly where they’ll be able to purchase and play the game.  It’s pretty obvious that Activision will hit their core platforms with the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next generation releases, but what about the Wii U?

Last week at E3, Mark Rubin jokingly spoke about the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and not even the executive producer of the game knows for sure whether it will arrive on Nintendo’s new console.   Speaking with GI, Mark Rubin explains when asked about Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Wii U.

“Ha!  You know that’s funny, because I don’t even know the answer to that.  I swear to God, I don’t.  I was trying to say in the interview that I really don’t know and I’m not supposed to talk about it.  I’m not supposed to talk about the fact that I don’t know.”

While the reveal for Call of Duty: Ghosts is out of the bag, the game had a rather small showing at E3.  This could be largely attributable to the fact that Activision made a pre-emptive strike by releasing all of their E3 media just days ahead of the conference.  Instead of waiting for the show to begin, the company revealed new gameplay trailers and technology demos for their fans to take in.  And while E3 attendees got a brief look at some unseen single player gameplay, the company is still hushed about the game’s all-important multiplayer component.

We’ll have to wait and see if Activision sees the Wii U as a viable platform for Call of Duty: Ghosts, but for now, the game is confirmed for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
