Our long nightmare is over: the next Call of Duty game is indeed, after all, actually coming to Wii U, despite the debate over whether it may maybe may or may not actually have been coming.
It will be out on November 5.
To quote Activision's bold-filled press release:
Call of Duty: Ghosts — Featuring an all-new world, story, characters and experiences, all powered by a new engine, Call of Duty: Ghosts is a stunning leap forward for the blockbuster franchise. For the first time in Call of Duty, gamers play as the underdog, fighting as part of a single squad against an enemy that has superior numbers and firepower. Call of Duty: Ghosts' genre-defining multiplayer delivers gameplay innovations throughout, including dynamic map events, character customisation and other features yet-to-be-announced. The title includes Wii Remote and second-screen Wii U™ GamePad support and more. Call of Duty: Ghosts is scheduled for release on November 5, on Wii U and is not yet rated by the ESRB.
So there you go. Let's see if they can get more people playing this time around.
