Activision on the decision to bring Call of Duty: Ghosts to Wii U
It took awhile, but Activision finally confirmed Call of Duty: Ghosts for Wii U last month. The game marks the series’ second entry to launch on Nintendo’s newest home console.
In a recent interview with Joystiq, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg spoke about the decision to bring Call of Duty: Ghosts to Wii U.
Hirshberg explained that Activision is looking to help Nintendo be successful – the same approach taken with other platforms – which in turn boosts the publisher’s business. He added, “We generally try to be wherever our gamers want to play.”
Hirshberg’s comments in full:
“The driving force behind us bringing Ghosts to the Wii U is the same as every other platform, it’s just we want to do everything we can to make the first-party successful. Obviously if they’re successful, that’s good for our business, that’s been our strategy in the past, we’ve been a very kind of platform agnostic company. We generally try to be wherever our gamers want to play. So we thought if our content can help the Wii U and Nintendo gain some momentum, then we wanted to do that.
