Call of Duty: Ghosts confirmed for Wii U… or is it?

Update 4: Official Activision statement is hinting at a Wii U announcement in the future, and seems to be lumping the console in with other next-gen platforms.
Update 3: Eurogamer has now changed its article to list “next-gen platforms”. There are three likely scenarios here: a Wii U version won’t be confirmed until May 21, a Wii U version won’t be confirmed until a Nintendo-related event, or the game isn’t coming to the Wii U at all.
Update 2: Conflicting information is out and about! There is, at least, this article from Eurogamer that says a Wii U version has been confirmed.
Update: Call of Duty: Ghosts is now available for pre-order on Amazon and GameStop (thanks Jake), but there isn’t a Wii U SKU listed at either retailer. I imagine this is just tentative… hopefully, anyway!
Based on previous leaks, it’s pretty darn clear that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be heading to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. What has been less clear is which other platforms the shooter is planned for.
Only one retailer listed Ghosts for Wii U in light of recent leaks. However, according to an article on Engadget which has since been pulled (see a cached version here), the new Call of Duty is set for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4, and next Xbox. The site also says that the game is releasing on November 6. A similar article went live on Joystiq earlier today, noting that Ghosts “is in the works for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 as well as next-generation console platforms, including Wii U.”
A teaser trailer should be out fairly soon. Unfortunately, no in-game footage will be included. Joystiq’s pulled article says that “the adrenaline-fueled video showcases a smattering of quick-cuts and a reveal of the game’s title, which retailers leaked in April.”
