Treyarch boss hints at Black Ops II for Nintendo platforms
Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has teased Call of Duty: Black Ops II for Nintendo platforms and specifically Wii U.
Lamia spoke with Norwegian site PressFire about the upcoming first-person shooter and was quizzed about the Wii U toward the end of an interview. He indicated that he wasn’t in a position to talk about other platforms currently, but went on to mention how Treyarch has been very supportive of Nintendo platforms in the past. It was additionally stated that Treyarch has made the Call of Duty titles for Wii.
You can find the entire exchange between Lamia/PressFire below.
PressFire: Do you have a release date?
Lamia: November 13th
PressFire: That’s around the same time as the Wii U launch, isn’t it?
Lamia: (smirks) It is… That’s what I hear, rumor-wise. I don’t think they’ve announced a launch date for the Wii U though?
PressFire: They said before christmas? But that overwatch mode, on the Wii U pad …it seems kind of obvious?
Lamia: (laughs) Do you want a job in game design?
PressFire: (laughs) So is there a Wii U version coming?
Lamia: Ah! We’re not.. we’re only talking about the other platforms at this time.
PressFire: I know.
Lamia: But here’s what I can tell you: Treyarch has a long tradition of working on the Nintendo platforms. A long tradition.
PressFire: That’s right, you did the Wii versions of the Modern Warfare games.
Lamia: Uh huh, and the Wii versions of all our Call of Duty titles. And we made the GameCube version of Big Red One. And the Wii version of Spiderman Web of Shadows. We have a lot of experience on the Wii and on the Nintendo platforms. So yeah, we enjoy the Nintendo Wii. We enjoy working on that.
We already have one strong piece of evidence regarding a Wii version of Black Ops II. Most of Lamia’s carefully chosen words above appear to be teasing a Wii U edition as well.
