Update: Treyarch isn’t working on a potential port either.



Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not coming to Wii U, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey has said.

Condrey mentioned on Twitter earlier today:


There is still a small possibility that Advanced Warfare could come to Wii U, as another studio like High Moon Studios or Treyarch would handle the port. But given how we’re already heading towards the end of August, the chances of it happening are certainly dwindling.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released on November 4.

Note: until we receive an official confirmation that Advanced Warfare is Wii U bound, this is probably the last time you’ll see this game mentioned here.

Thanks to Cameron for the tip.

Activision has launched a brand new teaser page for the next Call of Duty. You can find it right here.

At present, there’s not much to see on the site. There’s a countdown that will expire just under three days from now (Sunday), and there’s also a scrambled image featured.

No goodies hidden in the source code, sadly. It does state that fans will be able to watch the “world reveal” on May 4 though.

Sledgehammer Games showed an image from the next Call of Duty during a GDC 2014 panel last month. It took awhile, but the shot has finally surfaced. You can find it above.

Infinity Ward and Treyarch have acted as the two big developers behind Call of Duty. But today, Activision confirmed the addition of one more major team: Sledgehammer Games.

Starting with this year’s Call of Duty, new entries in the series will take on a three-year development cycle. Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer will rotate on yearly releases. Sledgehammer will be responsible for the unannounced 2014 title.

Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said during a financial call today:

“This will give our designers more time to envision and innovate for each title. Simultaneously, it will give our content creators more focus on DLC and micro-DLC which, as you know, have become large and high-margin opportunities and significant engagement drivers. Finally, we’ll give our teams more time to polish, helping ensure we deliver the best possible experience to our fans – each and every time.”

(Activision) needed a third studio capable of delivering the level of excellence required for the West’s biggest interactive entertainment franchise (and that Sledgehammer Games fits the bill.) They demonstrated their skill on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and on their past highly-rated games.”
