Activision finally confirms Wii U support

Needs to get ducks in a row before announcements

While we have heard a number of rumors that Activision is going to support the new Nintendo Wii U with titles, we have heard little from Activision in this regard. Eric Hirshberg, the head of publishing at Activision, has finally officially confirmed that the company will be supporting the Wii U, which is good news for Nintendo.

Despite the rumors that a Skylanders title, as well as a Call of Duty title, was headed to the Wii U, Hirshberg claims that the company isn’t in a hurry to announce anything; and they want to get their ducks in a row before making any official announcements as far as specific titles and such.

So, basically what you have is Activision confirming that at least some Activision titles will be coming for the Wii U. While rumors have said that we will see a version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for the Wii U and a Skylanders title, Activision isn’t yet ready to confirm this. We suspect, however, that once we get closer to the official launch of the Wii U, we will see Activision start to make its Wii U announcements.

Of course, the confirmation of the new Nintendo Pro Controller has helped the situation with developers who were not sure if Nintendo really planned to target the console at hard core gamers. Many developers feel that the Pro Controller is necessary to be able to provide the proper kind of experience with some titles.
