In a not-so-shocking turn of events today, developer Sledgehammer Games revealed that Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be coming to the Wii U. According to a tweet from Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey, the decision not to release the game on Nintendo's console was not his or his company's, but Activision's.
"No, no WiiU," he said in response to a question about bringing the game to Wii U. "That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC."
This news comes on the heels of Ubisoft saying earlier in the week that it would not release any more mature-themed games to the Wii U after Watch Dogs releases later this year.
This is also a change in attitude from Activision because it released Call of Duty: Black Ops II alongside the Wii U in 2012, and released Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U last year.
UPDATE: Treyarch confirmed via Twitter that it's not working on a Wii U version of Advanced Warfare either. For those holding out hope, we haven't heard from High Moon Studios, the dev working on the PS3/360 version of the game. For what it's worth, High Moon has never developed anything for a Nintendo console.
