While other developers and publishers have left the Wii U behind, focusing their efforts on PS3, Xbox 360, PC and the two new next generation machines, Activision have continually supported the system, releasing key titles such as Call of Duty: Ghosts on Nintendo’s platform.
In a recent interview with Activision’s UK managing director Roy Stackhouse, which we’ll publish a video of later today, we asked their reasons for supporting what some would consider an unworthy venture, and if they’d be evaluating their stance in the future.
His reply was full of confidence that Nintendo could and would find their feet: “Nintendo have a great track record of bringing great consoles to the market place, and I think it’s a bit too early to be writing any console off at the moment, let alone the Wii U.
“I mean, there’s a big stable in the Nintendo market with family, that hasn’t come to the Wii U yet, and we’re sure that Nintendo will make the Wii U a success.” he continued, pointing out something that Nintendo appear to be looking to change with upcoming titles.
“That’s part of why you’ll be able to buy Call of Duty on the Wii U.” Stackhouse concluded. So, it appears their support won’t dwindle any time soon, and that will only serve to help Nintendo in creating a successful home console.
