A lot of Nintendo Wii owners were complaining about the lack of love shown by Infinity Ward, since they haven’t gotten the chance to get a Modern Warfare port yet. Well, never say never, I suppose. Activision announced that they will be releasing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to the Nintendo Wii coming this November. The release will be coming along with it’s successor, Modern Warfare 2 on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a port of the hit FPS Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare released way back in 2007. The Wii version of this game is expected to arrive on November 10th of this year, and this sounds like great news for all of you Call of Duty fans on the Wii. Treyarch, the developers of Call of Duty: World at War, will be handling the development of the port to the Wii. Activision is also expected to comment about this announcement some time tomorrow.
Call of Duty 4 was the lastest entry in the Call of Duty franchise to skip the port to the Wii, and it seems that Activision is going to be fixing that. It was also announced earlier this week that another entry into the franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized, will be making it’s entry onto the Nintendo DS.
The release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the Nintendo Wii is good news, they are tapping into a whole new audience now. Allowing for innovative gameplay with the Wii motion controller. Some people think that Activision is just milking the Call of Duty series out, but I don’t think so. I’ve heard complaints since the release of the first Multiplayer video release of Modern Warfare 2 about the absence of a Call of Duty 4 port to the Wii. Don’t look at this as Activision milking the series, look at it as Activision trying to please another gaming audience by allowing them to enjoy what the Call of Duty series has to offer.
