Activision CEO, and a polarizing figure in the game industry, Bobby Kotick, recently said in an interview that Activision — the biggest publisher in the world — are excited and enthusiastic over the Wii U. Speaking to UK newspaper The Guardian, Kotick said:
“It’s now more possible to do deep rich multiplayer games – we need more clarity from Nintendo on the online capabilities, but we’ve had development systems for a while now and we’re very enthusiastic about it.”
Kotick went on, saying that the Wii U is capable of “deep, rich multiplayer”, something the previous console, the Wii, was lacking, especially on the online front. Kotick concluded by praising the hardware:
“It is a fantastic piece of hardware. Technically, we’re super excited about what we can do on it, it’s really something incredible.”
Activision (also known as Activision-Blizzard) is the developer and publisher of some of the biggest titles in the world, including the popular Call of Duty franchise and World of Warcraft.
