According to magazine scans from Nintendo Gamer, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is coming to the Wii U in November. We have previously heard rumors from both developer Treyarch and publisher Activison, hinting at bringing the next Call of Duty installment on the Wii U. However, nothing was officially announced — not even at E3 — as it appears that Nintendo Gamer magazine has an exclusive on the story. Too late now, the news is officially out: Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is coming to the Wii U. While the publication runs a small preview on the game, it doesn’t list any details as to how the game will utilize the Wii U GamePad controller. The news was first broken by GamesAsylum, who apparently got their hands on an early issue of the magazine and took the above photo.
We’re waiting for confirmation on this from Activision. Having Call of Duty Black Ops 2 as a launch title would really help the Wii U appeal to the core gamers, since we didn’t see that many core FPS titles revealed at E3, besides ZombiU.
