Pressfire from Norway recently had an interview with Tryarch boss, Mark Lamia about Black Ops 2 and mentions that Treyarch has had a …”long tradition of working on the Nintendo platforms” when asked about a Wii U version. Check out the rest of the interview which has some good info:
PressFire: Do you have a release date?
Lamia: November 13th
PressFire: That’s around the same time as the Wii U launch, isn’t it?
Lamia: (smirks) It is… That’s what I hear, rumor-wise. I don’t think they’ve announced a launch date for the Wii U though?
PressFire: They said before christmas? But that overwatch mode, on the Wii U pad …it seems kind of obvious?
Lamia: (laughs) Do you want a job in game design?
PressFire: (laughs) So is there a Wii U version coming?
Lamia: Ah! We’re not.. we’re only talking about the other platforms at this time.
PressFire: I know.
Lamia: But here’s what I can tell you: Treyarch has a long tradition of working on the Nintendo platforms. A long tradition.
Lets hope this long tradition continues and that Black Ops 2 finds its way to Wii U and 3DS.
PressFire: That’s right, you did the Wii versions of the Modern Warfare games.
Lamia: Uh huh, and the Wii versions of all our Call of Duty titles. And we made the GameCube version of Big Red One. And the Wii version of Spiderman Web of Shadows. We have a lot of experience on the Wii and on the Nintendo platforms. So yeah, we enjoy the Nintendo Wii. We enjoy working on that.
