Activision doesn't want Wii owners to miss out on the "excitement" of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, so the publisher will be releasing the game for Nintendo's platform alongside the 360, PS3, and PC versions on November 8.
Activision executive Eric Hirshberg announced the port yesterday during the company's Q2 financials, declaring that the publisher was putting the game out on the Wii "so as not to leave any of the community out of the excitement."
It was not stated who would be handling the port. Treyarch has been responsible for the Wii versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
While the 360, PS3, and PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops scored a respectable 9/10 from Virgin Media, the Wii version could only manage a 6/10. "Upon first arriving at Vietnam in 1968, protagonist Mason remarks that his friend Woods looks like 'hammered shit'. Coincidentally, so does the Wii port of Call of Duty: Black Ops," we said in our Call of Duty: Black Ops review.
Modern Warfare 2, on the other hand, never made it to the Wii.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released for 360, PS3, PC, and now Wii on November 8.
