An Activision employee reportedly told Calvin Hall at this years DICE summit that the company is throughly disappointed with sales for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Wii U. The employee says that Activision gave Wii U owners the definitive version of Black Ops 2 with Off TV features, and Nintendo fans quite simply didn’t support it. He went on to say that developers just aren’t enthusiastic about Nintendo’s latest home console and the only reason publishers are still going to bring games to Wii U is because they don’t want to damage their relationship with Nintendo. However, he did say that Activision will continue to support the platform.
“Activision didn’t expect much from Wii U sales of Black Ops 2, but they sure didn’t expect it to be that abysmal. Activision gave Wii U owners the best version of Blops 2 with Off TV features, and Nintendo fans didn’t support it. It’s easy for Nintendo fans to trash publishers for not giving them ports, but publishers have wisened up. They realize Nintendo fans are all talk. Nintendo fans are vocal with their mouths, but when it’s time to open their wallets, they’ll spend that $60 on New Super Mario Bros instead.”
“There’s just no enthusiasm for it. The only reason publishers are still going to bring games to Wii U is because they don’t want to damage their relationship with Nintendo.”
