Results produced by the Nintendo Channel show that gamers who own Modern Warfare: Reflex have been averaging roughly 25 hours of playtime on the acclaimed first person shooter since it’s launch.
It appears as though Infinity Ward, the developers behind the Modern Warfare franchise, aren’t particularly interested on working on the Wii.
Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s community manager, believes there’s just too much difference between the Wii and other competing platforms when it comes to delivering a spectacular cinematic experience.
“If we felt like we could deliver the cinematic experience we were going for on other platforms, then we would gladly move to that platform. Right now, we don’t think the Wii can deliver the exact experience that we’re doing. We like to be very equal across all platforms, and if it’s not equal then we won’t do it.”

Treyarch’s recently revitalized version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is looking surprisingly sumptuous given the Wii’s limited graphical capabilities. The game is still set to be released 10th November, a day before its successor lands on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It should certainly be worth the wait.
Modern Warfare for the Nintendo Wii won’t be developed by original developer, Infinity Ward, but instead will developed by Treyarch. Whilst it isn’t Modern Warfare 2 as many were previously expecting, it will still be a welcomed addition to the ever-extensive Wii back catalogue.
