Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will soon be getting its release on the Wii U console, that is, if the LinkedIn profile of one of the Quality Assurance (QA) testers from Activision is to be believable. IGN was able to uncover this profile and find out that it belongs to someone named Randall (though, many details on the account have been changed since its discovery by IGN and claims that he performed “QA testing on both PlayStation 3 and the Wii U” while under the employment of Treyarch. His LinkedIn profile continued to say that he had done some multiplayer testing just this morning while working with the team, along with “ad hoc testing, and regression.”
Randall has been performing these duties since May (of 2012), which is suggesting that the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 has been in development since that date at the very least. It really wouldn’t be a huge surprise to hear that Black Ops 2 is in development for the Wii U for two different reasons. One being that the first Black Ops title made it to the Wii. The second being that there are a ton of games like Mass Effect 3 looking to jump on the Wii U wagon. From the titles we’ve been seeing popping up for this new and upcoming console, the Wii U must have some amazing hardware. Aside from that, there has been numerous Call of Duty titles that have been featured on the Nintendo Wii anyway.
Most of those ports are very smooth and solid too, sure it’s not as fully-featured as the Xbox 360 and PS3 ports, but they are still pretty solid. That should all be changing with the Wii U though. This new console from Nintendo won’t be suffering from the same hardware limitations that the original Wii did, that said, we still haven’t seen any hardware specs yet. Maybe Nintendo is trying to keep it under wraps until the release? Whatever the case, its safe to assume that Black Ops 2 will be coming to the Wii U when it launches in the next couple of months. This all is some really solid evidence, but neither Activision or Nintendo has made any sort of announcement on this just yet. Maybe after this info, they might just confirm it?
If the LinkedIn profile is true, Black Ops 2 is indeed on its way, still, Activision hasn’t announced it yet, but the company may just be waiting until Nintendo decides to release more details about their upcoming console. Nintendo, still hasn’t said anything about the system specs, pricing and really there’s been no release date announced aside from “it’ll be ready by Christmas.” Once Nintendo releases that information, it’ll be more likely that Activision will announce the Black Ops 2 port for the Wii U. In the mean time, gamers all over the world will be able to play Black Ops 2 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC when November 13th comes around the corner.
Will you be picking up a Wii U for Black Ops 2 alone or would you prefer a different console?
