Modern Warfare 3 coming to Wii

Activision announces latest Call of Duty game coming to Nintendo's console on November 8 alongside Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC iterations.

by

Activision is returning to war this fall with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Previously announced only for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, the publisher today confirmed that Modern Warfare 3 will arrive for the Nintendo Wii alongside its high-definition cousins on November 8.

The Wii version isn't going to look like this.

Activision made the news during a post-earnings conference call today. The publisher did not say if there will be unique features for the Wii version or who is developing the game.

Modern Warfare 3 picks up where Modern Warfare 2 left off, and it is set on a global stage. Players will fight on multiple continents in places like London, France, Germany, and New York City.

I was amazed when Black Ops was made for the Wii but Mw2 wasn't. Black ops was about 6 to 8 gigs and all of a second they make it 4 gigs for the Wii. Now they might cut out a lot of multiplayer maps, game cutscenes and a few missions to get this on the Wii

@dawnofhero Not to go off-subject, but GoldenEye from the Wii isn't being remade, but instead ported.

@suprsolider Medal of Honor may have been a longer-running series, but it doesn't make it any more unique than Call of Duty, especially the first game in the CoD series. In fact, the first game in the series was really good, if not better than what the guys at EA were pumping out. Besides, some of the guys who made Call of Duty also worked on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault.

They should put BF3 (maybe all shooters) only on the Wii. Who in their right mind would want to play a first person shooter with a controller or m/k? Plus, pretty graphics ruin games anyways. Yep, when game companies finally "get it" I'll be playing BF3 on my Wii. Make it happen "game companies."

The Wii can't even pull off those kind of graphics. Why do you think Goldeneye 007 is being remade for PS3 and 360?

If i get MW3 is because this story was really good but il probably rent... Thats what it deserves for me;) I will give my money to EA instead...

Does anyone else realize that mw2 was never released on the wii. How are the wii owners gonna know what's going on in the story? Maybe the back story won't be necessary to understand, but still, they are gonna miss out on what I thought was a pretty good story in mw2 and most likely a couple of key characters will be returning in mw3. Oh well, I don't have to worry since I'm gonna buy it for an hd console

I prefer CoD on the Wii purely for the control setup, both versions(HD-i own ps3 and non HD) will likely have the same annoying gripe that stops me from playing CoD regularly.Overuse of hand grenades in campaign mode, really annoys me, which is why i prefer Goldeneye, they practically cut grenades totally out of that game and it's better for it, pure shooting fun.

Why are so many people crying about how Activision is doing this for money....DUH! They are a business so their sole goal is to make as much as they can, if people don't like it why do they keep buying the game?

@ronnet Dude you are so right!! It is not about quality it is about sales end of story, The game could probably be broken for all they care as long as they can cash out.

@m8ing_seezun You can use the Cla$$ic Controller Pro (yes, the Wii has a dual analog standard controller but you wouldn't know that now would you) for COD or Goldeneye. Also, Aim Assist will be turned off so you actually will have to hit your target and not hitting somewhere near the target with the assistance of semi lock on and an enlarged hitbox. See you at the winners circle. I'll be the one in the middle holding the big Golden Trophy with the "1st place" on it. :D

@m8ing_seezun Oh please, mad? Surely you just. :lol: Lets play Goldeneye or COD Wii, You can use Dual Analogs and I'll use Wiimote/Nunchuck setup. And my post has factual points that back it up aka almost every killcam video you see online. Yours is just blind fanboy nonsense.

I'm really happy to hear this. I own a Wii, but the PS3 is my system of choice for multi-platform games. However, my Dad is a Wii-CoD-gamer and misses out on all Infinity Ward's titles. This is good news for him.

Whoever buys a wii and expect all thosr 1st person shooters and a lot of serious M rated games ends up selling it and complains about the 3rd party support...Look at the gamecube.The gamecube didnt have much 3rd party support but it had amazing games made by nintendo.Thats why some of us bought the wii and gamecube!for the nintendo games!we couldnt care less about all those 3rd party titles.yes,sure its a nice addition but i wouldnt ever trade them for all those fanatstic nintendo games.for me at least..nintendo games is all i need

They probably want to bring MW4 to the WiiU for a simultaneous release so they want to draw as many Wii users into the fold early ans they can. Why wait an extra year for a game? It's MW. Isn't there a new game like every 6 months anyway?

Ofcourse it is comming to the Wii. It would have been released on the Gameboy Advanced if deemed profitable as well. If anyone enjoys this on the Wii then that is great. I'm not a fan of the franchise at all, so I couldn't care less on what platforms it gets released. But lets be honest here, CoD:MW wasn't designed with the Wii in mind. It's gameplay doesn't benefit from the Wii's features and from a development point of few it is brought down by the Wii's drawbacks. They are only going this route because the amount of copies sold has hit a maximum on the 360 and PS3 and it isn't enough for Activision. The decision to bring it to the Wii wasn't done to make a quality game for the Wii, but to make more money. I still believe games can be works of art, even a shooter in their own way can be a masterpiece. But this is the Transformers franchise of gaming. And the Wii version is watching transformers on a old 13 inch tv.

Well seeing how Activision is canning pretty much everything else they have like Guitar Hero and giving True Crime publishing rights to Square Enix, i guess they need to make this game on as many platform as possible since it's their only game worth playing left....

@Phil-teh-Pirate I'd hate to be the kid who gets MW3 on the Wii while his friends are playing BF3 on PC

Well it just made the Wii Software lineup looking a little better, but I won't buy MW3 on Wii. I'd buy it on PS3. Skyward Sword is for Wii :)

If they are going to throw this game Nintendo's way, could they at least say a WiiU title is coming?
