Wii U could 'advance' Call of Duty, says Treyarch

Developer's director of communications says Wii U potentially capable of "advancing" Call of Duty, has no idea which dev is working on Black Ops: Declassified for PS Vita.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has not been announced for Nintendo's upcoming Wii U console, but developer Treyarch believes this system could push the limits of the series.

Could Black Ops II wage war on the Wii U?

"When you talk about any technology that can enhance the Call of Duty experience, that's a technology that is worth considering," Treyarch director of communications John Rafacz told Videogamer. "There's that core Call of Duty experience and that is what fans expect, so anything that helps advance that is worth considering."

During the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Nintendo marketing executive Scott Moffitt said the Wii U could become the "preferred way" to play core titles, like Call of Duty. He said, "You can imagine how a game like Call of Duty would work on the Wii U--the GamePad will allow you to declutter the TV and pull gaming items like maps down and not interrupt your interaction and enjoy the cinematic quality of the game on the TV."

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is due out on November 13 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. As for the Wii U, that system is expected to arrive worldwide this holiday season.

Elsewhere in the interview, Rafacz said he has no idea which studio is developing Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for the PlayStation Vita.

"With regards to the Vita, all I can tell you is that it's quite literally declassified," he said.

Recently, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and Guitar Hero developer Neversoft became the fifth Activision-owned studio tapped to work on the Call of Duty franchise. That studio's project is currently unknown.
