Call of Duty: Black Ops II is gunning for the Wii U, according to the LinkedIn resume of a Treyarch quality assurance tester. This person's profile indicated he performed various forms of testing on an unannounced Wii U version of this November's Call of Duty.

As of press time, neither Nintendo nor Activision had responded to GameSpot's requests for comment.

If Call of Duty: Black Ops II does arrive on the Wii U, it will represent a continuation of Activision's eagerness to ship Call of Duty games for Nintendo hardware. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Reflex Edition, Call of Duty: World at War, and Call of Duty 3 all came to the Wii.

Additionally, Nintendo of America vice president of sales and marketing Scott Moffitt said in June that the Wii U could become the preferred way to play core games, like Call of Duty.

"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," he said at the time. "That's one application that could be exciting and could enhance gameplay for a core gamer."

The Wii U will ship worldwide this holiday season.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is due out on November 13 and is a sequel to 2010's original Black Ops, which is the best-selling series entry to date, moving more than 25 million copies as of August 2011. For more on the upcoming game, check out GameSpot's latest preview.
