Treyarch developing Modern Warfare 3 for Wii
Black Ops developer behind the just-announced Nintendo iteration of November's Call of Duty.
During a postearnings financial call yesterday, Activision announced that a Wii version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 would arrive alongside the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC iterations on November 8. Today, the publisher revealed who exactly would be handling the project.
Call of Duty: Black Ops shop Treyarch is developing the Wii version of Modern Warfare 3. The news comes from Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling, who announced the detail during a recent podcast with Activision social media manager Dan Amrich.
"The Wii has grown so much as a platform," Bowling said. "The great thing is Treyarch proved that you can have an awesome experience on the Wii with Call of Duty. They'll actually be handling that for Modern Warfare 3."
Treyarch is no stranger to developing Call of Duty games for the Wii. The Santa Monica studio was responsible for the Nintendo console iterations of 2009's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Reflex and last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops on the Wii.
This move brings the number of development teams working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to four. Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games are working on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the title, while Beachhead Studios is handling Call of Duty: Elite, the social service behind the upcoming shooter.
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.
