Treyarch to develop Wii version of Modern Warfare 3

Posted on Aug 7 2011 - 10:44am by Thomas Sharp

Activision has announced that the first person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be coming to the Nintendo Wii, alongside its PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC iterations on November 8th.

Treyarch, the developers of the ultra successful Call of Duty: Black Ops, will be ones responsible for developing the Wii version of Modern Warfare 3. The news comes from Robert Bowling, the creative strategist at Infinity Ward, who announced the news during a podcast with Activision’s social media manager Dan Amrich.

“The Wii has grown so much as a platform,” said Bowling. “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 has tons of experience with the Nintendo Wii platform, having handled the Nintendo versions of Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as developing the Wii game Spiderman: Web of Shadows.

This move increased the number of Modern Warfare 3 developers to four. Sledgehammer and Infinity Ward are working on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game, while Beachhead Studios is working on the Call of Duty: Elite, the upcoming shooter’s social service.

With the game’s release on the Wii platform, it is expected to see Modern Warfare 3 break sales records for another year. Modern Warfare 3 will be launched for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii on November 8th this year.

Which platform do you prefer, Xbox, PS3 or Wii?

    mw3 will destroy battlefield. i’m excited to see it announced for the nintendo wii and i just read at modern warfare 3 that it will also be released on nintendo ds. I wonder if it will see light on 3ds. Anyone know if they’re keeping bots for multiplayer offline? I think that was a great implement, despite them taking that feature from killzone.
