QA tester, named Randall, lets slip his experience working on the multiplayer component of the upcoming Call of Duty title for both the PlayStation 3 and wait for it…the Wii U. It seems the cat is out of the bag now.
There are a number of sources for the latest video game news with news.wishfree.com being one of them. But even we have to get our news from somewhere; they come from retail listings, interviews and on more than the odd occasion, from CVs and job listings.
This time around the latest story comes from the CV of Randall, who claims to have been a “QA tester for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.” His responsibilities included “QA testing on PS3 and Wii U, multiplayer testing while collaborating with team, ad hoc testing, and regression.”
The claim only confirms what everyone has already been thinking; the fact that Activision is set to make its mark on the Nintendo Wii U with Black Ops 2. The publisher has been vague when it came to announcements regarding the console but it seems that it has been looking into porting the game to the new console.
At this point one can safely assume that the game is in development for the Wii U despite the fact that Activision has not confirmed the title as yet. In fact, there were rumours that Activision were behind pushing Nintendo to introduce the Pro controller.
Activision later denied these claims but it only added fuel to the ‘Black Ops 2 on the Wii U’ fire.
The publisher also released their first trailer for Black Ops: Declassified during the recent Gamescom event in Germany. The reaction to the trailer was mixed but many agree that if any title can give the PlayStation Vita’s sales a boost then Black Ops: Declassified is that title.
The same can be said of the Nintendo Wii U version as Black Ops 2 may tempt a number of consumers to give the next generation console a chance, seeing how one of the most played console titles will be available there as well.
In fact, the aforementioned Pro Controller will make the transition on to Nintendo’s platform nearly seamless.
Whether or not the game can emulate the record breaking success of Modern Warfare 3 remains to be seen but Treyarch, the game’s developer, is looking to give it every possible chance as it has tweaked the multiplayer component to one that resembles MAG more than anything.
In short players are allocated a certain number of points and each item is worth a certain number of points or point and the player can then choose a near infinite number of load outs for their in-game character.
