When Black Ops 2 arrives on the Wii U at launch, players won’t have all of the same features that are baked into the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of the game. Call of Duty: Elite, the online stat-tracking social media hub for the game, will not be available at launch for the shooter.
Activision explained in a recent statement to Kotaku, that while it’s possible that the Wii U gets support in the future, it definitely won’t be available at launch.
“We are currently evaluating options for Call of Duty Elite to support Nintendo’s Wii U game system, however Call of Duty Elite for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will not support this platform when the game launches on November 13th,” the Activision representative explained.
This news comes after Activision’s announcement that all features of the Call of Duty: Elite service will be free for all players this year. Opting for a “Season Pass” delivery service for post-launch content, Black Ops 2 DLC has only been officially announced for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Whether or not Activision plans on delivering additional content to the Wii U outside of the base game on November 18th is unclear.
Black Ops 2 will arrive on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on November 13th, with the Wii U version launching alongside the console on the 18th.
