Modern Warfare 3 hitting Wii 'this year'

Wii gamers won't be waiting long for Activision's latest shooter

Activision has confirmed during an investors earnings call today that the Wii version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released this year.


The Wii crowd have been somewhat left out of previous Modern Warfare releases, with CoD 4: Modern Warfare arriving on the platform a full two years later than the HD consoles, and Modern Warfare 2 not seeing a Wii release at all.

While Activision confirmed the Wii release, it didn't go into details on the studio in charge of development for the Wii platform, or whether it would be compatible with the new Call of Duty Elite service.

Modern Warfare 3 will be released on 360, PS3 and PC on November 8.
