Sledgehammer Games has confirmed that the latest instalment in the Call of Duty franchise, Advanced Warfare, will not be coming to the Wii U.

Responding to a question asked on Twitter, Michael Condrey stated that:

Sledgehammer is new to the Call of Duty development cycle, and although the series isn’t strongly connected to the Wii U as it is with the Playstation and Xbox, Ghosts and Black Ops 2 were released on the platform. There is a lot of hype surrounding this years instalment with the game being developed by a brand new developer a side from the usual Infinity Ward or Treyarch games. High Moon Studios are developing the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions.

It features a brand new engine and provides players with exoskeletons similar to the ones found in the Tom Cruise film Edge of Tomorrow, granting them superhuman abilities. Kevin Spacey is also featured in the single player campaign as Jonathan Irons, the CEO and founder of the military organization Atlas.

This is another blow to the Nintendo console as more and more 3rd party developers are halting work on games for the console. Recently Ubisoft stated that Watchdogs would be coming to the console, however that would be the last ‘Mature’ game that they would release on the console for the time being.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is due for release on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and 4, and PC on November 4th.
