Treyarch remains commited to Wii


Speaking to Gamerzines at a recent event, Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia has told the online magazine that his studio is "committed" to Wii.

Lamia explained that although a lot of work and investment is required in order for Treyarch to get the best out of Nintendo’s machine, the developer will do all it can to make the Wii game  “as similar as possible” to the 360 and PS3 versions.

"The expectation is 'that game on that platform', even though we know objectively the platform is not the same.”

"Whereas we're able to create the same assets that can be used on PC, PS3 and 360, we actually have to do quite a bit of work on both the technology and assets for Wii. The investment is heavy to get it working on the Wii, but we're committed to it as we were with Modern Warfare, World at War and Call of Duty 3.

"It'll be our fourth Wii shooter. Is there another team that's put out four Wii shooters? There probably is, but certainly not online. And look, we have a huge online fanbase and they're playing it over and over. We obviously want to please that audience - the Wii has been great."

Community Manager Josh Olin also added his thoughts saying,

"The Wii community is very vocal,

"People think that they're just casual gamers and don't go on forums, but they can be very opinionated."

Call of Duty: Black Ops is due for release on Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 9.
