Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not release on Wii U, Sledgehammer Games has confirmed.

A Wii U SKU had never officially been announced by Activision, but given the publisher's history of announcing Wii U ports of Call of Duty later than other platforms, there was still a chance that it could appear on Nintendo's system.

But that won't happen, Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey suggests.

"No, no WiiU," Condrey tweeted. "That was an Activision decision. We are focused on XboxOne, PS4, and PC."

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Advanced Warfare are believed to be in development at Deadpool developer High Moon Studios.

The decision not to launch on Wii U will come as another blow to Nintendo, following shortly after comments from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot earlier this week who stated that Watch Dogs would be the publisher's final Mature-rated title released for the system.

Exactly this, though I'd suggest that many Wii U owners would love to see unique mature games made just for the format.

...Meh, in all honesty I'd probably more surprised if Activision did decide to release it to Wii U, at this point. Publisher can see what sells on Wii U and what doesn't. Nintendo games sell on Wii U. Exclusives sell ok on Wii U. Indie games sell decently well on Wii U. Colourful games suited to all ages, like Just Dance, Rayman Legends, and Skylanders, sell well on Wii U. Most realistic or Mature multiplatform games that will probably be better on other platforms, don't sell so well on Wii U.

I think the common consensus at this point is, that Wii U owners don't want ports of mature multiplatform games, but would like experiences from 3rd parties tailor made for Wii U. It's up to Nintendo at this point to prove to 3rd parties that it's worth making unique experiences for the console. I think if, from this point onwards, Wii U sales stay close to PS4 and XB1 sales Nintendo will have a chance of proving that.
