Splinter Cell: Blacklist will release on Wii U this August alongside the previously announced Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions, Nintendo has confirmed.

Though Ubisoft has yet to announce specific functionality, the Wii U version of Blacklist will contain GamePad-specific gameplay features not found in the other versions, alongside "motion-based inputs".

A Wii U version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist has been rumoured to be in development since June last year, when US retailer Best Buy listed the product on its website.

And the game could be headed to next-generation systems, too, after Ubisoft Toronto head Jade Raymond chose not to rule out the possibility of the game appearing on the next Xbox or PS4.

"We have a very good PC version coming out that's been announced," Raymond told IGN. "So I can't say that's not something we consider, obviously. The PC version has a lot of optimized graphics and a lot of other optimized features. It's also a version where we're planning on some additional features for online.

"There's some additional community and other online features we won't have in the console versions. It's 360, PS3, and PC. Those are the three that we're focused on right now. The next ones, we'll just have to see. Let's get these out the door first."
