Infinity Ward: Wii Can't Deliver Our Multi-Platform Experience

Illustration for article titled Infinity Ward: Wii Can't Deliver Our Multi-Platform Experience

The first Modern Warfare was truly a multi-platform release, appearing on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC/Mac and a Nintendo Wii port. Its sequel, Modern Warfare 2, isn't getting a Wii port just yet.


Whether Activision has a studio like Treyarch do a Wii port of Modern Warfare 2 remains to be seen, but developer Infinity Ward doesn't seem interested in putting out Wii titles for future titles.

"If we felt like we could deliver the cinematic experience we were going for on other platforms, then we would gladly move to that platform," said Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling. "Right now, we don't think the Wii can deliver the exact experience that we're doing. We like to be very equal across all platforms, and if it's not equal then we won't do it."

Bowling also hinted that the studio could work on an original IP after Modern Warfare 2 — but that doesn't mean Infinity Ward is done with Call of Duty games.

"If we do want to do something else, then we will do it," says Bowling. "We don't feel tied to making Call of Duty games." Infinity Ward, Bowling says, makes Call of Duty games because the studio has fun doing them. "And when it stops being fun, we'll move onto something else." And that something else probably won't be on the Wii.
