It was previously unknown if Activision would continue to support the Wii U given its slow pick-up at retail last year, but yesterday's announcement that Call of Duty: Ghosts is coming to Wii U put those fears to rest.

Alongside Call of Duty, Activision confirmed it will release five more Wii U games this autumn. Activision's Wii U line-up this year is set to include: Angry Birds Trilogy, Angry Birds Star Wars, Skylanders Swap Force, Wipeout Create & Crash, Spongebob Squarepants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge, and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

This is just the beginning, as Activision exec Eric Hirshberg stated during a press release regarding Activision's Wii U policy that they are "committed" to Nintendo's struggling console.

"As we have said before, we're committed to doing everything we can to support the Wii U, which is why we're excited to be bringing some of the most popular entertainment franchises in the world to the platform this year. The Call of Duty franchise continues to be one of the most powerful forces in gaming and Skylanders continues to enchant new fans around the world. Our studios have been hard at work creating brand new immersive experiences perfectly suited to the Wii U platform and our fall lineup has something for everyone." - Eric Hirshberg

While these may not be the most exciting games coming to the system, it is good to see a big company like Activision helping the Wii U, especially when rival companies, like EA, are giving very little support. Are you glad that Activision is supporting the console? Leave a comment and let us know!
