Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare platforms confirmed; Sledgehammer not making PS3 and 360 versions

The next Call of Duty won’t be released on Wii U, it seems.

Amazon listings confirm Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC but not for Nintendo’s machine. We already knew the game will be released on November 4th.

"Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is being developed specifically for next gen consoles and PC," Activision said in a press release. "This is the first iteration of Activision’s expanded three-year development cycle allowing the debut lead title from Sledgehammer Games an added year of studio development.

"With the expanded production capabilities, Sledgehammer Games is able to create an astonishing new, next generation experience, featuring an array of technical advancements from the sights and sounds that create a near photorealistic world unlike any Call of Duty before, to new performance capture and facial animation technologies that deliver lifelike characters, to a rich and immersive story that brings the fiction to life."

Further to this Videogamer says that the latest issue of GameInformer reveals that Sledgehammer is not developing the Xbox 360 or PS3 SKUs, saying:

"PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners don’t have to worry about Activision forgetting them, as Advanced Warfare will be brought to the last generation of consoles as well. Sledgehammer will not be handling the development, however. Activision has yet to announce the studio behind these versions of the game."

Speculation suggests that High Moon Studios, of Transformers fame, may be handling the last-gen ports.
