Treyarch handling Wii version of Modern Warfare 3

Screen-pointing and friend-coding to be handled by Black Ops devs

Not content with making 2010's biggest games in the form of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Treyarch has been confirmed to develop the title Activision hopes will basically sell in quantities that will end the world as we know it, Modern Warfare 3. While Infinity Ward turn out the game proper, Treyarch will be converting the title to Wii, using the experience learned on its previous Wii CoD titles, Modern Warfare Reflex and Black Ops.

Above: Here's how Treyarch did with its last Modern Warfare on Wii

“Treyarch proved that you can have an awesome experience on the Wii with Call of Duty,” Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling told theOne of Swordspodcast. Well,Treyarch at least proved that you can have an experience on the Wii playing something with “Call of Duty” in the title, but let's not split hairs. With the Wii port of Black Ops having garnered favorable comparisons to other versions (we deemed itdecent), it remains to be seen whether Treyarch proves as competent at bringing someone else's content onto the platform as it is porting over its own material. Do you have high hopes for the port?
