Treyarch making Modern Warfare 3 Wii

Black Ops dev announces new project.

Call of Duty: Black Ops creator Treyarch is developing the recently revealed Wii version of Modern Warfare 3.

"The Wii has grown so much as a platform," Infinity Ward's creative strategist Robert Bowling told One of Swords. "The great thing is Treyarch proved that you can have an awesome experience on the Wii with Call of Duty. They'll actually be handling that for Modern Warfare 3."

The veteran Call of Duty studio has plenty of experience working on the Nintendo console. It picked up Wii development duties for Infinity Ward's first Modern Warfare and created Wii versions of its own World at War and Black Ops.

The existence of a Modern Warfare 3 for Wii first came to light earlier this week. Company exec Eric Hirshberg told investors Activision had decided a version for Nintendo fans was necessary "so as not to leave any of the community out of the excitement".

Activision plans to launch Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for Wii alongside its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 brothers on 8th November.
