Is the Wii not getting the same loving from Treyarch and Activision when it comes to post-release content for Call of Duty: Black Ops? Supposedly, that shouldn't be the case, but in actuality, it seems to be the unfortunate reality.

Previously, DLC support was reassured by the devs and publisher for the Wii version of the first person shooter. It was even printed in the manual that DLC add-ons would be coming their way.
Activision seems to have made a turn-around, though, as they indicated in their earnings report that they don't really have plans right now of sending out DLC for the Wii.
So said Activision:
"On February 1, 2011, Activision Publishing released Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike, the first add-on pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, on Xbox Live. The map pack set new Xbox Live records with more than 1.4 million downloads in the first 24 hours, an increase of more than 25% over last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package. The map pack also will be available on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system on March 3, 2011 and on the PC later in the quarter."
Glaringly absent from the mentionables was the Wii console. We know for a fact that the PS3 is scheduled to get the First Strike DLC on March 3, while the PC is to follow suit. The Wii, meanwhile, does not even get a nod of acknowledgment.
Wii gamers are still hoping that Activision will follow-through with their promise of additional DLCs. We're also waiting for the devs and publisher to bring closure to this floating question of whether or not they have fully decided to drop DLC support for the Wi.
We'll keep you posted.

Activision seems to have made a turn-around, though, as they indicated in their earnings report that they don't really have plans right now of sending out DLC for the Wii. It's not what they said, actually. It was more of what they did not say.


 

 

Activision's telling statement went like this:



 

 

"On February 1, 2011, Activision Publishing released Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike, the first add-on pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, on Xbox Live.
