Activision Says Wii U Version of Black Ops 2 Not Natively 1080p

Nintendo fans have no doubt been excited about Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II making its way onto the Nintendo Wii U next month (Nov. 18 to be exact).

However, after the publisher had previously stated that the game could run at 60fps and at 1080p, gamers have been asking the question as to whether or not that 1080p is native or if the console will upconvert it.

Today, an Activision spokesperson confirmed to us via email that “The game is not natively 1080p”, which of course means that it’s the Wii U that will be able to upconvert it, since the system supports the format.

You can also read up on our hands-on preview of the game here.

    Rayman can you please post up the Email you received. This is pretty big news with no real proof.. The PR rep said twice it’s 1080p Can you clarify?

  • Gregory William Wampler October 12, 2012 at 7:54 PM

    Uh oh….queue the Wii U haters….

  • x13 October 12, 2012 at 8:00 PM

    what is it rendered at then?

    • Ramon Aranda October 12, 2012 at 8:05 PM

      My guess is 720p but I’ll have to ask.

  • Andres Alfonso October 12, 2012 at 8:05 PM

    Ramon can you please ask them if there is going to be a Hardend copy? Thanks

  • James Plus Rachel October 13, 2012 at 1:38 AM

    No real proof since we can’t see their email address, only yours. Why would you purposefully snip that off?

    • Ramon Aranda October 13, 2012 at 8:15 AM

      James I cut off her email address because the public doesn’t need to see her email address…it is for media use only and the last thing they need is gamers bombarding their email. Just relax dude it’s not the end of the world.

  • Ramon Aranda October 13, 2012 at 8:16 AM

    I’m sure if I left her email visible there would still be folks who say its a fake email address or something because she wouldn’t reply to emails from the public.

    I pretty sure info like this is contradicting what they have on the web.

    I would expect, people are asking if it is native 1080P, if not what is it running at.

    Have they ever stated how much the current gen systems are running at sub-HD and upscalled?

    kinda rough but since this wasn’t made ground up for wiiu it’s kinda expected.

  • Skilltone October 13, 2012 at 9:09 AM

    Ramon, I will give you 100 internet points if you ask him if the care package edition will be available for wiiu.

    • Ramon Aranda October 13, 2012 at 9:15 AM

      Lol Skill…I just sent an email about it…I’m sure I won’t get a response until Monday though. I’ll be sure to post about it.

      • Skilltone October 27, 2012 at 4:26 PM

        Any word back yet?

  • Ramon Aranda October 13, 2012 at 9:18 AM

    @Omegas I wouldn’t be surprised if the demo I played was running at 1080p upconverted because it did look really good. I think people are really going to enjoy it regardless of a lack of native 1080p. Frame rate was top notch too.

  • levenson merilus October 13, 2012 at 11:57 AM

    the Email doesn’t show any hard evidence,it looks unbelievable even after treyarch themselves said it when they was showing it off at E3

  • Ramon Aranda October 13, 2012 at 3:54 PM

    Nintendo also removed mention of 1080p for New Super Mario Bros U on the gane’s official website…

  • Andres Alfonso October 13, 2012 at 6:20 PM

    And if we’re geting double XP weekend please

  • Ted R. October 14, 2012 at 8:49 AM

    You removed “news” because they requested it? Are you a gaming news site, or a press release site? I’ve lost enough respect with MSM.. seeing you do things like removing email is just sickening. It’s time to stand up for yourself andreport the whole truth, with evidence to support them… Not only what and how they want you to report. Grow a pair.

    • Ramon Aranda October 14, 2012 at 9:03 AM

      Are you stupid? We didn’t remove “news” we removed an email screenshot which isn’t necessarily appropriate to post in the first place; just done to shut up idiots like you who think we’re lying.

  • ubernaut October 14, 2012 at 9:07 AM

    some people are never happy :/

  • Ramon Aranda October 14, 2012 at 9:14 AM

    I don’t get why people can’t believe something like “not natively in 1080p”. It’s not a game breaker; we’re not claiming the game got cancelled, we’re just stating the answer to a simple question some readers had about the game’s resolution that we asked for them. If you can’t deal with the answer and it breaks your heart, deal with it.

  • eec84 October 15, 2012 at 1:51 PM

    Deal breaker for me. No more Wii U. I’m canceling all 5 pre-orders. LOL!

  • Bob October 15, 2012 at 5:11 PM

    Not surprising considering the PS3 and 360 versions aren’t even natively 720p.

  • Gamer April 25, 2018 at 9:53 PM

    So WIII will work less as it will not have to render high quality
