Call of Duty: Black Ops for the Wii will be getting a headset and voice chat, according to an interview with Dan Suarez, the executive producer for Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Suarez said: “We’re doing some new and exciting things where we’ve actually created a new headset, so people can play Call of Duty: Black Ops with VoIP on the Wii. No other games are doing this right now, and we’ve partnered with Nintendo to do it.”
Staying on the topic of Call of Duty: Black Ops, there’s also news that COD points may be extended so that players can transport them through to future iterations of Call of Duty.
David Vonderhaa from Call of Duty: Black Ops creators Treyarch, said: “We believe that a lot of the stuff that you’re doing in the game could carry over to future games, but we have to establish something really strong and positive right now to be sure it’s worth carrying over…It’s an economy so these are things that are possible. These are things that we’ve bounced around, but there’s no concrete plans on what to do with this next.”
There’s no confirmation on whether gamers playing Call of Duty: Black Ops on the Wii will be able to use Wii speak, instead of a headset, but we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground so watch this space.
