The Wii U version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist will not support offline co-op, although it will support multiplayer.
"In order to ship at the same time as the other consoles, we unfortunately weren't able to delve into this feature," Splinter Cell: Blacklist producer Liu Jun told Nintendo Life. "But we think Nintendo gamers will be really excited to get the game at the same time as other consoles."
On the plus side Wii U owners will be able the use the GamePad's microphone for online co-op and multiplayer chat.
What do you think of this news? Is Wii U getting a raw deal?
