Activision May Have Pulled the Plug on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [Reflex]’s Servers

It seems like multiplayer for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the original Wii may have seen its final days. According to a recent report on Reddit, the Wii port of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has lost all contact with servers. Activision has not clarified whether this is irregular server maintenance or discontinuance of the game’s multiplayer mode, but few would be surprised if Activision was pulling support from the seven year old title.

It is worth noting that Activision should be lauded about their support of the game thus far. In 2014, Nintendo discontinued their official Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (in favor of Nintendo Network), shutting down most multiplayer or online services in nearly every Wii game. At that moment, Activisoin stepped up to the plate and offered their own servers so Wii players could continue to use play the Reflex version of their hit franchise.

This isn’t to say that those still clinging to the Nintendo Wii don’t have their options — they can still play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on their antiquated consoles.
