According to Kotaku, noting the fact that GameStop has not listed an option to pre-order for the Wii, has came out with the thought that Modern Warfare 3 will skip the Wii.

"Wii critics may scoff, saying that Nintendo's fading console lacks the horsepower and the relevance among standard Call of Duty gamers to get a version of the new sequel. That would be a questionable conclusion. But Nintendo's system still has a user-base in the millions and has had a new Call of Duty game released each of the last three years."
— Kotaku

A GameStop representive was unable to explain why there was no option to pre-order for the Wii. While the Wii got Call of Duty: World at War and Call of Duty: Black Ops at the same time as the PC, PS3, and the xBox 360, the Wii never received Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare when the rest of the consoles received it. They only got Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare while the PC, PS3, and the xBox 360 got Modern Warfare 2.

All original releases of Modern Warfare games, including the upcoming third one, have been the product of development studio Infinity Ward. All of the Wii releases over the last few years, including the MW1 remake, were made by Treyarch, the studio behind all versions of World at War and Black Ops. Infinity Ward has had a history of not making their games for the Wii; Treyarch has. If this continues, we'd probably will see Treyarch making a Modern Warfare 2 re-make on Wii this fall, a proposition peculiar enough to be unlikely.

If the Wii is left out MW3, Nintendo fans can at least bank on the Wii's successor], expected for release before fall 2012, to be more than capable of handling whatever Call of Duty game emerges that year.
