The truth is, it’s not something that we are currently developing for. I don’t know whether that changes down the road or not. It depends on the games that we are making and how we think it aligns with that console, and how the hardware aligns with the other stuff we are making. We will see.
Legendary game studio, Bethesda has officially come out and said that they will not be making games for the Wii U. The quoted statement above is from Bethesda. In other words, exclusive Nintendo gamers will once again miss out on several AAA-titles such as The Elders Scrolls and Fallout and upcoming Prey 2.
I understand their decision as Bethesda often likes to push gaming and Nintendo’s console is simply too weak and sells too little for them to make back the huge amounts of money they have to invest into every single title. I hope Nintendo’s next console will be pushing same hardware as Playstation 5 and Xbox 3 so that they won’t be in a bad seat for three generations in a row.
What are your thoughts on Nintendo losing several AAA-developers due to pisspoor hardware on the Wii U?
The very promising and beautiful Prey 2 is one of the titles Nintendo owners will miss out on.
