Crysis 3 on Wii U unlikely says Crytek

by Bill Hess on April 24, 2012


With Nintendo giving more attention to third party and core titles with its upcoming Wii U, it would only be fair to assume that many of the big third party titles of late 2012/13 and beyond, would grace the console.  Crysis 3 will likely be one of the biggest multiplatform titles of 2013, but it appears that it will not be heading to Nintendo’s next console.

While Crytek didn’t come out and say it, a director from the development house told Destructoid that there’s “not a fat chance” of Crysis coming to Wii U.  “I don’t think it’s going to be possible,” Rasmus Hoejengaard explained. “It’s not in the cards.”

Are we to assume that Crysis 3 isn’t coming to the Wii U because of technical shortcomings of the console?  Or is it simply a matter of the developers not wanting to port the game to another system?  Hoejengaard did also tell reporters that development for Crysis 3 started with the latest iteration of Crysis 2 and worked its way from there.

If the Wii U becomes a sensation with core gamers, you could see Crytek singing a different tune, as they likely wouldn’t give up the opportunity to make more cash from the game.  We’ll have to wait and see, but for now, “Fat Chance” on Crysis 3 for Nintendo Wii U.

Crytek did release the first gameplay footage of Crysis 3 earlier today, and its a remarkably good looking title.  With the developer already claiming the game to be the spirtual successor to the original Crysis, 2013 can’t come fast enough for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 releases.

      Why are you happy that a game might might be coming out on a system you never would have purchased anyway?

      • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

        Its time Nintendo learnt its place

          Its one thing not to like Nintendo’s systems or games, but having a vendetta against Nintendo to the point where you’re rooting and cheering on the internet and consider it a personal victory on your behalf that that a specific video game wont appear on a Nintendo system, it just makes you sound like a desperate partisan who cares about video games for reasons that have nothing to do with actually having fun.

          • Seriously…

            Bluewave, you need to get laid.

            ??? You both need to get laid, by what I’m seeing.

            Anyways to get back on topic, this article left out a lot of things the Interview went on about.

            It has nothing to do with tech, it’s because of the controller.

            Maybe too lazy to remap button, or whatever the problem may be. But it’s not because of the Wii U’s specs.

          • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

            Their a homosexual company that relies on gimmicks. Next you’ll be telling me mobile gaming is awesome…

          • AIRFREAK

            lmfao look at all the nintendo dissers. You guys are too young to remember all of the stuff nintendo has done for gaming. 

            Nintendo saved the game industry in 1985. They were the first to do motion control well. Well enough that both Sony and Microsoft tried to cash in with Move/Kinect. They introduced dual screen to mobile gaming and they’ll be the first to dual screen a console. They can also claim responsibility for Metroid, Zelda, Mario, etc.

            Nintendo is the only company of the big 3 with balls sufficient to radically change their target audience with every console. 

            I’m fine with Sony and Microsoft, but it’s about time Nintendo came back and put all the other consoles back in their place.

    Wow did you really come on here just to troll Nintendo? Seriously dude, you need to get a life. I couldn’t imagine being happy that a console isn’t getting a certain game! Nintendo learn it’s place? What, do you mean the best selling console this generation? 3DS kicking ass? DS kicking ass? Number 1 in software sales? Being in the industry since the early 80’s? Thats the problem with you PS1 gamers, you think you know all about gaming! You just cant appreciate wholesome fun games, too bad actually. If you tried them youd be surprised that a game doesn’t have to be CoD to be fun.

    • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

      Haha ps1 gamer? Shut the f*ck up dude you don’t know sh!t. Get the f*ck off this site

      • anon

        Great comeback, kid. Great comeback. I believe you’ve lost the argument.

      • guest

        If anyone needs to get off this site it’s you! Face it nintendo owned this gen so get the hell out of here you little troll, no one likes you nor are they on your side so stop acting like some big shot, who think  they know everything! Btw learn some proper english!

        • Wh1pL4shL1ve

          Nintendo owned this gen? Not really lol.

          • Victor

            Actually they did. 30+ million more hardware sales and an even greater difference in software sales.

    Awww did I hit a sore spot? Based on your comments YOUR the one that doesnt know shit.I love the word gimmick…all Sony fanboys need to take Sony’s c@ck out of their mouth in order to say that. Your giving yourself away, that was Sony propaganda that came out with that word for Nintendo. Your just a sheep dude….you mad bro?

    • IHATEHIPSTERSSS

      I don’t know why you keep calling me a Sony fanboy, its pretty f*ckin stupid and your obviously new to this site. Ever since William changed the comment system there’s been an onslaught of 12 year old wii fans. Anyways it just shows you know nothing and all I can say is I feel sorry for your parents

      • AIRFREAK

        Will changing to DISQUS has nothing to do with this. The fact of the matter is, nintendo has a history of dominating the game industry. Nintendo broke off and chased the casual market with the Wii, but the Wii U is bringing nintendo back to the traditional market. If your vision of nintendo is a casual company based on gimmicks, you’re obviously a child. 

    • Victor

      Fun fact. Gimmick means that there is something added to the value of a oroduct to make it more appealing. Therefore, online play is a gimmick, HD graphics are a gimmick, Kinect is a gimmick, analogue sticks are a gimmick. See my point. Usually gimmicks are very good for the product we buy. Every hardware developer uses them on a daily basis. It works and rocks.

       @IHATEHIPSTERSSS:disqus

      you should know by now that nobody likes you. youre pathetic, you know that?

  • Buckymills

    Well that just goes to show your age, I’m married. Keep trying you’ll get a good one some day

  • Victor

    Confused nintendo fan here. Note, not fanboy just fan. No company deserves my unquestioned loyalty. Anyway, Crytek did come out and say the hardware was quite powerful and they were easily able to get their engine up and running on it. So, is it money issues or are they too lazy to port? Ugh 3rd party developers sadden me from time to time.

  • MrHertz

    maybe the developers didnt like the idea of pink hearts and gift boxes coming out of enemy´s guts when taking a bullet rain.

    or maybe no characters sound like a freaking out japanese woman

    or maybe the dialogues dont have “mamma miaa”…..” mariooooo “

    • Buckymills

      Have you looked at the list of games announced for the WiiU there’s plenty of blood and guts even tho that’s not needed to make a great enjoyable game

  • http://www.facebook.com/venomhotboy Omar Marshall

    The Destructoid guys are morons, because “NOT a fat chance” (emphasis
    mine) means that it’s very likely to be on the Wii U. It’s a double
    negative statement, which is a positive statement.
