The Wii U has already seen some of the biggest multi-platform core games arrive on the console since its late-2012 launch, but not all publishers and developers are buying into the next-gen console. Crytek has confirmed that Crysis 3 will not arrive on the Wii U, and it’s not because of a lack of power or the Wii U GamePad, but because of a lack of “business drive”, according to Digital Spy.
In a recent interview with the website, Crytek’s Cevat Yerli explained why Crysis 3 would pass on the Wii U:
“It’s purely a business decision,” said Yerli. “If that business decisions doesn’t make sense, or seems to not make sense for them, it’s… not possible for us to make it. We can’t publish ourselves, and that’s the bottom line.”
This isn’t the first time that Crytek has talked about Crysis 3 on the Wii U, but last time they seemed to leave the door open for the possibility. It appears that door is now closed. Crysis 3 is due to arrive in mid-February on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
