Bethesda doesn’t have any immediate plans to bring their games to the Wii U. The Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls VI studio has recently confirmed that they have zero games in the works for Nintendo’s fledgling console. According to Pete Hines, this is due to a “number of factors”.
In an interview with MCV, Hines explained that the Wii U is “not something 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.”
It’s probably a pretty safe bet to put money down on the return of Fallout and The Elder Scrolls with the turn of a new generation, but their more immediate releases will miss the platform as well. While Xbox and PlayStation will see a console release of The Elder Scrolls Online, the Wii U will not. The same goes for Wolfenstein: The New Order and Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within; neither will arrive on the Wii U.
Bethesda is just the last third party developer to come out and express their concerns about developing for the Wii U.
