Crytek: “Crysis 3 on Wii U Had to Die”
Crytek CEO and president Cevat Yerli has revealed that the Wii U version of Crysis 3 was cancelled due to a lack of support from Nintendo and publisher EA.
Speaking with GamesBeat, Yerli said:
“We did have Crysis 3 running on the Wii U. We were very close to launching it. But there was a lack of business support between Nintendo and EA on that. Since we as a company couldn’t launch on the Wii U ourselves – we don’t have a publishing license – Crysis 3 on Wii U had to die.”
Would you have picked up Crysis 3 on the Wii U anyhow? Game Front’s Ben Richardson reviewed the PC version of the game, offering it a modest score aided principally by the game’s visuals, which would undoubtedly be far inferior on the Wii U.
