Forums - Nintendo Discussion - 'Crysis 3' not coming to Wii U due to lack of "business drive"

Crysis 3 won't receive a Wii U version, it has been confirmed.

Despite being a "possibility" last year, CEO and founder of Crytek Cevat Yerli said "there is no Wii U version" due to a lack of "business drive" between publisher EA and Nintendo.


"There has been discussions between Nintendo and EA and Crytek, but the bottom line is that there is that there's not enough business drive in it," he told Digital Spy.

"It's a purely business decision. I'd love to see it on Wii U, but what I love to see and what gets done at the end of the day are two different things. Even so, I could initiate it but someone has to sell it, right?"

Yerli added: "It's a business decision between EA and Nintendo. If that business decision 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."



Last year Yerli confirmed that a Wii U game was in development using CryEngine 3.

However, at the time he said that the game was not being made by Crytek, and would instead be the work of an unnamed "respected developer".

Crysis 3 will launch on February 19 in North America and on February 22 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

It sucks, If any game could have showed the power of the Wii U, I think Crysis 3 could've been the one. Hopefully Nintendo and EA get together and make something happen.

EA is still mad at Nintendo? Way to go -_-

Sounds to me like something equivalent to that Operation Rainfall thing needs to be started, targeted at EA.

Can some please smack EA in the head.

Yay!!!

Here we go again...

Companies aren't people; they don't get "mad" at one another. One thing drives companies - money. Simply put, there are not enough users of the Wii U to warrant making a port. 



I don't understand why it's not coming, there are so many other EA titles coming to the console. Even if Crysis 3 came later, it would be able to show case the real power of the system and show those naysayers that is more than capable to handle Crysis 3, but better than the seventh generation consoles. That is if it is optimized right and ported with the gamepad in mind.




And in other news, grass is green..

It is naive to think that company decisions only based on facts and "where the money is". They are made by people. And people could be huffish or angry.

Fact is that EA wanted Nintendo to make Origin the only Wii U shop system. But Nintendo refused. Some people at EA are surely mad about Nintendo.
