Publisher and platform holder disinterest prompted project cancellation
A planned Wii U version of shooter Crysis 3 has been canned after a lack of interest from EA and Nintendo, Crytek CEO and president Cevat Yerli has said.
“We did have Crysis 3 running on the Wii U. We were very close to launching it,” Yerli toldVentureBeat.
“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.”
Wii U has been subject to a number of misses when it comes to ports from PS3 and Xbox 360. Following a poor critical and consumer reception for Aliens: Colonial Marines, there was speculation that its scheduled Wii U version would be cancelled, but as it stands the title is still believed to be in production.
Nintendo has been positioning Wii U as a machine for core gamers, investing money to get titles such as Batman: Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed III and Call of Duty: Black Ops II on the system.
