EA won't publish Crysis 3 on Wii U

Postby Osiris25 » 07 Jan 2013, 14:22

It makes sense, the Wii U installed base probably isn't big enough to warrant the cost of porting the title over yet. If it was a launch title it would probably have fine a people would of bought on day one for something to play on the system. Perhaps they could release a trilogy set similar to the Mass Effect set (Which I still think EA should of sold instead of ME3 only for WiiU).

Yep seems to be a continual business decision by EA to snub the WiiU.

They must have based this decision on the sales of the Mass Effect 3 on Wii U, the current Wii U install base + the cost of porting the game. Presumably the sums didn't add up, hopefully that will change in the near future though.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Crysis franchise and I don't think it's that great a loss for the Wii U anyway. I think Nintendo need to offer gamers a different set of experiences anyway, not just ports of big franchises, otherwise what's the point? We may as well jus play the 360, PS3 or PC instead - the games are cheaper and look near identical.

i own a wii u and not defending it i just think the problem is that by time these ports are done the majority of people have already played them. i own all 3 consoles and i know i wouldnt wait an extra few months to play it on my wii u when i can go get the game now and play it rather than waiting. just like the other ports. whos mental enough to pay 40 quid for a game on the wii u when they played it a year ago allready.

Ouch! That is not good news when one of the largest games publishers in the world doesnt want to publish a game for "business reasons"

Could be that EA have zero faith in the fact that Crysis 2 was blah at best and not many people would want to buy that on Wii U at all. Crytek biggest one trick ponies out these days, still with the graphics over gameplay mantra have been in the news way too often for guys who have yet to release something substantial. I think Crytek are nothing more than a studio who can do little else than showcase the power of incoming graphics cards, their games are boring and flash in the pan. Crysis 2 was yawn and I couldn't bring myself to pay full price after touching that demo.
