Wii U Won’t Be Joining the Fight in Battlefield 4
DICE has confirmed it has no plans to bring its Battlefield 4 to the Nintendo Wii U.
Have you heard the news? Battlefield 4 is officially official, and it’s coming out this fall. Well, except on the Wii U. In an interview with VideoGamer, BF4 creative director Lars Gustavsson explained DICE just didn’t want to stretch the team too thin with development on another console.
“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience,” said Gustavsson. “Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focus on what you do well and what you know well, and ensure that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it.”
The Wii U isn’t the only console without a planned release. Neither EA nor DICE has mentioned anything about the game coming to the PlayStation 4 (let alone the mysterious next Xbox). While there’s still a chance next generation consoles could still see Battlefield 4 this year, Wii U owners will have to look elsewhere for yet another big 2013 release.
