Crytek have revealed that Crysis 3 won't grace Nintendo's new console, even though they want it to.
"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," Crytek CEO Cervat Yerli explained to 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?"
"It's a business decision between EA and Nintendo," he reiterated. "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."
We're rather disappointed about this, simply because CryEngine 3 would have made for an interesting graphical benchmark for the Wii U. Still, I daresay that many Wii U owners will be too busy playing Rayman Legends to notice...
