Battlefield 4 won't be releasing on Wii U, which is apparently down to DICE wanting to "play it safe."
“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience," DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson explained to Videogamer.
"Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focusing on what you do well and what you know well, and ensuring that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it. I’d rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].”
Feasibly, Battlefield 4 could be ported to Wii U after launch (never say never), but it's likely that DICE will have their eyes firmly set on the next-generation of Sony and Microsoft machines. It's a shame that Nintendo has let yet another big multiplatform blockbuster slip through their fingers.
