Wii U News: Battlefield 4 skipping Wii U

Bad news or good news – well it depends on whether you hate EA or not. Dice has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will be skipping the Wii U. Yes, you heard me Battlefield will not be coming to the Wii U. In an interview with VideoGamer, creative director of Battlefield 4 Lars Gustavsson explains why the title is missing the Wii U.

Lars explains:

 “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.”

 “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].”

Honestly, this is a load of crap. The decision to skip the Wii U is a malicious attempt by EA to sabotage Nintendo. It was rumored that there was a fallout between the company before the launch of the Wii U. More evidence emerged with the revelation that Crysis 3 Wii U was canned at the last minute. Battlefield 4 skipping the Wii U is more evidence of this broken relationship.

    Load of crap that may be, but many developers have oft stated the Wii U is particularly difficult to develop for. While EA might be conspiring to sabotage Nintendo and keep core gamers playing two main systems to keep development costs down, Nintendo hasn’t done themselves any favors by creating a console so dramatically different from its competitors that 3rd party developers make the decision to steer clear.
