Crysis 3 possible for Wii U
Producer Mike Read confirms mystery partnership with Mario maker, says first-person shooter sequel could land on new console.
Crysis 3 may find its way to Nintendo's first high-definition console, the Wii U. Speaking to CVG, Crytek producer Mike Read confirmed a mystery partnership with Nintendo and said a Wii U version of the new shooter is potentially in the cards.
"I wouldn't say there's no chance," he said. "I mean the Wii U still doesn't have any kind of release [date] attached to it at this point. Who knows what the future will bring with it. I can definitely say that we are working with Nintendo, and that's about all I can say on that front."
This news runs against the grain of what Crytek director of creative development Rasmus Hoejengaard said in May. At the time, the developer said there was "not a fat chance" that Crysis 3 would ship for the Wii U.
Crysis 3 is a first-person shooter set in 2047 New York that casts players as Prophet, a supersoldier seeking vengeance. The game is due out for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in February 2013. For more on Crysis 3, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
