Crysis 3 will not come to Wii U. Crytek CEO and founder Cevat Yerli told Digital Spy that a "business drive" between Electronic Arts and Nintendo is keeping the upcoming shooter off Nintendo's first high-definition console.
"There has been discussions between Nintendo and EA and Crytek, but the bottom line is that there's not enough business drive in it," Yerli said. "It's a business decision between EA and Nintendo. 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."
Crysis 3 was never a sure thing for release on the Wii U. In May 2012, Crytek director of creative development Rasmus Hoejengaard said there was "not a fat chance" that Crysis 3 would ever ship for the Wii U. That wasn't the end of the story, though, as Yerli clarified two months later that the game was possible 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 on February 19, 2013. For more on Crysis 3, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
