Hollenshead: IdTech 5 “too much” for Wii, uncertain on Wii U

Tuesday, 9th August 2011 01:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Todd Hollenshead has said id won’t bring a “crippled” port of RAGE to Wii, and played coy on the possibility of Wii U support.

“For RAGE, as much as Nintendo might not like to hear this, id Tech 5 is too much tech for the Wii,” the id Software boss told IGN at QuakeCon. “We’re not doing a crappy version of RAGE on the Wii.”

Hollenshead said id was happy to release on other platforms because “you get all of it” on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“All the media’s the same,” he said. “We didn’t make the crippled version that somebody wishes they had some other platform to play on.”

Hollenshead couldn’t confirm the studio will support the Wii U, but didn’t rule it out.

“I haven’t really had a chance to sit down with [John] Carmack about it, because it’s his opinion that matters,” he said of the Wii U.

“From what Nintendo is saying, it looks interesting, but it still remains to be seen how it fits within how id Tech 5 would run on it, is the audience right for us to develop games on that platform.”

RAGE is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October.

Thanks, GamesRadar.

    Did anyone ever expect a Wii version? Or want one, for that matter?
