Crysis 3 won’t hit Wii U: it’s a business decision between EA and Nintendo, says Yerli

Monday, 7th January 2013 12:01 GMT By Dave Cook

Crysis 3 wont be heading to Wii U, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has stated in a new interview. The exec has said that the decision is out of his hands and it is the result of business dealings between EA and Nintendo.

Speaking with Digital Spy, Yerli stated that he’s love to see the game on Nintendo’s hardware, but added, “It’s a business decision between EA and Nintendo.

“I’d love to see it on Wii U,” he continued, “but what I love to see and what gets done at the end of the day are two different things. Even so, I could initiate it but someone has to sell it, right? 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.”

Regardless, Crysis 3 will drop on PC, Ps3 and Xbox 360 on February 22nd. Are you buying it? Let us know below.

Thanks Eurogamer.

    I think if you’re saying “We’d love to see it on Wii U” and EA are saying “No”, then maybe it’s time to reconsider your publishing options.

    Is it a business decision because nintendo couldn’t manage a decent successor to the wii so EA don’t want to throw money at something that sold less then the current gen consoles last month? so if the five guys that have a wii u don’t like crisis they’re screwed!

    I imagine EA are still reeling from not getting their way when they wanted to use Origin as the online network for Wii U.

    Think this is just an extension of that which has already seen poor Fifa ports as well as lack of DLC for Mass Effect 3 and no trilogy for Wii U either…
