MercurySteam’s next title releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but not Wii U

Thursday, 9th January 2014 17:46 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

MercurySteam’s next title will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but not on Wii U, according to the firm’s boss Dave Cox.

Speaking with GameSpot, Cox said the team’s next project will be “completely different” from the Lords of Shadow series, but wouldn’t go into further detail on it.

Cox did state, however, that a number of ideas the team concocted which never made it into Lords of Shadow 2 could be included in the next-gen title.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 will be released on PC, PS3 and 360 on February 25 in the US and February 28 in Europe.

    ”Cox did state, however, that a number of ideas the team concocted which never made it into Lords of Shadow 2 could be included in the next-gen title. ”

    So a next gen game won’t release on a last-gen console. No surprises there. I really wonder what Nintendo is going to announce at E3.

    Yes, yes. It’s pretty much a safe assumption that no 3rd party games are coming for Wii U.

    It’d be more news-worthy if a game WAS actually coming to it.

    And so we see reiterated that Nintendo trying to be “innovative” with gimmicks like a screen controller does not compensate for the company being behind the competition by a generation in areas like graphics and network capabilities.

    Its coming to next-gen consoles, why should it come on Wii U?

    Again, great to have real next-gen only games which aren’t constrained by previous gen.

    Announcing your new title isn’t coming out for Wii U is a lot like announcing your new album isn’t going to be available on 8-track.

    If they turn Contra into another bloody FPS, I’m gonna send Dracula after them. Contra = Contra, not some generic FPS with spread gun.

    Every time a developer announces that his game won’t be on WiiU I get more pissed about Bayonetta 2.
