A Wii U release of Crysis 3 is highly unlikely according to Crytek creative development director Rasmus Højengaard.

Speaking with Destructoid, Højengaard stated that there is “not a fat chance” the game will appear on Nintendo’s next home console.

“I don’t think it’s possible. Right now the launch platforms are PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. I don’t think it’s on the cards to do a Wii U version,” he clarified.

Any interpretation that Højengaard’s remarks refer to the power of the upcoming console should be reserved however. “I would say that our game is less reliant on technical capabilities this time around because of the setting,” Højengaard explained. “You could remove a lot of the fancy render tech and still it’d look great… we want to ensure that the experience of playing the game is not going to differ from platform to platform, only the fidelity of the visuals.”
