'Crysis 3' not coming to Wii U due to lack of "business drive"

By
Crysis 3 won't receive a Wii U version, it has been confirmed.

Despite being a "possibility" last year, CEO and founder of Crytek Cevat Yerli said "there is no Wii U version" due to a lack of "business drive" between publisher EA and Nintendo.

"There has been discussions between Nintendo and EA and Crytek, but the bottom line is that there is that there's not enough business drive in it," he told Digital Spy.

"It's a purely business decision. I'd love to see it on Wii U, 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?"

Yerli added: "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."

Last year Yerli confirmed that a Wii U game was in development using CryEngine 3.

However, at the time he said that the game was not being made by Crytek, and would instead be the work of an unnamed "respected developer".

Crysis 3 will launch on February 19 in North America and on February 22 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
