DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will not have a Wii U release. Creative Director, Lars Gustavsson, spoke to VideoGamer about the decision:
“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience. Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focus on what you do well and what you know well, and ensure that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it. I’d rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].”
Battlefield 4 will join the ranks of the recent AAA titles that didn’t come out on the Wii U such as Dead Island: Riptide and Saints Row 4. Unfortunately, Wii U owner can only cast envious eyes as the game comes to the Xbox 360, PlayStation and PC later this year.
