Battlefield 3 is one of the most anticipated upcoming games this year, and was showcased for the Wii U at E3 this summer. According to Patrick Liu, developer at DICE, they definitely see the potential of the Wii U, but are looking for a “breakthrough idea” first. Liu said in a recent interview with the Official Nintendo Magazine:
“We definitely see potential in the Wii U, but I wish I had the breakthrough idea for how to exploit the new controller. We’re definitely looking into what kind of new stuff we can do with Wii U.”
We previously reported that DICE developers still haven’t gone to work on a Wii U version of Battlefield 3, opting instead to use all their resources on finishing the game for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. According to the report, development on Battlefield 3 won’t start until mid-2012, with a release date sometime in 2013.
