No Crysis 3 on Wii U
Developer Crytek recently announced Crysis 3, the third installment in the Crysis series. However, despite supporting the Wii U with its CryEngine 3, Crytek’s Rasmus Hoejengaard, Director of Creative Development, told Destructoid that Crysis 3 won’t be coming to the Wii U. Specifically, Hoejengaard said, “there’s not a fat chance of Crysis 3 on Wii U”.
Crysis 3 will be released in 2013, around the time when the new generation of consoles are expected to launch: the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4. It will be powered by the same CryEngine 3 game engine as Crysis 2. Last year, CryTek said that this very engine would be available and run on the Wii U. CryTek’s Anvi Yerli said in an interview last year that Wii U’s specs are “very good“. Despite the kind words for the Wii U, it appears CryTek won’t be supporting the console with games, only with technology.
