Last week when Rockstar announced that they would be delaying the release of Grand Theft Auto 5, our tips inbox flooded with hints that a Wii U version could be in the works. We were cautiously optimistic about the news but decided not to run a story since games are delayed for many reasons and it doesn’t have to do specifically for the Wii U. Now Rockstar has officially confirmed that it has no news about the Wii U.
Rockstar says “nothing new” to share about Grand Theft Auto V for Wii U or PC.

This information should be taken lightly, since the company has not flat out stated that there will not be a Wii U version. The tweet reads that the company has nothing new to share, which means no new developments have arisen. GTA 5 is one of the most anticipated games this year, so we’re hoping that Rockstar will see the light and bring it to Wii U. Whether we’ll be waiting as long as PC users for Red Dead Redemption remains to be seen.
