More news out of the recent QuakeCon: Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, has confirmed to Joystiq that there are no plans to bring Bethesda’s upcoming line-up to Nintendo’s latest console. This means that any Wii U owners hoping to play Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Elder Scrolls Online and The Evil Within are going to be disappointed.
“None of the game’s we’ve announced are being developed for the Wii U, so it’s guaranteed that none of those games are coming to Wii U.” Offering clarification, Hines said that this decision was “largely a hardware thing” and that Bethesda aims to make games for “whatever platforms will support them as developed”. Hines did not point to low hardware sales as the reason for Bethesda’s decision.
Hines did clarify that this wasn’t Bethesda’s final ruling on Nintendo’s hardware, and that there might be Bethesda games for the Wii U in the future, just not their current line-up.
