The Nintendo US President, Reggie Fils-Aime, hopes that Rockstar’s extremely anticipated Grand Theft Auto V, will be released on the Wii U as well. Reggie revealed in an interview to MTV, that there is every possibility that Nintendo’s first HD console will be running GTA V in the future:
“The folks there have said very nice public comments about the Wii U,” he explained.
“In the end, it is Nintendo’s responsibility to have a large installed base, to have development tools that help the developers and publishers create great content, and essentially create an environment where teams like Rockstar can bring their very best content to our platform, and if we do that hopefully the very best content throughout the entire industry will show up on Wii U.”
In an interview with IGN, Rockstar’s vice president, Dan Houser, told them that, for now, GTA V is slated to debut only on the Xbox 360 and PS 3:
“Everything else is up for consideration,” Houser revealed. “That’s all I can give you. The main thing is we are not… we are a third-party publisher. We’re not Nintendo, we’re not Sony, we’re not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there’s the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market.”
