Battlefield 4 will not be coming to the Nintendo Wii U despite DICE announcing the game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Battlfield 4 creative director Lars Gustavsson explained skipping a Wii U version of the game came down to the team wanting to “ensure that [they] deliver something good,” instead of “risking” the quality of the project by putting resources into the Wii U version which would be new ground for DICE.
“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience,” said Gustavsson on a Wii U version of the game . “Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focus on what you do well and what you know well, and ensure that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it.
“I’d rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].”
Battlefield 4 marks itself as the latest AAA title not making its way to Wii U joining the likes of Dead Island Riptide and Saints Row IV.
Whilst Battlefield 4 is coming to PS3, X360 and PC, a next generation version is coming but it’s unclear whether the game will be on the PlayStation 4, the 720 or both. Last month, EA Labels President Frank Gibeau spoke of EA’s working with next-gen technology and said they “Expect more announcements on new platforms.”
Battlefield 4 will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this Autumn.
