Crytek, the developer of Crysis 3, had their game running on the Wii U and it was pretty close to launching as well. So I bet you’re wondering why it did not see the light of day? Well Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli stated that “there was a lack of business support between Nintendo and EA”. So eventually the game was canceled for Wii U since Crytek wasn’t in a position to publish the game.
Here is the full quote “We did have Crysis 3 running on the Wii U. We were very close to launching it. But there was a lack of business support between Nintendo and EA on that. Since we as a company couldn’t launch on the Wii U ourselves — we don’t have a publishing license — Crysis 3 on Wii U had to die.”
My opinion on all of this is that this is an utter disappointment. This game could have been a great addition to Nintendo’s third party support and it is a shame that Nintendo and EA couldn’t work out a deal of some sort. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
