The Evil Within

Nintendo Wii U fans won’t be happy to hear that Bethesda, who brought us Skyrim, is not planning on developing any of its upcoming games for the Wii U.

Speaking with Joystiq, Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines says the Wii U is not currently on Bethesda’s radar. He explained that hardware issues is the major contributing obstacle on why none of the recently announced Bethesda games are headed to the Nintendo console.

“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,” Hines said referencing to The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Evil Within.

“Will any future ones come out? I can’t say for sure, in our near-term focus it’s not on our radar.”

“It’s largely a hardware thing. [Our mantra is to] make the games that we want to make, on whatever platforms will support them as developed.”

Hines also claimed that “it remains to be seen what the future holds” in regards to any Bethesda titles making their way to the Wii U going forward.
