Wolfenstein Developer Says No Plans To Bring Game To Wii U

wolfenstein_new_orderLast month Bethesda announced plans to bring Wolfenstein: The New Order to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next generation consoles. However, they also hinted at the possibility that it could come to the Wii U after Pete Hines said in an interview: “We (intentionally) aren’t being specific on what platforms “next-gen” covers. Stay tuned.” But according to the game’s developer Machine Games it, unfortunately, will not be coming to the Wii U.

In an interview with Wolfenstein’s narrative developer Tommy Björk he announced that it would be available in the last quarter of the year, but when asked about it coming to the Wii U, he first hesitated, then gave a resounding ‘no’. You can see the full interview in the video here, and at the five-minute mark you can see where Björk says there are no plans to bring  the game to the Wii U.

      1. The game was coming it was just that Nintendo did not aproved it until the bugs where fix and knowing bethesda thats the reason they cancel it.

  1. INB4 all the, “we don’t want another crappy FPS on the Wii U” comments.

    That’s fine anyway, not every single game has to span every single system. We knew this would happen with the Wii U. Anyone who got a Wii U expecting third party support from everyone was fooling themselves.

    2. They promised us great 3rd party support. Nintendo even showed Ken Levine from Bioshock at E3 2011 praising the Wii U, but 2 years later Wii U doesn’t get Bioshock Infinite. I personally aren’t interested in the Mario games (no offense intended to people that love those games). Nintendo used to make other types of games back in the day for the ones that aren’t interested in the Mario games, Rare (Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Conker,etc).,Left Field (Excitebike64),Silicon Knights (Eternal Darkness), even the special relationship with Factor 5 they had was great (the Rogue Squadron games). They put Retro to make a Donkey Kong game, why couldn’t they work on a Metroid game or some new IP and leave the Donkey Kong for another studio to work on. All they showed are games that don’t appeal to me.
      Games like “The Division” and “The Crew” interest me a lot more than anything Nintendo showed at E3. I have no choice but to get a PS4 so I can play all those games that I am tired of missing out on. I guess if you love Pokemon and Mario and whatnot you are happy with Nintendo.(again, no offense intended for anyone that loves those games).

      1. You cant blame Nintendo for what third partys are doing. Especialy with the foul play they are showing. You want a ps4 thats ok but remember there games coming to those consoles that no matter how big the installed base of the other console are or how little the wiiu are they would have actualy have sold better on wiiu.

        1. I think that it is almost entirely Nintendo’s fault. (Maybe Not EA’s temper tantrum) Nintendo failed to sell the WiiU, plain and simple. If the WiiU sold more, there would be more 3rd part games coming.

      2. AGREED, i was so disappointed with the retro studios announcement, why on earth it should take 2 to 3 years to make a 2D donkey kong game i will never understand, for example look at the game trine 2, that even though running on a 2d axix, still looks amazing, why are Nintendo 2d games just so 90’s? even rayman origins and rayman legends shit all over Nintendo’s 2d offerings from the last few years, its plain laziness, its that simple, why is it other companies who make 2d games can still make 2d games which look so much better then Nintendo made ones? i don’t mind 2d games, i grew up playing them, as i have said i have been gaming over 30yrs, but when i see Nintendo milking the franchises, and making yet another 2d game, and a bad one at that, then whats the point? i know the 2d made Nintendo games play good, but what about the production value? rayman and trine 2 blow everything away that Nintendo has done as of late.

        And then theirs the fact that so far, even though wii u is a hd ready console so far all we have gotten from Nintendo on it are games which barely look any better then wii games, WTF?? retro should not be wasted on another 2d donkey kong game, they should have gotten some one else to do it while retro worked on a true hd 3d game which will show everyone what wii uis capable of, Nintendo when will u wake up!!

        i cant wait for my PS4, its going to be so AWESOME! its nice to see SONY step up to the level that they were at in the PS2 AND PS1 days! take it easy but hurt nintendrones, i am entitled to my opinion, grown ups are allowed to have different opinions, so don’t start with the shit talking online, save that for face to fact with some one, that way they can knock you the fuq out when you hurl insults!

        1. That’s strange I game on a PC and I’m looking at PS4s in exactly the same way you look at the Wii U. The PS4 is a FUCKING KID’S TOY with nothing but generic FPS after generic FPS. No backwards compatibility (which I’m sure as a long-term gamer, you’d appreciate) and no REAL choice between games. Grow up and get a real machine.

The only one that comes close is Rayman, and it still doesnt have the appeal to me like Mario or Donkey Kong do. All he sounds is like a graphics whore. By the way, Nintendo kicked ass at E3 as far as grphics go for its respective game…

      5. You can’t blame Nintendo. Ninten itself only publishes games, not make em. Plus the real blame falls on the devs themselves as they make the choice to send their game to the system or not. What’s a real shame is the fact that Ninten is going out of their way to bring as many devs as possible to the Wii U with as much facilitation as they can possibly give and yet the devs still choose to not bring their games. I’m glad for the indie devs coming with fresh ideas that the professionals seem to lack; what concerns me is how can they not think of any ways to actually utilize the gamepad? Previous examples like in ZombiU show how the gamepad can be utilize in a new that hasn’t been used yet

    Whenever we get the news about a game not coming to the wii u most of you guys just say that you dont care about so and so games but guess what these games will create a better install base for the system and those who own the system wont miss out on these games..

  9. Another day, another negative story. If you’re old enough to remember the GameCube days, history is repeating itself and Nintendo (just like in the GC generation) are too stupid, arrogant or blind to do something about it until it’s too late. I’m not interested in ONE game Nintendo has coming out. I mean, how many Mario’s do we get every year now. It used to be something special, but now it’s, meh, another Mario game. My kids and I are buying 3rd party games (Lego City, ZombiU, Batman, Need for Speed) but new ones are going away… Fast.

  17. Wow, didn’t realize that I could just leave a comment without giving any info.
    I know that this conversation is dead but can I just say: this is some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen. All the Nintendo fanboys spazzing about the Wii U, how you don’t want any other, actually good games, it’s hilarious. All Nintendo does these days is churn out sequel after sequel, pretty much just Mario and Zelda. While there are some good games (Pikmin 3 comes to mind), the Wii U is a total failure. Nintendo thought they could rope in more gullible people with stupid gimmicks like the Wii, but it turns out an underpowered handheld/home console with a touch-pad isn’t as appealing as motion control. How can the Wii U even be classified as an 8th gen console? While it my be ‘statistically’more powerful than the 360, show me a comparison where the Wii U has the better picture. I know graphics are not the most important aspect of a game, but come on! How can Nintendo not be able to get any better hardware? Welcome to HD you’re only over 7 years late. And don’t bullshit about the Wii U being at all worth its price, I would rather pick up a ps2 or even a cheap pc than spend over 300 dollars on that piece of junk. Nintendo has sealed its own fate; the Wii U is being abandoned by all decent devs, and Nintendo is scrambling to sell more of them, enchanting gullible fanboys with HD remakes of games from 20 years ago that are still exactly the same. “Á new IP? Oh heavens no”- Everyone at Nintendo. “Just bring in another mario remake, that’ll keep em busy!”. And the saddest thing: people somehow still manage to fall for Nintendo’s BS. By the way, I’m not some 12 yr old COD fanboy, I hate COD, and have a 360, PS3 and good PC. My favourite games: The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Civ 5, Dawn of War 1 (oldie but goldie), Fallout 3, Skyrim and Oblivion and Mass Effect 2.
    I really wish someone was here to read this. Oh well.
