Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has revealed that Crysis 3 didn’t come to Wii U due to a lack of business support from Nintendo and EA. Yerli also revealed that they did in fact have Crysis 3 up and running on Wii U and were extremely close to releasing it. However, the game was never released due to the souring relationship between EA and Nintendo.
“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.”
