There is a possibility that Crysis 3 will be making its way to the newest Nintendo console. This kind of story may seem like a positive for Nintendo, but when you really look at it, consider Crysis 3 – a quintessential “multiplatform” title. This just highlights the fact that multiplatform now refers to only the PS3 and the Xbox 360, and Nintendo’s consoles kind of disappear in the background.
Crytek producer Mike Read said in a recent CVG interview, “I wouldn’t say there’s no chance. I wouldn’t say no chance. I mean the Wii U still doesn’t have any kind of release [date] attached to it at this point. Who knows what the future will bring with it. I can definitely say that we are working with Nintendo, and that’s about all I can say on that front.”
So the possibility of a Wii U version of Crysis 3 definitely exists. It is of course fully confirmed on the Xbox 360 and PS3. This discussion is especially pertinent when you consider franchises like Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed are also making waves among the Nintendo front. But as the Wii U gets an increasing level of prominence, this kind of third-party support becomes more and more relevant. Of course, nothing from Crytek has been confirmed, but this is something to watch.
