In a sign that more developers are considering the Wii U as not next-gen ready, DICE has revealed that Battlefield 4 will be skipping the console, with the game’s creative director Lars Gustavsson saying he’d rather not take the risk.
That’s what Gustavsson told Videogamer last night, news that’s sure to disappoint ardent Wii U fans.
I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience. Sometimes, at least for us, it’s focus on what you do well and what you know well, and ensure that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it.
I’d rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].
The game will release later this year, and although a release on next-gen console is yet to be confirmed, we know it’ll come to PS4 and the next Xbox.
