The Elder Scrolls and Fallout publisher Bethesda has said that it has no plans to support Wii U. Bethesda’s marketing exec Pete Hines talked to Joystiq about it:
“It’s largely a hardware thing. We make the games that we want to make, on whatever platforms will support them as developed.
None of the games we’ve announced are being developed for the Wii U, so it’s guaranteed that none of those games are coming to Wii U.”
Bethesda is publishing Wolfenstein: The New Order, Shinji Mikami’s new survival horror The Evil Within and PC/next-gen role-playing MMOThe Elder Scrolls Online.
Taking The Elder Scrolls as an example, Hines said it “likely would have” been launched on current-gen platforms, but “it just wasn’t possible” due to the game’s size and scope.
“Will any future ones come out? I can’t say for sure. In our near-term focus it’s not on our radar.”
