Wii U Turn recently asked Bethesda and Arkane Studios if they had any plans to bring Dishonored to the Wii U. Their response was surprising, if not disappointing.
The quote is taken out of context. "Nothing planned at this time" leaves the possibility of a future transition to the Wii U. Right now - nothing. But the Wii U is brand new. They might, you know, be working to fix some "small" PS3 issues before working on porting to a next-generation console.
That basically means "we don't have any plans and it's most likely not happening." We usually get this answer when a developer isn't planning a port but is put on the spot with these type of questions. And besides, why would we want ANOTHER old port on the Wii U? (rhetorical question btw)
I just want to know how it's news that a company is not making a game for Wii U when they never said they were making a game for Wii U.
@guitarded It's not really. Slow news day means a better chance to get hits.
Totally agree, the title makes the implications that the game will never be coming to the Wii U. It should have said "Dishonored not being planned for the Wii U at the moment".
*title changed to be more clear
Good change. :-)
much better Zok ;)
maybe release it with DLC
Thats fine they have Bayonetta, they will be fine.
I don't think that's the point.
@PopRocks359 what you expect everyone to jump on the Wii u Bandwagon cause Nintendo is finally release a system close to what their rivals have had on the market the last seven years. has it occurred to you just may some house don't want to work on the Wii U Because there are true next gen console coming so why waste them resources. be thankful that Nintendo will be able to remake all their games for another few years & offer that instead.
No, it's because they could always port Dishonored to the Wii U at a later date. Or perhaps a GOTY edition.
So no news qualifies as news? lolk.
No - this confirms that, for now, there's no plans for Dishonored on the Wii U. It tells us that it will be a long time in the future until any Dishonored game comes to the Wii U console.
No - this is a ploy to play off no news as news, to get hits for ad revenue.
@MrAnderson Yes and in other news Sony and Microsoft may, may not, might be, or won't be announcing their next gen systems tomorrow.
They JUST announced DLC for the current versions. Why would they get to work on a Wii U version already? At least let some time go by before you ask devs these questions. This looks like a game that took some time to make,and Wii U dev kits did not even ship out all that long ago. Would not get my hopes up for this game.
Good! I'd rather have no ports of current games and just continue on with games that are on the way. That system doesn't need to be plagued with old ports! I'd rather get multiplats at the same time after the initial launch or even better NEW GAMES... Playing catch-up will only slow the Wii U down, looking forward to NEW multi-platform titles, new IP's and exclusive third-party support, is the key to being successful, not snagging old titles that have (or will be), forgotten in a couple of months...
Its got some multiplats.. COD & AC that virtually release simultaneously..
A WiiU version at the moment wouldnt be a Port or something, it would just be releasing a Month later. dont know how much it sold but i bought it on xbox and im happy with it.
Surely perspective WiiU owners have already brought and played Dishonored on 360, PS3, or PC by now? Man (or woman) cannot game by Wii alone but by every current gen system under the sun.
would be a good game to demo the features of the wiiu
Some 3rd party developers can't throw money down the well, and expect good fortune to happen instantly (metaphorically speaking).
I'm perfectly fine with a digital release on Nintendo's eshop service, which I'm sure a lot of developers will take advantage of.
Why would they want to port a great game to a console with no installed base compared to PS360 in total with a 140 mln one? Makes no sense. A console gets interesting a bit when it hits 10 to 20 mln installed base for 3rd party (if not getting paid by Nintendo do do so). So if it gets ported after 2 years one gets old stuff, nice.
Probably because the game isn't selling as well as it should be on consoles with a combined install base of 135+ million... These two systems are cluttered with so many FPS' that a game like Dishonored is guaranteed to just get lost in the shuffle. Edit: Not to mention that a WiiU sku could move at least just as many copies as the PC versions of these 3rd party games...
Hey, WiiUhaterboy, Why would anyone develop for the PS4 and 720 when then have no install base and the PS3 and 360 have 140 mil? Why did developers develop for PS3 when PS2 had 100+ million in sales?
