Techland Explain Why Dead Island: Riptide Isn't Releasing On Nintendo Wii U

Techland has explained that Dead Island: Riptide, which is due to release on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, won't be coming to the Wii U because they preferred to spend more time refining the current generation versions. (Dead Island Riptide, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I almost feel bad for nintendo... :S I wonder if they'll do any more consoles after this one..
mephman  +   739d ago
I'm sure they will be fine. I think most consoles have a difficult beginning, but not having Dead Island: Riptide won't change much.

Yes, they will.

In other words 'we are not wasting time or money on a console that will be dead in a year'...

How many games is that now?

Didn't Reggie say the Wii U was going to be heavily supported by 3rd party developers?

What's your excuse now Reggie?

The right time for a Zombie U Fit instead.

This game and Saint Row IV aren't marvels, Nintendo must launch their stars franchises like Zelda, Metroid, Starfox and procure the release of great games like GTA V o MGS V.

Allow me to paraphrase the article:

"Because Wii U sucks and is a last generation console that can barely produce visuals on par with Xbox 360 and PS3."

and look this guy has 5 bubbles. Seems so un fanboy like, don't it? Really nick5538 facts don't support that but it's your totally nonbiased opinion.

Trolls are out in full force today. Time to put on my troll raincoat, it's raining cats and trolls.

Big deal the first dead island was awful and was a ruined idea and instead of just retry they make it exactly the same. At least from what i have seen. This game just proofs anything with zombies can sell no matter how crappy and mediocre it is.
