Deus Ex : Universe Reported To Be Coming Exclusively On Next-Gen Platforms, Will Skip WiiU

DSOGaming writes: "A lot of people wondered whether the next Deus Ex title would be a cross-platform title or not. Well, according to the LinkedIn of people working on that project, it appears that Deus Ex: Universe will be coming exclusively to next-gen platforms (in other words PC, PS4 and Xbox One)." (Deus Ex: Universe, PC, PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

Wii U is no difference from previous Nintendo consoles. Everyone buys them for the first party.. Would be stupid to buy this console for third party games, like it was stupid to buy a Wii, GameCube, N64 for third party games.
mikeslemonade  +   454d ago
3rd party on Gamecube wasn't a disparity at all. Just that there were less people to play online.

Wii U isn't current-gen so makes sense that the game isn't coming to the Wii-U.

HAHA that's so true. Nintendo always adds a Nintendo character skin to certain games like they did with NBA street and Soul Calibar.

well N64 and GC 3rd party support was so much better than wii and wiiu
abzdine  +   454d ago
it's not a question of who got better than the other, it's OVERALL Nintendo consoles compared to competition haven't had much 3rd party support.
I'm also talking Third party multiplatform games. Except with gamecube, Nintendo hardware has always been special compared to the competition, it's no exception with Wii U.
ShinMaster  +   453d ago
@ abzdine

That wasn't quite the case for NES, SNES, N64 and maybe even GC.
Nintendo's third-party support was through the roof. Of course, this was before Nintendo stopped trying.
Iltapalanyymi  +   454d ago
great news. im all in for new deus ex game.
frostypants  +   454d ago
Yep. Deus EX: Human Revolutions is one of the best and most under-appreciated games of the last few years. Anyone who still hasn't played it owes it to themselves to go grab a copy.

My only complaint about it is the pointless boss fights.
Reibooi  +   454d ago
yeah I can't wait. Honestly I'm shocked at anyone who thought the game would come to Wii U. I would bet pretty much the majority of games coming out from here out will not be coming to Wii U. Pretty much cross generation games are the only ones that have a chance to and those games will die off as the new gen gets further along.

That said I can't wait for the next Deus Ex. If it's as good or better then Human Revolution it's gonna be one incredible game. Can't wait to see what they do with the power of the next gen consoles.

Well they no longer need to soften the blow and pretend anymore . XB1 and ps4 are there and very successful at that .

Cajoling the WiiU , just in case , is a thing of the past for some . The wii U will just have its own set of potentially successful games

It is too soon to dismiss the WiiU. If after next year the WiiU doesn't sell well I'll agree that it is time to move on but not before Nintendo releases their big guns. People tend to forget that Nintendo has by far the strongest 1st party of the big 3 and that it can move a lot of hardware.
Baka-akaB  +   454d ago
I'm not dimissing the wii u . it will have it's set of successful game , exclusive or not . But it's pretty clear where lies the interest of publishers . It's already a pain obviously for them when they can't make identical versions across all consoles , they even force PC gaming to just get sometimes the same versions only in higher resolutions .

Most that move on to a new gen ... wont be making a separate wii-u build clearly technically inferior to XB1/ps4 and using it's "gimmicks" .
In that area the best chances of the wii are ps3/360 games still being produced
DialgaMarine  +   454d ago
@Imalwaysright Nintendo has the strongest 1st party by far? Mmmhmmm... And let me guess. That's based entirely off of Mario and Pokemon, isn't it? Sorry, but having 2 franchises that sell amazingly doesn't make that the best first party. It just means that Nintendo knows what audience to cater to when pushing out their rehashed shovelware. It doesn't matter what Nintendo releases in the future. People forget that the GC had all the same games that Ninty is releasing for Wii-U, and yet it still only sold an 8th of the PS2 sales in their respective lifetimes. Wii-U will have some great sellers, but the system itself will be lucky to hit GC numbers. Simply put, it's because noone cares about the console. It's weak last gen hardware that can't even hold a candle up to the likes of the PS4. Third Party suuport alone has already ensured the PS4 will dominate the Wii-U.
Imalwaysright  +   454d ago

That would be true if most engines today weren't scalable. If the the Wii U proves to be successful I see no reason why 3rd party publishers wouldn't want their games on it.

@ Diagal marine

Mario Kart Wii 33.95 million
Super Mario Bros 26.91 million
Super Smash Bros 11.85 million
Super Mario Galaxy 10.91 milliom
Super Mario Galaxy 2 7.09 million
Zelda Twilight Princess 6.84 million
Donkey Kong Country Returns 5.99 million

Why are you talking about the GC days when we have more recent history?

Wii was also weak compared to the PS3 but that didn't stop it from winning the generation. Same is true for PS2 and PS1, both less powerful than the competition.
badz149  +   454d ago
both the new consoles are likely to have bigger userbase compared to the Wii U early next year! The PS4 is already ahead in the UK by the matter of days despite a year headstart. and 3rd party games tend to not sell much on the Wii U. so...they should bother, why?
listenkids  +   454d ago
Nothing against Wii U, but I hope this is the case to fully get the most out of the next Deus Ex.
Gamesgbkiller  +   454d ago
I hope all games move to next gen..

We don't want games that hold the next gen consoles because the limitation of the old consoles.
someoneagain  +   454d ago
I can't decide what to get for the next Deus Ex: the upcoming $1000 Dell 4K monitor or the ASUS G-Sync monitor that has variable refresh rate up to 144Hz.

Either way will be better than 1080p/60 the PS4/XBO are limited to.

they could have a more than capable version of the next deus Ex on the WiiU. But the question is will they even try. There would be nothing worse for Nintendo than a sloppy port.
KakashiHotake  +   454d ago
Well the Wii U isn't next gen so it shouldn't come as a surprise at all. To be honest, the Wii U is what the Wii was supposed to be. I'm positive fanboys will disagree and attack me for that comment but it's the damn truth and you know it.
KonsoruMasuta  +   454d ago
Like it or not, the WiiU is a next gen console.

See, the Wii was a seventh gen console and the WiiU is it's successor. What comes after seven, boys and girls? Don't be shy! I know it's hard for you to count to any number above two but you have to try!

What? Oh, yes, you're absolutely right, Itachi83! The number is 8. Here is a gold star and a cookie!

That would mean it's a 8th gen console like the PS4 and XboxOne, meaning it's "next gen".

KonsoruMasuta  +   454d ago
Again, graphics don't matter when you're trying to tel lwhat a next gen console is. What matters is the generation it is released. The WiiU was released as an 8th generation console, that makes it next gen.

"i swear you nintendo fans make me sick the wii u is not next gen by any standers!"

I'm not a Nintendo fan. I'm a fan of gaming. My two PS4s that are staring at me right now will tell you that.

SpideySpeakz  +   454d ago | Well said

What does 'Next Generation' in anything means to you, in general? The next generation of people, doesn't essentially mean they'll be smarter or more physically fit than the previous. The next generation of cars, doesn't necessarily mean they'll get better gas mileage than older cars that came before them.

The Wii U is a next-gen console because it's the successor to the original Wii. Plain and simple.
Triforce_Germaine  +   454d ago
Lets use facts now shall we? By your logic graphics prove a consoles generation. So theres Wii U games that have better visuals then ps3 and 360, and the Wii U's hardware is more modern and stronger, maybe not at as big as ps4/xone, but it's still a leap and means its stronger MEANING its next gen by your logic. If you deny this you are just contradicting your self. Good day.

There has been no confirmation of it NOT coming to Wii U... Hell it was not even announced for which systems. Just some person on neogaf being nosy spotted something and ran with it.

Until an actual Eidos announcement comes out for which platform's it will be released on I'm just going to take the article with a grain of salt. I know fanboys are going to run with this as another reason to not get a Wii U. There pretty much foaming out the mouth with hate for Nintendo and the Wii U.

I would also like to believe that the Deus Ex that was released for Wii U was a testing ground for what the system can do with the property. Deus Ex for Wii U was met with great amount of praise. Sitting at a metacritic score of an 88.

Sathur  +   454d ago
I would agree with you there. look at the Wii U version of Assassins Creed 3. that was a tester for what the Wii U could do and as a result when they released Assassins Creed 4, it was a cracker.
You know what I mean. The company were testing the Wii U with there port of Assassins Creed 3. And once they learned they produced the much better Assassins Creed 4.

InTheLab  +   454d ago
But no one bought it. How many copies of Deus Ex Wiiu sold?

Or is it to hateful to bring up reality?

Also, Deus Ex HR on the 360/PS3 is sitting at 89 and 90 on PC. Director's cut on the 360 is at 100 and 90 on PC/PS3.

I don't understand the point of linking metacritic and not how many people who actually bought the game.

It's not about hate dude. The thing did not sale well on the WiiU so an educated guess says Eido won't bother making a WiiU version if they skip the PS3/360 version.
Sathur  +   454d ago
you have to give these games time. Deus Ex took its time coming out on Wii U and few retailers had it on shelves on release day. it will sell more given time. Same goes for Assassins Creed 4 on Wii U. it has only been out on Wii U a couple of weeks. And again only a few retailers have it on their shelves.
Right now retailers are all about PS4,Xbox One and oh I think we have Mario World 3D in the back...somewhere. this has been my experience so far anyway.
MrSwankSinatra  +   454d ago
Tomb raider, thief, ffxiv, sleeping dogs, FFXV, kingdom hearts 3 etc none of these games are On or even coming to wii u. What makes you think this will be any different.
TheEvilWithin  +   454d ago
Ok well same thing could be said about Sonic Lost world, Lego City, Bayonetta 2, X, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and whatever other exclusives that are coming to the system.

People need to remember its a TWO WAY STREET when it comes to console gaming. Its ALWAYS smart to have more then 1 console in your home. I'm getting a PS4 for those very games and then some but at the same time the Nintendo Wii U has some FANTASTIC exclusives coming to it as well. Not to mention the backwards compatibility with Wii games and then the Virtual Console library. Sure a little lacking at the moment but it does have some must have games like Earthbound and Contra 3.

At the end of the day IF this DOES or does NOT come to the Wii U its not the END OF THE WORLD. There are going to be other fantastic exclusives coming to the system that the PS4 or X1 does not receive.

Me personally don't mind sacrificing a little in the graphical department for some extra added control with the games I play but that's just me.
DomceM  +   454d ago
nintendo pisses me off.

They have great first party games. Why couldn't they for once make at least decent hardware? It sucks when your console is well known for being the weakest out of all competitors.

Breaks my heart to read headlines like this, but it is obvious it has to be this way. You can't make a game for next gen w/o compromises by catering to consoles like ps3/wii u.

The only reason to get wii u is for 1st party games b/c nothing else worthwhile will come to this console... and it will only get worse in the future.

Nintendo better pull their head out of their ass and understand that they need to release competitive hardware not just software.

Are you trying to tell me that a nintendo console with good hardware wont compete with other consoles out there?

It doesn't have to be the best. it just has to be better than 5 year old tech.

How is Wii U going to compete with ps4 and xbox one with no third party multiplat games?

This makes nintendo wii u solely for those who want first party games... And if you game on only wii u you are going to be missing out bigtime.

If they were at least somewhat competitive in the hardware department i wouldve bought their console.

Too much truth.
InTheLab  +   454d ago
Well, there's currently a higher install base on the WiiU but the problem is the fact that this game will fail on the WiiU.

Deus ex on WiiU sold less than 20k copies. Most hard core games on the Wii sold poorly and that trend will continue with the WiiU.

Nintendo has been marketing to children and that makes up the bulk of the install base for the WiiU so I don't expect many 3rd party titles to bother dumbing down their games to fit on the WiiU unless they also do the same for the PS3/360.

Now this is actually good news for those of us that own actual next gen consoles and PC gamers.
Landquake  +   454d ago
Sales wise, avoiding the WiiU may be an excellent strategy in the long run. Why develop a "hardcore" game such as Deus Ex for a console whose audience is comprised of mostly casual players?

Regardless of that, I can't wait for a true next gen Deus Ex. Human Revolution was awesome.

SE explained the Deus Ex universe a couple months back I think. They said a new console Deus Ex is in the works, but there are also several handheld or mobile titles also being worked on.

Please learn that everyone's definition about what defines a generation, does not have to agree with you or nintendo's definition.

Look up the term subjective, before you try to be a definition nazi.

By all means continue arguing from the viewpoint my opinion is right and yours which states the opposite will always be wrong.

And people wonder why n4g have no discussions, that don't devolve into my console is better than yours.

Here is a easy solution will the wii u, continue to receive 3rd party ports of ps4/xbox ones games after the ps3/360 are cut off.

Whatever the answer to that question is will define what generation it belongs to.

This is not even confirmed, and Deus EX on Wii U is the "definitive" version of that game. I have only played it at a friends house, but was very impressed. That game shows better than any I have played just how great the gamepad can work in a game.

As everyone else says those who buy a Wii U buy it for the 1st party games and the majority of people with the system have more than just the Wii U so not really a big deal.

The only SP game that did a good in recent memory with adding in a fun MP was ME3

Deus Ex HR was one of the best stealth games of last gen, so I have high hopes for this!

This is a possibility but, not a confirmation. The PC XBOX One and PS4 have a similar architecture so a person needed to work on all those is not a big stretch. Game publishers often have separate divisions for making/porting games. So until there is a direct confirmation this means little and even then that could still change.
