Crytek, developer of Crysis and the CryEngine, hopes that there will be a market for core gaming on the Wii U, but isn't sure it's part of Nintendo's strategy. CryEngine's director of global business development, Carl Jones also said that the Wii U is "something we're really interested in."
When asked directly about the possibility of a market for core gaming on the Wii U, Jones was hopeful but quite realistic.
"I really hope so but I don’t think it’s a necessary part of their strategy. The Wii is great at the games people like playing on it. I'm not sure yet what Nintendo's strategy might be for hardcore.
"I don't know if we’ll see flagship core titles on that platform – as a fan of Nintendo I’d love to see it personally, but I also enjoy playing the non-core titles a great deal."
