Unlikely that Crysis 3 is coming to Wii U

Those hoping for Crysis 3 on the Wii U may be disappointed to hear that the game is unlikely to have a Wii U version. In an interview with Destructoid, Crytek’s director of creative development, Rasmus Hoejengaard, commented that there was not a “fat chance”.

He goes on to say that he doesn’t think it would be possible and that he didn’t think “it was on the cards” to do a Wii U version of the game and that the chosen platforms for the game are the PC, PS3 and the Xbox 360.

Crytek were initially positive about the Wii U so it will be interesting to see if they have any plans for the console seeing as Crysis might not be on the menu.

    There is not a fat chance? Hmmm…Cant say I heard that one before. Ive heard many people use “fat chance” a million times. Straight and to the point. This comment however, is worded funny. Maybe a misquote? Or is it European? Anybody have any ideas? Im not suggesting that the game may still come out on Wii U. Im only curious on the comment itself. Im American and I havent heard it worded like that before.

      Hmm, I was actually thinking about this earlier today because usually when you say “fat chance” you’re saying that there isn’t a chance but to then put not in front of that is like saying there’s not not a chance…

      However, in the video Hoejengaard says “not a… fat chance”. The hesitation might suggest that he was going to say something else maybe?

      I don’t know, I’m analysing this way too much.

      Its almost sounds like he saying not a slim chance or not a no. Very strange response to the comment thats for sure.

    Guaranteed when the Wii U blows up they’ll try to port it. I don’t care either way I never played any of the crysis games, I have better and more engaging games to play in my roster.

    That sucks. Crysis 3 would look good on the Wii U on full power.

    Though Crytek aren’t that good at keeping framerates steady in there games.

    I hate how so many developers are praising the Wii U but they still choose to “boycott” the system.
    Crytek said so many nice things about the system, they already have the CryEngine running on the system and yet, they aren’t gonna use it? Seriously come on!

    • I know right? I’d be interested to see what’s going on here.

    • RockD79

      It very well could just be a gag order. Just have to wait a while to find out.

      If it was a gag order then why didn’t they just say no comment like Activision why go as far as saying no chance?

    Crytek and others also praised the wii and never worked on it.

    Is that a gameplay screenshot? If so, its VERY impressive
