Crytek: "fat chance" of Crysis 3 Wii U

But why?

Crysis 3 launches in the spring of 2013 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The Wii U is due out in time for Christmas 2012. So, will the sci-fi shooter sequel launch on Wii U, too?

"Fat chance," developer Crytek said.

Speaking to Destructoid, director of creative development Rasmus Højengaard said a Wii U release was "not on the cards".

"I don't think it's going to be possible," he said. "Right now the launch platforms are PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, and I don't think it's on the cards to do a Wii U version."

Unfortunately Højengaard failed to explain why. We've asked EA for comment.
