The Nintendo Wii U, with all its best intentions, isn’t catching on as well as Nintendo had hoped, leading to at least one major retailer in the UK dropping the console from its outlets. We’re not sure why this is the case, although some have cited the lack of big named titles as being one of the reasons why people are holding out for Sony and Microsoft’s offering, and it looks like Bethesda’s latest announcement will not be doing Nintendo any favors either.
Speaking to Joystiq at this year’s Quakecon, Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, revealed that the company has no plans to bring Wii U ports of The Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and The Evil Within. Hines was quoted as saying, “None of the games we’ve announced are being developed for the Wii U, so it’s guaranteed that none of those games are coming to Wii U. Will any future ones come out? I can’t say for sure, in our near-term focus it’s not on our radar.” Hines also went on to state that it was a “hardware thing” that held them back from publishing games on the Wii U.
