Wii U Not on Bethesda’s Radar

Last September, Nintendo fans were wringing their hands over the announcement from Bethesda—the company that brought you games like Skyrim and Elder Scrolls—hadn’t yet decided whether they’d be bringing their games to the Wii U.

And while it took them long enough to decide one way or the other, last month the company finaly announced that they had “no plans whatsoever” so bring any of its titles to the Wii U (or the 3DS, if we’re being thorough).

Bethesda’s VP or PR & Marketing, Pete Hines, spoke to Joystiq about the decision, and he reiterated the original statement:

“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.”

According to Hines, it’s “largely a hardware thing,” and Bethesda’s focus will continue to be to develop games for platforms that will support its games.

It’s disappointing news for Bethesda fans, but it doesn’t necessarily rule out their offerings in the future. Doesn’t sound exactly hopeful, however….

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
