Bad news part 2

2. No GTA 5 in WII U?

Reports coming in this morning state that strong rumors have arisen that Take-Two Interactive Software, the parent company of developers 2K, 2K Sports & Rockstar Games, are one of the developers that have halted their relations with Nintendo and are not interested in developing for the Wii U. We reported yesterday that ten companies returned their developer kits to Nintendo untouched. Nine of the ten were unnamed. These rumors are very strong, as Grand Theft Auto V is expected to be released on September 17, on the XBOX 360 and PS3 but not the Wii U.

Here is a statement given by a source who claims to work close with the team.

"There's no plans to ever bring a WWE game to the Wii U anytime in the distant future. I know this information because a 3D Animator on the project. I am working directly with people like Jeff Godfrey who is the art director on the project. Visual Concepts and 2K Sports is working with Yukes on the project.

You may remember that Wii U never received WWE '13 at launch while 360/PS3 did. Yukes has no interest in Wii U when they were working with THQ, and they still don't now that they're working with 2K Sports.

Also word around the offices is that Take Two and Rockstar have no plans to bring Grand Theft Auto or any of Rockstar's major M rated games to the Wii U."

Last June, Take-Two were interviewed by gamastura where they said they weren't in any rush to bring their core franchises to the Wii U. They were skeptical about the console as they said that Nintendo were not interested at the time to move into the mature market and produce GTA-like games for their console. Take-Two's CEO did state, that they were eager to kick off the next generation but based on what they said, it seemed that they were not eager for Nintendo's eighth generation console.

If this is true, this is another major blow to the already beaten-up Wii U console. In one of the worst launches since the Nintendo Gamecube, Nintendo's attempt to reach out third party developers have been nothing short of effortless. Many third parties have already claimed that they just don't have any ideas, time or patience to develop for the console as it could get way too techinical for them. I sent an email asking for a statement from Rockstar, 2K Games and the WWE Games team today and still await a response from any of the teams. Be sure to check back here on Dashhacks for their response.

You could have combined your posts into a single thread, you know.

GTA V would run like molasses on the Wii-U anyway. Better let the big boys handle it.

I know, the Wii-U can't even run NSMBU @ 60fps.

Just to clarify, the source is from a 4chan user so take that as you will. Still this would be bad news for the Wii U, but i'm getting it on PS3 anyway :)

I dont think a single person thought GTA5 would ever end up on the U. Those huge open world games must be a pain in the ass to port to other platforms. It would probably take a long time and need to sell many millions of copies to turn a profit, and there isnt even many millions of U's in homes.

The U could REALLY use games like this, but I cant see it happening until this thing blows up and starts flying off shelves.

You did not just compare NSMBU to GTA5, did you? Pretty sure its significantly more difficult to get GTA5 running on the U.

Turns out I have one of Sony's lap dogs following me around on gamefaqs. If you see him, don't feed him. He has a bad temper and is easily upset :D
