Battlefield 4 Not Coming to Wii U

So much for that EA support.

Don't expect to see Battlefield 4 on the Wii U. Despite DICE's new shooter appearing on nearly every other platform under the sun - currently Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, but with an eye on next-generation - working with Nintendo's console is just spreading the team a little too thin.

"We are not actively looking at the Wii U right now," DICE's general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson told Gamesradar. Creative director Lars Gustavsson further explained to Videogamer that "I'd rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].

"I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience," he added. "Sometimes, at least for us, it's focus on what you do well and what you know well, and ensure that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it."

It's yet another third-party game to not see a Wii U release, following Dead Island: Riptide and Saints Row 4. At the very least, it marks a pretty huge shift in support from EA for Nintendo's console - remember former CEO John Riccitiello's very public commitment to the Wii U platform? No? Watch it below.
