Dead Island: Riptide Skips Wii U, Deemed "Not Worth It"
Posted on Thursday, March 21 @ 11:30:00 PST by Jonathan_Leack
The Wii U just had another door slammed in its face. Poor Wii U.
In response to a user on Twitter asking why Dead Island: Riptide isn't coming to Wii U, Deep Silver replied with the following:
Deep Silver isn't the only developer that hasn't been willing to take the plunge. At this point it's not only a matter of having to put in extra time to utilize the Wii U's unique characteristics, but doing it for a platform that doesn't have that large of an audience. The Wii U's touchpad is proving to be a barrier in a similar way the PlayStation 3's cell processor was; it hasn't proved particularly useful and is an unnecessary headache for developers.
More than anything, the Wii U's poor software sales are a serious concern. Until the Wii U can prove that it's worth the investment, developers are going to continue saying things on Twitter that make Nintendo fanboys rage.
