Battlefield 4 won’t be coming to Nintendo’s Wii U, DICE creative director has confirmed and also refused to confirm the plans to launch the game on next-gen consoles.
Speaking with Videogamer, creative director Lars Gustavsson explained that the decision to skip Wii U was to “ensure that [the team] deliver something good”, rather than “risking” the project by stretching the team too thin.
“I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience, 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.
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].”
DICE also isn’t ready to discuss next-gen plans yet. When asked if the game will be available on Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, Troedsson told the Guardian.
“We’re in very interesting times right now. We’re on the verge of something brand new. We’ve been part of these transitions before and we know that great things come out of them. But we’re DICE – we’ve been around for 20 years and we’re not that quick to jump on hype trains – we move at a steady pace, we tread carefully.”
