Looks Like Fallout 4 Will Not Be Hitting The Wii U

Bethesda Softworks’ lack of Wii U support bodes ill for Nintendo’s console.

Fallout 4 could either be one of the worst kept secrets in gaming, or one of the best. Everyone seems to believe that it is in development – heck, some of us are simply raging at Bethesda Softworks for not providing any hints that it actually exists. However, there’s one thing we know for sure: Fallout 4 won’t be arriving on the Nintendo Wii U.

This is based off of Bethesda Softworks vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines recently stating that as far as the Wii U is concerned, “it’s not something that we are currently developing for. I don’t know whether that changes down the road or not. It depends on the games that we are making and how we think it aligns with that console, and how the hardware aligns with the other stuff we are making. We will see.”

Fallout 3 and its subsequent expansions never made their way to the Wii either, but given how the Wii U is capable of many current generation titles like Ninja Gaiden 3 and Darksiders 2, one would think that Fallout 4 would at least be given a chance. However, there’s the kicker: the fourth game may not even be releasing for this generation’s console. After all, rumours were strong on it being an Xbox One exclusive.

While that never came to pass, it’s still noted that Bethesda is already behind next gen console development as indicated by cross-generational titles like Wolfenstein: The New Order and The Elder Scrolls Online. If Fallout 4 does see an announcement, perhaps next year, then look for it to be solely on next gen consoles – which sadly, won’t include the Wii U. Then again, wait and watch, and take everything with a grain of salt.

    I hope fallout never gets involved with the wii u, Bethesda has a real jewel in their crown. I feel the wii u will pull a sort of move that they pulled with bayonneta were its only a wii u exclusive and I have another feeling they’d do something like exclusive content for people who’d buy a wii u.

      Bayonetta 2 became an exclusive because Nintendo was the only one willing to give money to the Developers, don’t make shit up.

    • PattonFiend

      For sure. Without Nintendo, Bayonetta would have died and would have never even seen a sequel. They are funding the series out of their own pockets…

  • PsychoV

    There is absolutely no way in any possibility it will be an exclusive to any console. If anything itd be a PC exclusive.

    Nothing for NINTENDO! 🙁

    That’s a shame. I have a Wii U, and it’s the only console I’m buying this gen. The PS4 and Xbone don’t have anything new compared to the PS3 and 360 to warrant me buying one. Graphical power doesn’t cut it, and I’ve had my fill of sadistic-super serious-tough guy games that they offer.

    I’d hate to miss out on Fallout 4, cause I can only imagine how awesome it would be to use the gamepad screen as a PipBoy, and use is for VATS.

      “don’t have anything new compared to the PS3 and 360” Except for all the games that will be released on them that won’t be on the PS3, 360, or Wii U that you want to play? Last time I checked the games were the reason for purchasing a GAME system, not the graphical power, if you want that your best choice is a PC . Buy or don’t buy whatever you want, I don’t care, but if you’re going to have a reason to do either, it should at least make sense.

    The only good Nintendo games are games developed by Nintendo unfortunately. It’s because their characters and worlds are within the limitations of their consoles’ tech. It’s been an ongoing dilemma for quite some time because they’ve been favoring form over function. Function being a necessary groundwork of technology ample enough to give outside developers enough freedom to do almost anything they want. As games become huge and sprawling sandboxes (like Fallout obviously), they’re gonna tax the system extensively… and they seem to be breaking the bank on Nintendo’s systems already. Developers are already leaving it in the dust… *cough *EA *cough *cough (I know it’s an evil empire).

    This game that doesn’t exist is not coming to the Wii U. DOOOOOM!
