Electronic Theatre ImageEarlier this week our colleagues at Gaming Blend broke the news that the long awaited TimeSplitters Rewind is currently in development for PlayStation 3. However, a great deal of the gaming audience were enquiring about the possibility of the videogame coming to other formats, most notably the Wii U. Sadly, it doesn’t look as if this is on the cards at present.

“I think it’s going to be an off-the-table thing for now… But I don’t want to throw it out there just yet. But it’s all based on hardware limitations – because with such a small team we need as much support as we can get. We can make it scalable on Electronic Theatre Imagethe PC, but in terms of console development… we don’t want to say like ‘Wii U’ and then not be able to present like, anything – or if it looks, like (for the lack of a better word) crap. We want to wait; we don’t want to half-ass anything.” Stated project lead, Michael Hubicka in an interview with Gaming Blend.

“What’s holding me back on the Wii U, is as I read on the Wii U – it’s not really an HD contender in terms of Xbox One versus PlayStation 4… When it comes to the Wii U, it’s going to take a lot for us to scale things back so we can work on that. But… it doesn’t mean that what we have right now wouldn’t allow for us to scale things back, because if we’re going to be able to make it scalable on the PC – so players with lower-end systems can play – then hopefully we can do the same thing for the WiiU.”

The potential is there, then, by Crytek are unwilling to commit simply due to the fact that the project is a long way from complete and could end-up anywhere. If it grows in the same fashion as most Crytek projects it’s unlikely Wii U will be a part of the equation, but you can bet that Electronic Theatre will keep you updated if that does ever become a reality.
