The Wii U is going through a pretty rough launch at the moment, even if it is selling very well. Suffice it to say that if you’re looking to pick one up and one of your big purchasing factors is being able to play Metro: Last Light on it come spring 2013, you may want to think twice.
According to NowGamer, 4A Games recently took a look at the Wii U’s specs and were thoroughly unimpressed. Says chief technical officer Oles Shishkovtsov:
[The] Wii U has a horrible, slow CPU.
Another 4A staff member, Huw Beynon, also didn’t sing the console’s praises.
We had an early look at it, we thought we could probably do it, but in terms of the impact we would make on the overall quality of the game – potentially to its detriment – we just figured it wasn’t worth pursuing at this time. It’s something we might return to. I really couldn’t make any promises, though.
Thoughts, single-players? Disappointed? Relieved that they can spend more time polishing the other versions? Let us know!
Metro: Last Light releases spring 2013 for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
