Bethesda: We'll develop for the Wii U if it can handle our games
Bethesda's Pete Hines has said that they will be glad to look into bringing their games to the Wii U if it has the horsepower to handle them.
The publisher/developer shunned the Wii as it would've required them to completely redevelop demanding titles like Fallout 3 or Oblivion in order for them to run on it.
Hines said: "Our motto has always been: We want to make our games available to the widest audience possible on whatever platforms that will support the game. So to whatever extent new consoles fit with the kind of games we are making and support them technologically, we would certainly do that. The Wii wasnt even an option we would have to make wholesale changes to the games we were making on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC to make them work on Wii."
"I honestly know nothing about the tech specs of the new platforms and whether or not they are a good fit for what we are making with say Rage and Skyrim and Prey 2," he continued. "If they are a good fit for the kind of games we are making then, absolutely, we would look to put them out for those. But beyond that I cant get into specifics. We support technology like that when we feel the addition of it makes sense. I think we would look to support things, whether it be a special type of control or whatever, when it does something we cant already do with a normal controller."
