No Metal Gear Revengeance for Wii U

Written by David Stellmack

A decision on a PC port still coming

As Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is in the home stretch of being completed, sources tell us that one thing that has been decided is that there isn’t going to be a Wii U version. Porting it to the Wii U is apparently just not in the cards, as the game was not designed for the Wii U.

While a PC port of the game was long said to be in the card; now, the focus is on getting the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions out the door and then and only then will the attention turn to the possibility of a PC port of the game.

The decision not to do a Wii U port is said to be due to the developers’ belief that the strongest advantage of the Wii U is the GamePad, and Revengeance was designed to use a typical game pad from the ground up. While in the planning stages for the game, the developers were not even thinking about the possibility of a GamePad similar to what comes with the Wii U. Still, sources tell us that this does not close the possibility of Metal Gear appearing on the Wii U at some point in the future.
