UE4 not 'intended' for Wii U, but could be ported.
According to Mark Rein, it is not the firm's 'intention' to bring Unreal Engine 4 to Nintendo's platform, however, the engine is very scalable...
According to Epic Games vice-president Mark Rein, the company doesn't intend "to bring Unreal Engine 4 to Wii U", however, the engine could run on Nintendo's upcoming console if "a customer decides they want to port an Unreal Engine 4 game" to it.
PR manager Dana Cowley added that -again-, "beyond the PC, we haven't confirmed any other platforms for Unreal Engine 4.""We have Unreal Engine 3 running on Wii U," Rein told VideoGamer at Develop yesterday.
"You saw games at the Nintendo press conference again this year - a fantastic demo by our friends at Warner Bros. showing Arkham City running on Wii U. And Aliens: Colonial Marines is coming on Wii U, that's also Unreal. There's, I'm sure, several others. Mass Effect was announced for it as well. So we're certainly playing a role there with Unreal Engine 3.
"I'll state that I don't think it's our intention to bring Unreal Engine 4 to Wii U, but Unreal Engine 4 is going to be supremely scalable.
"We'll run on mobile phones and on a wide variety of things, so if a customer decides they want to port an Unreal Engine 4 game to Wii U, they could. But Unreal Engine 3 is a really good fit for that platform."
So, it looks like Epic won't be 'directly' supporting Wii U with Unreal Engine 4, but at least there's confirmation that it runs on Nintendo's next console.
