Game Informer had an interview with Deep Silver's COO on their future outlook in the May issue that just came out.

Do you have next-gen plans or Wii U plans?

Not Wii U. With other companies, I've been very successful with Nintendo. With Wii U, the Nintendo market right now and their audience is not who we reach best. It's not something we're entertaining in the near or foreseeable future.

You'll see them on PS4 and the next Xbox.

Playstation 4 and the next Xbox are coming soon. What is your strategy for those two?

I would safely say that you'll see us there, but not on the first day. It's the same reason, the pioneer versus the settler...being there on the first day, that's for the big boys.

I never really understand these comments. It's like, where's the precedent? What open world games have failed on the Wii U that make them think there's not market for them? In fact, I can't even remember any Nintendo consoles getting open world games aside from True Crimes 1/2 on the GC and GTA:CS on the DS

They don't make anything that would really appeal to Nintendo fans and certainly not kids, those two groups being Wii U's main demos.

It's refreshingly honest.

This sounds like extreme sarcasm but I have a feeling you're actually being serious

The Wii U isn't selling and I don't believe that they would have releases software for the system even if it was.

wii U has almost universally poor software sales. Seems like the owners aren't willing to buy much unless mario is in the title.

So they went from supporting the Wii to totally abandon it.

Metro, they don't own. Just releasing Last Light. The IP belongs to the author of the novels, I think.

Does that mean they're not developing for the PS4 or NeXtBox because they're not selling either.

I'm just not willing to buy games at the current prices retailers are setting them up. Sub 30ish to sub 50 is too much for me. And with the way the market goes I know most prices will drop. I'm patient.

Not surprised.

Just look at people who bought the WiiU and why they did.

It is mostly to play first-party games. Third party is nice, but they can get those elsewhere.

Koch never announced a Wii U game in the first place, so what exactly is "that"?

The irony is it's basically the same as saying: "Yeah, (insert publisher) you're right! It's not worth it!"

Thought it was along the lines of "we don't have funds to support porting it to Wii U."

No, actually. 4A put the kibosh on that while the game was still under THQ. They were having a hard time getting it on Wii U and didn't think it was worth the trouble.
