Dead Island Riptide is Not Coming to Wii U Because of Current Engine Refinements
Dead Island Riptide will be released on the Wii U because Techland would have to completely rebuild the game, or port the engine over.
In an interview with Digital Spy, creative producer Alexander Toplansky, said while there are no plans at the moment to port the game over, they wanted to focus their time on making the best version of the game they can make now.
“One of the opportunities we had for Riptide was to continue the development of the engine, and really improve it and make a lot of refinements,” he said. “The things that are required to bring something to a new platform, you need to either really get to be integrating it deep into the engine, or you’ve got to [do] a port.
“Neither one of those was a satisfactory outcome for us, so we decided to do what we got platform-wise and just make sure that we can deliver the best experience we can.”
Dead Island Riptide will be infesting stores on April 23rd in North America and on April 26th in Europe.More From Playeressence Mario Kart Double Dash Final Fantasy Vs 13 on PS4 to Block Used Games 2 Wishlist PS4?
