Crytek 'excited' about Wii U

Crytek devs "very happy with their tests on the dev kits ", says studio founder

Crytek developers have been putting Nintendo's new Wii U hardware through its paces and have apparently been "very happy" with the results.


"The specs are very good," Crytek founder Avni Yerli told GamesIndustry during a chat about Nintendo's 2012 HD console.

"It's a challenge for designers, but once thought through it can add value, and that's what ultimately important," he added, presumably speaking of the unique screen-equipped controller.

He went on: "Our guys in Nottingham they are very happy with their tests on the dev kits and they're excited about it."

That's good news coming from Crytek - a developer known for pushing hardware to its limits and making some of the most technically demanding games ever.

Crytek is yet to announce any plans for Wii U, but that it's actively toying with a dev kit is encouraging.
