No Wii U version for WWE 13, says THQ exec

Wrestling game to skip PC, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS too

THQ will not release a Wii U edition of its upcoming WWE 13 title, an executive at the company has said.


Cory Ledesma, the creative director for WWE Games at THQ, announced the decision on Twitter following questions from fans of the series.

WWE '13, a highly publicised game that THQ hopes will help improve its fortunes, is on track for becoming the most pre-ordered game in the series.

However the game, built at Tokyo studio Yuke's, will only release on PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Currently there are no plans for a Nintendo 3DS, PC or PS Vita edition of the game.

The game will launch across the west from October 30th.
