Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim coming to the Wii U? – A definite possibility

The makers of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have told the official Nintendo Magazine that making a multi-platform game is a lot of work, but wants to make it happen. Bethesda’s Pete Hines was asked about his thoughts towards his support of Nintendo’s Wii U. He confirmed that there’s a strong possibility that Elder Scrolls will be on the Wii U.

“It’s definitely a possibility for the future. We’ll look at any platform that will support that games we’re trying to make, but that’s the key thing – the console has to support the game as it is designed.”
– Pete Hines, Vice President of PR at Bethesda

However, this doesn’t mean it’s officially confirmed. According to Bethesda’s Pete Hines, it isn’t easy to make games across multiple consoles.

“The more changes we have to make to a game the less and less palatable it becomes because making a game is an enormous process. Just doing 360, PS3 and PC – I don’t think people understand the amount of work that goes into that. All of the localization you have to do… all of the testing you have to do… on every platform in every language… It’s a pretty huge undertaking.”
