Dishonored dev says Wii U did not show up on his 'filter'

Everyone's excited about the Wii U right? Right?! Apparently not so. Harvey Smith, the co-creative director behind Dishonored actually admitted that the Wii U wasn't on his radar at all.

In a recent interview with Games Industry, he was asked about the Wii U, specifically his thoughts about it since it will now seem to cater to more hardcore players. Smith then admits that the console didn't show up on his "filter".

When a new device comes out, that's a very fertile ground for exploring new ideas. Nintendo deserves accolades for that. I just don't know how far the new console goes. I didn't perceive what people's excitement of the device was. I don't know why, but it didn't show up on my filter somehow.

What does this mean for Dishonored on the Wii U? It most likely means that Nintendo fans won't be getting their hands on it once their new console comes out. It seems strange since the possibility of the Wii U being a major contender in hardcore games is quite high, that more and more games wouldn't find their place on all three consoles.

Though this obviously has nothing to do with other developers and their outlook on the Wii U, which actually has some major games planned for its release such as Assassin's Creed III, Mass Effect 3, and Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition, should a statement like this worry potential Wii U owners.
