Tomb Raider Reboot Won't Be Coming To Wii U

The Future of Action / Adventure Games: BioShock Infinite, Max Payne 3, Tomb Raider And More

Both the Wii U and the Tomb Raider reboot from Crystal Dynamics were revealed at E3 last year. The thing about the Nintendo console is that it's finally going to be able to compete on the level of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 in terms of raw power. With Lara Croft returning later this year, some of you might be hoping that her next adventure comes to the Wii U as well.

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. A newly posted FAQ from Crystal Dynamics confirms it (via CVG). "When we started developing the game we made a conscious decision that it was all about building the game for a platform and making sure the game was specific to that platform," studio community manager Meagan Marie writes.

"Given that we’ve been working on the game quite a while before Wii U was announced I think it would not be right to try and port it across. If we started building a game for the Wii U we would build it very differently and we would build it with unique functionality." It's certainly likely that Lara Croft will eventually have a Wii U-based adventure of her own, but this upcoming game will not be it.
