Meagan Marie of the Crystal Dynamics team recently confirmed to us that Tomb Raider is not in development for the Wii U at this time.
“Tomb Raider is in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. No Wii U at this time!”
Although there’s no development going on at this time, other developers have mentioned that the Wii U is very easy to develop for, and the many features of the gamepad could easily make Tomb Raider on the Wii U a hit, should Crystal Dynamics decide to develop, or even port, the game to the Wii U. The new Tomb Raider is far away from being released, with a tentative launch date of March 2013.
Square Enix recently announced that they were developing two AAA-titles for the Wii U, and apparently, the new Tomb Raider isn’t one of those games.
Tomb Raider really does have a good chance of coming to the Wii U, but we’ll have to wait and see.
