DICE creative director Lars Gustavsson has confirmed that Battlefield 4 is not in development for the Wii U. While speaking to Videogamer following the game's launch trailer at GDC, Gustavsson explained that the company wants to "play it safe" and focus their attention on the other platforms rather than stretching the team thin to develop for yet another platform.
I think overall for me as creative director, number one is to deliver a really great game and experience.
Sometimes, at least for us, it's focusing on what you do well and what you know well, and ensuring that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it.
I'd rather play it safe, deliver something really good and then look at the future and what could possibly be done than trying a bit too hard and [failing].
-Lars Gustavsson, DICE creative director
Battlefield 4 is currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It is scheduled for release in Fall 2013.
