When asked if he could “hint if the Wii U will be able to run Unreal Engine 4″, Geoff Keighley responded:
No, at GDC Mike Capps said Wii-U will be Unreal Engine 3.
And while I may simply be in denial, I’m not sure how much this confirms. Because, while Keighley recently filmed a feature about Unreal Engine 4 for Spike TV, maybe the announcement for the engine on the Wii U will come at Ninitendo’s press conference? It might be the sort of announcement they want to keep under-wraps.
What do you think though? Is this the definitive “no” we’ve been dreading? Or are you keeping hope alive?
Update: After reading Keighley’s comment, the folks at CVG contacted Epic Games. Their response?
[The company] has not confirmed platforms for Unreal Engine 4 beyond PC.
Or basically, there’s still hope. Probably. That’s how I’m taking it, at least.
