Similar to the Wii, it doesn't sound like Bethesda has any plans to support Wii U.

Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines, speaking with Eurogamer, said that the company has "nothing announced in development for Wii U." Hines wouldn't share any specifics as to why Bethesda isn't keen on the console, stating he'd "rather not go into that."

Hines' comments in full:

"We have nothing announced in development for Wii U. It's not something that we've done anything for previously. I don't even remember the last time we've done a Nintendo title. We don't have anything now. Whether or not we would in the future is TBD. As for why, I guess I'd rather not go into that."

What did you expect? It's the same with the new id Software. They all talk like the mother concern, ZeniMax. They will never support Nintendo or Linux. Why should they? That will only happen if Nintendo spend more money if Bethesda is worth. :(

Never heard of them, so it's probably no big deal.

They're missing out on a huge opportunity if they skip using the Wii U's gamepad for the next Fallout.

Bethesda is my second favourite publisher, so this is a real shame for me
