Irrational Has No Plans for Wii U Games Yet

Ken Levine of Irrational Games appeared in the Wii U third party software video at E3 to wax lyrical about the console, but don't take that as a sign that the BioShock developer has something in the works for Wii U.
Speaking to IGN, Levine was quick to explain that the team has no plans for anything on Wii U. While he didn't rule out a future appearance from Irrational, it seems pretty cut-and-dried that Levine isn't actively pursuing Wii U at the moment:
Just to be clear, there are no plans. I'm not saying it can't happen, but we have no plans to do any games for that platform.
Levine certainly believes in the Wii U's stance as a core gamers' console, though:
The fact that the Wii U has got two sticks... I feel it's like... It's a great year for the core coming back and saying, okay, have your touch screens, have your motion control, we'll try to make that work, and if you can pull that off it'll be really good.
Will Levine decide to bring his team's talents to bear on Wii U? Time will tell.
