Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has Wii U in its Sights

ESRB rating says so

Recent weeks and months have brought a mixture of good and bad news for those hoping to see Wii U join in with various big-budget multi-platform titles. Of course, developers face the challenge not just to make adjustments to the Wii U hardware, but also to make use of the Wii U GamePad capabilities.

It seems we have one more title to add to the list making the jump to Wii U, upcoming FPS release Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, with an ESRB rating listing Nintendo's new system as a platform. It's a title that uses CryEngine 3 visuals, which reinforces comments from Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli earlier this summer that CryEngine 3 "runs beautifully" on Wii U.

The title is set to arrive on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on 15th January, but there's no confirmation as yet on Wii U release details. In light of the aiming mechanics shown on the GamePad in titles such as ZombiU, it'll be interesting to see what approach the developer takes with controls.
