Rumour: Rockstar Won't Be Bringing WWE Or Grand Theft Auto To The Wii U

Posted by Damien McFerran

More positive news, then

According to a post on 4chan (the source alone may well set alarm bells ringing), Rockstar Games is not looking to support the Wii U in any meaningful way.

The poster — who claims to be working on the next iteration of the official WWE game — had this to say:

There's no plans to ever bring a WWE game to the Wii U anytime in the distant future. I know this information because a 3D Animator on the project. I am working directly with people like Jeff Godfrey who is the art director on the project. Visual Concepts and 2K Sports is working with Yukes on the project.

You may remember that Wii U never received WWE '13 at launch while 360/PS3 did. Yukes has no interest in Wii U when they were working with THQ, and they still don't now that they're working with 2K Sports.

Also word around the offices is that Take Two and Rockstar have no plans to bring Grand Theft Auto or any of Rockstar's major M rated games to the Wii U.

Given the dubious nature of the source, this should definitely be considered a rumour for now — but Rockstar wouldn't be the first publisher to pass on Nintendo's console. We hope there's no truth in the report, or that Rockstar will at least consider bringing some of its titles to the Wii U.

I can expect at least some developers to work with the Wii U. If Rockstar is a hold-out, so be it.

This is absolutely not news to me. Zelnick made his feelings clear the second he uttered the words "I'm skeptical". Seriously guys stand with me and buy games like Watch Dogs and ACIV to put this douche in his place. Make him regret shafting the system.

"Dude, I met this 3d animator at rockstar and he said they don't want to work with the Wii U because their cousins' friends' uncle said EA doesn't like Nintendo."

Yeah sounds real legit.... I'll wait for Rockstar's investor meeting. Sounds more ps360 fans hate that Nintendo has a superior console, so making up rumors is the next best thing.

Rockstar always has some excuse... now Nintendo has a powerful system it's going to be that the user base is too small... but I guarantee that they will jump on the Nextbox and next sony systems on day one. Lets just face it, they don't like Nintendo. Lego City is better anyway.

If the Wii got 'Bully', I'd be surprised if they neglected WiiU. This 'rumor' makes it sound like these devs are holding their nose at the stench of WiiU. We'll see the facts soon. These would be heavy hits though, and WiiU will get the rep of being a shovelWare kiddie box.

Please Nintendo, rock the VC like you've never rocked it before. This would be so much win.

Getting on 3DS? I wouldn't rule it out.

I hope this isn't true. I don't know why anyone would jeopardise their job by posting inside information on 4chan but maybe he just wanted to put Wii U fans out of their misery. Rockstar were good to Wii by most 3rd party standards but maybe they didn't get the sales.

Anyone who thinks Wii U doesn't want or need GTAV is misguided. For the Wii U to be a success it has to at least have some mainstream appeal and there's already going to be a 1-2 year EA drought guaranteed. If sales don't pick up, Nintendo will just start putting resources into 3DS instead. GTAV with its own Wii U advert showing off unique features would be a better system seller than anything confirmed to be out by then and the Wii U needs system sellers. Not getting WWE doesn't bother me in the slightest. It's not real wrastling

If Rockstar released both Bully: Scholarship Edition and Manhunt 2 on the Wii, I can't see them ignoring Wii U totally. And this source is definitely fake, WWE '14 will be published by 2K / 2K Sports...not Rockstar games, Rockstar is a owned part of 2K (aka Take-Two Interactive).

I love Bully: Scholarship Edition on Wii. Rated it 10/10 as it's a fantastically realistic and vivid game with lots of freedom, great music and voice acting, plus with great Wii enhancements. I also rated Manhunt 2 on Wii rather high for its stealth gameplay, baddonkey controls and interesting plot. I even have the third Rockstar game on Wii: Tabletennis, but honestly, that one became redundant with the arrival of Wii Sports Resort.

I would pick up anything Rockstar would do for Wii U, especially GTA5 with Flying Lotus radio station!!!! Don't care much for wrestling but if it's made by Rockstar I'd give it a try as well.

Apart from that, these rumour news are a new low. I mean, 4chan, really?!?

So what? Gamecube and Wii didn't have GTA either and it wasnt the end of the world. Nintendo still made profits. For me personally, i've never liked GTA anyway, so no big deal. I always found the story and gameplay to fall flat, and the only thing i liked was stealing cool cars/helicopters and wrecking them into stuff. Outside of that, i found the missions and stuff frustrating and bland. Oh and its treatment of female characters is pretty degrading as well, and i'm not just talking about the prostitution either. Even the women that arent whores are treated similarly.

Because they released it on the wii and the game was released a month before the release of the wii u.

@Zellybeanie Da Bears, of course.

In my opinion, and if this rumor is true, it only hurts Rockstar in the long run. Forming a good relationship with Nintendo would only help them, but by shunning them it hurts both financially (if and when the Wii U install base booms) and by making them look like pompous douches. Nintendo is the greatest gaming company of them all, and they will survive with or without GTAV and WWE either way.

GTA china town wars broke the 1 million mark and even outsold the psp version, bully and manhunt 2 on wii didn't fare any worse than the other consoles these games were released on.

Come on rockstar, Don't be pr!cks and give the wii u GTA5, just to knock that grin off of all those haters faces.

I really wish that people that give negative feedback about mature titles coming to the Nintendo Wii you would really stopjust because you feel that games are immoral or bad for a system does it mean in actuality your opinion is correct or correct for some homes its a game if you dont know difference between reality and fantasy or havent been taught i fell sorry for you, I would love for more mature titles to come whether there will be immoral or not its up to you, yourself if you're old enough or up to your parents to buy that video or that game that you think in your opinion is bad or immoral or whatever label you want to put on a game but don't be so sour for everyone else that may look forward to that particular title

tanookisuit

tanookisuit said:

Sure it's 4chan, but let's say they're right. Should we be surprised? Rockstar has steadily had it in for Nintendo all through the 3D generations of systems bringing nothing for the most part, and when they do it isn't exactly well advertised so it doesn't move much on top of it coming out later so interested buyers would get it elsewhere as with Manhunt and Bully. They've never put GTA on any Nintendo home system, just portables and they're nowhere near as brutal as the home stuff. Rockstar is like Epic Games and a few others, chronic excuse making fanboy haters you just have to learn to accept and ignore or buy their junk elsewhere.

I can believe GTA never coming but WWE would be a huge stretch as wrestling games have been titles that move nicely enough on Nintendo systems going way way back.

While not having the support of a big company like Rockstar is unfortunate, it is also old news. This doesn't bother me too much though, since I haven't been too impressed with any of their games for a long time. Though if I ever did consider purchasing GTA V, it would have to be on Wii U, but given Rockstar's history of hardly ever releasing games for Nintendo's systems, it seems highly unlikely that they would start now. All in all, not too big of a loss for me anyway.

LDXD

@tanookisuit I don't think rockstar has it in for Nintendo, from what I remember when gta3 came out Nintendo didn't want it because it was too violent

But anyways I don't see this coming to the wii u if it does it will probably come to late and most people who really want it will already have it on another system
Lets just hope that if sleeping dogs 2 comes out it doesn't skip the wii u

It's wrestling. The kids apparently like it. Today's product anyway. If most of the negative rumors added up to be true, it would just be embarassing. All the spinning of this in the world can't ignore the probability that Nintendo did not launch the system, and intend to get shutout of big titles from big developers.

But other than EA and some handful of devs who don't know what to do with the dev kit, most of it is probably hogwash.

I probably wouldn't bother with GTA5 or WWE, but I definitely won't if they are only on 360/PS3. They are both high profile franchises though, so if they do appear it would give the Wii U a boost.

A lot of recent releases that have skipped the Wii U have turned out to be pretty mediocre/bad though (i.e. Aliens CM, Star Trek etc), so I'm starting to think it isn't necessarily a bad thing when hyped up shovelware isn't coming to the Wii U.

To be fair I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, and perhaps I'm weak-willed when looking at fictional violence at GTA level (but I'm not against them, of course). Given that this is a popular franchise, it would help the Wii U, and I say the more games the better. I hope this rumor is false, and if it isn't, let's prove them wrong about being unprofitable by buying Watch Dogs and Splinter Cell.

@Elhijodelrio Last I heard, stealing cars, killing cops, dealing drugs and banging prostitutes were immoral acts, simulated or otherwise. You think that's just a matter of personal opinion? Then answer me this: would you take the same stand for one of those Japanese rape simulators? (Yes, they are considered video games.)

@GuyMan Yeah... really. Take a good look. You give yourself and others like you a bad name like 'man children' by resorting to childish name-calling ('moralfags'?) instead of mannered, intellectual discourse. Grow up.

These are just rumors for now but I fully expect Grand Theft Auto 5 to not come to the Wii U. As for future WWE games, I'm not completely sure why they wouldn't release it on Wii U. Perhaps they don't feel like porting it over from the PS4 and the next Xbox since the Wii U isn't selling incredibly well right now. That would be unfortunate because I'd like to buy one of the WWE games at some point.

@toxoraxiom oh I'm sorry I overlooked the question you asked if the rating on that particular game was beyond rated M sure if there was such a rating as far as X I see no problem with it, but that game simulating a rape act I would consider more of something along the lines of porn type game to me and again this is only my personal opinion my opinion may be different than many others here, some people may want a game like that rated E for everyone, I would NOT buy this type of game for myself also me being a parent that wouldn't be a game I would buy my kids, but by no means does that mean that I would suggest to sensor someone else's household or alter thier playing/viewing habits for them or there kids its not my place to imply anythang, its only my place to intervene when it comes down to my own kids in my own household, if this is coming down to a point to where it's going to be said that video games are making people do violent things I totally disagree with that if someone is violent that seed has been there for a long time, some of the most diabolical deviants, malice hearted people have came from the best homes in the world

@DarkNinja9

No, I wouldn't say they're doing it for the fun of it. The problem is mostly with Nintendo/Wii U. It's simply not built for the long term. Just like every console generation, they get tired towards the end of the life span. The problem with Wii U is not so much now, but in 2-3 years. It will be tired in the standard tech sense, and will lose out on more and more third party titles.

The other consoles will be set for longer term. Not to say at all Wii U won't have lots of great games. They definitely will. It's just pretty much a Wii rerun in the big picture.

Actually it will end up being more indie-dev than anything. Mostly all the hot games that are coming for it are mostly indie-dev games. It's sad too cause almost all the brand name retail games (Call of Duty, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, etc.) are becoming nothing but milked rehashes nowadays.

@GameLord08 This franchise was immoral crap before it was one of the most top-rated, third-party franchises in modern gaming. The Postal series doesn´t have the popularity or high ratings that the GTA franchise has, but that doesn´t make the content any more moral. And if it became even more popular than GTA today, it wouldn´t make it any more immoral either.

@ToxorAxiom: That's your personal opinion of the game, and that's fine. Nobody's forcing you to play it. Nonetheless, don't use that as an excuse to remain in denial of the Wii U's tangible issues right now.

Immoral game or not, everyone regards it as a blockbuster from a business perspective. It's mighty telling when such a franchise doesn't make an appearance on a console.

Tell them that what he did was just a matter of his own ´´personal opinion´´ and not a moral issue. I´ve said it once and I´ll say it again, immoral is still immoral, simulated or otherwise! Financial issues, critical acclaim, lack of popular franchises and the like has had nothing to do with what I said in the first place, yet people here like you here keep trying to pull the wool over our eyes by clouding the moral stand I took with ones pertaining to business, ratings and even childish name-calling.

@ToxorAxiom: I think I made it pretty clear the first time that I'm not interested in discussing my stand on GTA's moral values, much less since it has less to do with the actual issue at hand here that the article presents. This is neither the time nor the place.

It also amuses me that you accuse me of "pulling the wool over people's eyes" when you know nothing of my perspective on GTA or its moral values. I hardly mentioned anything on the subject, in fact. You'd have noticed that if you weren't intent on being so self-righteous over the matter.

what's also very unsettling in this thread this is that someone has the audacity to compare games and morality and their personal beliefs with an actual tragedy that has happened to 3 woman and 1girl, just to make a point over a gaming issue are you serious you coulda made that point a different way, instead of exploiting them even more than they already been exploited, and naming their names on top of it, , thats tacky, don't play on others tragedies to get sympathy votes for your crusade against '' immoral'' games

@Elhijodelrio I was simply referring to your comment about boxing and morality and how boxing and the things you can do in gta is not even close to being the same thing and its their choice that they decide to beat on each other its also regulated and their is a professional doctor available right there, killing innocent civilians is also against the law in most parts of the world even when countries or at war not to mention morally wrong. My point is if you think boxing is the same morally as killing innocents, stealing cars ect well then I would question your sanity

@LDXD futhermore that other persons comment was in question for thier stand on that game or in games like this, and i think if one is to be in front on a crusade of morality then why other things are not in question as far as falling within the beliefs of a person, i have been taught never to do a half butt job do 100percent not 50!or not to do at all!

@Elhijodelrio I've read like every comment on here trust me my comprehension is perfectly fine, you as trying to say that he has no right to judge gta because he has mike Tyson's punch out in his avatar, which morally is no where near the same thing morally as gta. My point was boxing is nowhere near the same thing morally if you think its fair to compare boxing to stealing, shooting,dealing drugs,sleeping with prostitutes ect well then your wrong

@Elhijodelrio do you not remember all the controversy gta got years ago for all this, I don't remember mike tyson's punch out, or any boxing or sports game going through that most of them are rated t- teen or e-everyone, the guy has every right to think gta has moral issues he's not the first

@Elhijodelrio not trying to get you upset because its not that big a deal its just a game and I agree I would love to see gta5 on the wii u I think it would do good for the system, my main argument was boxing and killing sprees lol don't worry about it I think we understand each others point

@GameLord08 First, you regarded my moral stance as a "personal opinion" and then accused me of using "that as an excuse to remain in denial of the Wii U's tangible issues." I didn't bring up the Wii U's issues. The issue for me was (and is) Rockstar's M-rated franchises. That's pulling wool over the eyes of others regarding why I said what I did in the first place. My stance here is regarding morality, not business, and I can make that stand freely. Morally, they are garbage. Not opinion. Fact. Don't want to discuss it here? ("...not the time, nor the place...") Then don't reply in the first place. Simple.

This is a comments section of a public website and we're still free to make a stance if we wish, as we are also free to ignore them.

all right, all right, enough is enough, please — let's stop making this argument personal. we understand there are those who love the GTA series and want a Wii U iteration and those who don't for many reasons, but any further attacks on one another from either side (which are against our Rules...) may result in temp-bans. Let's keep our focus on the article at hand and not each other, please :3

@LDXD reality the boxing comment was, like i am against drugs i hate them, but i smoke cigarettes and am alcoholic at home BUT ITS LEGAL!!! in theory there different but in reality they're very much the same drug is a drug, or heavy taxing of cigarettes but not the same taxing on alcoholic beverages, and both kill.... Smh

@ToxorAxiom: My statements on the Wii U's issues prior to the last comment weren't intended for you directly in the first place. I wasn't "accusing you" of anything personally, especially since it is obvious we were approaching this from entirely different wavelengths. I'm confused as to why you're continuing this when it's now so obvious we weren't discussing the same thing from the beginning.

And yes, a moral stance is a personal opinion. It can be influenced by anything from religion to personal tradition - take gay marriage, for example. Believe it or not, there is no universal perception of right and wrong. However, that does not in any way infer that I was agreeing or disagreeing with you or your stance in the first place.

Lastly, this is indeed a public forum and you are free to make a stance - regardless, it is unnecessary of you to force those values as anything more than opinion, much less accuse me of obscuring them.

Now if you'll care to pardon me, I'm no longer interested in continuing this. Let's just agree we have our differences and part ways with our views (and dignity) intact.

I'm so over the GTA series, but it doese suck that there are even more rumors about "big budget" games missing the Wii U.
