GTA publisher “skeptical” of Wii U

You may have noticed that Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3 house Take-Two is yet to announce any games for Wii U. That’s probably because of CEO Strauss Zelnick’s skepticism of the system.

He’s told as much to Gamasutra: “I’m skeptical.”

That attitude does not expand to new hardware from Microsoft and Sony though; for those machines the man can’t wait.

“For a company like ours, it’s a great opportunity,” he explains. “[New console launches] separate the winners from the losers — and we fully expect to be one of the winners.”

There’s also hope for something fresh from the company; “I don’t want to minimize the challenge of creating titles for new technology or the economic challenges of doing that, but if you get it right, it’s a terrific time to launch a new IP.”

EA recently said as much as well. Here’s hoping, then.
